Image paths of mapped MU site refer back to host site path structure
I have posted this question in the forum already, but the issue is not resolved yet. Maybe I can get some help from the makers of the plugin.
I’ll try to be brief:
– Issue: I have set up a new site in a MU network, which is mapped to a different domain name (set up as an ad on domain in Cpanel), so it looks like the new site has nothing to do with the MAIN MU site. Therefore, instead of mainblog.com/newblog it correctly displays as newblog.com.
However, images still reference back to mainblog.com/newblog/images/example.jpg instead of being mapped as well i.e. newblog/images/example.jpg
When uploading an image to newblog/images and trying to view the URL in a browser it just returns a 404. I hope there is a work around for this as it doesn’t look good for an independent site to display the image path of another domain.
– What I did initially (may help to solve the issue): a) Added a new site to a MU setup b) Mapped the new site with the WP MU Domain Mapping plugin c) Set the new site up as an add on domain in Cpanel.
For your information, I checked the first 4 options in the WP MU Domain Mapping plugin in the super admin configuration.
So, the bottom line is, the actually domain has been mapped, but images still include the path of the host domain. In addition, when checking out the new site on a mobile device, it does not load it up. Instead it redirects back to the original MU host site – not the new one.
Hope someone can give me a hand. Many thanks in advance!!
