[resolved] RE: The domain mapping plugin - Network Admin link is http// not http:// (11 posts)

    Hi Ipstenu and other WP ppl

    I'm having a similar problem with my domain mapping ... in that my link to Network Admin is http// and not http://

    I've used WordPress MU domain mapping for a couple of years now ... The 'one odd thing' I had done this week was to edit the network admin > site > settings ... so they changed from

    subdomain.damien.co to mapped-domain.com

    see screenshot http://awesomescreenshot.com/0ac9l9x39

    This is something that I read on Otto or Donncha blog

    This 'screams from the roof top' at being a user issue but I wonder if it's an un-intended bug in domain mapping plugin or a WP Network issue?

    Cheers

    Damien

  2. The 'one odd thing' I had done this week was to edit the network admin > site > settings ... so they changed from

    subdomain.damien.co to mapped-domain.com

    Ooooooh no. That's not how it works. You should never have to change those. Heck, halfelf.org still shows as tech.ipstenu.org from that screen and it's okay.

    Can you un-do that?

    Hi Mika

    Yeh ... changing that back to subdomain.domain.co fixes the issue with http//

    the link for network admin changes back to damien.co/wp-admin/network

    so there is a 'bug' in there somewhere ... if you change the network > site ?settings domain then the Network admin link looks like http//damien.co/wp-admin/network

    Note the difference in the 2 URL's

    Is this a WP bug or a Domain Mapping unexpected 'feature'

    cheers

    Damien

  4. I use domain mapping and it's just fine, so ... It's probably your setup.

    Are you saying that if you leave the "network admin > site > settings" alone, the URL is damien.co/wp-admin/network and not http://damien.co/wp-admin/network ?

    Are you trying to domain map the top-level domain?

    Hi again

    sorry been out of town for a short break

    In answer to your question ... yes if I leave "network admin > site > settings" alone, the URL is damien.co/wp-admin/network and not http://damien.co/wp-admin/network ?

    screenshot here ... https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1139278/URL%20link%20damien.JPG

    so this is a small typo-bug with WordPress core I think.

    So coming back to the other WP user (and my concern) ... if you change the home and site URL for a sub-site you end up with this broken link with http// and not http://

  6. I can't get to dropbox (work, blocked, blah blah).

    Okay.

    Leave network admin > sites > settings alone. We call that doing_it_wrong() ;)

    It's not a bug, you're just doing things weirdly.

    Again: Are you trying to domain map the top-level domain?

    HI Mika

    nah -- I was not trying to map my top level domain (I tried that previously and found the domain mapping plugin wouldn't accept that).

    Checkout this tut (step 5) which *might* have been where I read up on changing network settings > sites > site url

    http://wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/wordpress-multisite-beyond-basics-essentials-and-domain-mapping/

    I'm sure there is some mention in the Codex about siteurl and homeurl for network settings - I'm going go trawl through it til I find it.

    Cheers
    Damien

  8. *mrph* I don't know why tutsplus makes it so complicated.

    Did you put in your server IP or your CNAME at /wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=dm_admin_page

    It's a fixed IP I put in there

    anyway ... i know its a small bug - - but just incase someone else starts talking about broken links for Network Admin maybe they have been changing top level domains and siteurl and homeurl like me :)

    Cheers

    Damien

    Hi Mika

    it's this page in the Codex

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_Multisite

    I think I'll add a comment at the end to only change home and siteurl for sub-domains at your own risk and mention the broken http// http;// bug

  11. It would be better if you didn't even suggest it should be changed at all. People will follow that and think they have to :/
