I think I have lost my mind!
I am using wp 3.1.3 and Domain Mapping plugin - and have been for, since 3.0 was in beta and it works great!
well till this week...
this is not a public network... just my own personal blogs. I have about 30 installed and a few days ago registered two new domain names.
I followed my usual steps to add to my network.. and um trouble in paradise!
when I click update network it runs fine - till it hits the new URL then I get this error
Error message: A valid URL was not provided.
I follow the same steps each time - so not sure why I am getting errors now :(
1- I register domain name and point to my host (Phatservers)
2- I log onto admin on host and create an alias pointing to main domain
point newsite.com --> mainsite.com
3- Under Network admin I click add a new site enter site address as: newsite - so it becomes newsite.mainsite.com
4-then I click sites- and find the newest one and click edit... and change the domain name to: newsite.com and tick Update siteurl and home as well. and save changes
5-then under tools - go to domains and enter a site ID and under domain type newsite.com and tick primary
did i suddenly forget myself and miss a step?
result now is network update errors
under network admin when I click on sites - and click on edit site
Update siteurl and home as well. does not stay checked?
when I type newsite.com into a browser it redirects to mainsite.com
and in site admin under my sites the name shows blank
I use A-Records not cname
nothing else has really changed - a few recent minor updates that did not seem to make an issues
