Support » Networking WordPress » Asian Language subdomain

  • I have a multisite subdomain network. I’m trying to create a subsite with subdomains in Thai language.

    In wp-admin/network/site-new.php Add New Site is not recognizing the Thai for the subdomain name – showing error “Missing or invalid site address.” (an internationalized Thai domain name is working, just subdomain site address is not)

    I tried using the Internationalize WordPress (IntlWP) activated/enabled it but still getting site address error

    Any ideas? seems like there should be more than one plugin or approach to using Asian languages as subdomain. Thanks

    You might need http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/idna/

    Is your domain in ASCII or Punycode?

    How do you check/change whether ASCII or Punycode?

    thanks

    Well… I know about this much. When you map domains to IDNA names, you have to use PunyCode, per this comment in the Domain Mapping plugin: “International Domain Names should be in punycode format.”

    So extrapolating from that, I think that you would need to make a subdomain like this: xn--xxa.domain.com

    and that would become: μ.domain.com

    thanks for that… a world of understanding has opened up. there are a number of online tools for converting native to punycode
