WordPress MU Domain Mapping
Totally Different Ballpark in 3.6 Apparently (3 posts)

    Is there an easier way to map these domains? So far every tutorial I've found doesn't match up to what I'm seeing in my actual install of WordPress. I'm trying to create a multisite for a network of affiliated performers, but this seems near impossible lol.

    First, a couple of things:

    1) In WordPress 3.6, the role of SuperAdmin doesn't exist anymore (it's now called Network Admin)

    2) My settings panel under "Network Admin" has these selections:

    • Network Settings
    • Network Setup
    • Domain Mapping
    • Domains

    3) In "Domain Mapping" I have my server IP address listed, and perm redirect and user domain mapped selected

    4) In "Domains" no matter what I enter, once I save the page refreshes and no content is displayed nor a message saying anything happened

    5) I seem to have no options to set a primary domain

    6) My host is WebFaction. With this host, the website creation process is broken up into 3 sections:

    • First add the domain(s) to your account
    • Second, create an application (Static PHP/ WordPress/ Etc)
    • Finally, create a website by merging the domain with the application information

    7) I can see all of the sites I've created via "Sites>Add New" under "Sites>All Sites"

    8) The Master site is "thehivenet.com"

    9) The children (subdomains) are:

    • asiakadett.thehivenet.com
    • gabrielleswitchblade.thehivenet.com
    • paulinaramera.thehivenet.com
    • romanramera.thehivenet.com

    10) Each subdomain SEEMS to be going to it's correct multisite install, however I'm still at a loss on how this plug-in helps me to get the children:
    example.thehivenet.com
    To be accessible via their actual PURCHASED URL, AND renamed in the address bar. In this case, that would be:
    example.com

    Was my problem outlined clear enough???

    Ok so I found this article...
    http://rtcamp.com/wordpress-nginx/tutorials/multisite/domain-mappinng/
    ...and it SEEMS to have helped me. This is the only tutorial out there that actually looks exactly like my installation.

    Only thing I'm confused about is the CName thing which I'm getting help from my hosting company now.

    Super Admin refers to the user role not where you are in the dashboard. If you look in the user list in Network admin you should see Super Admin beside your Avatar.
