    Where is this located?

    Referring to Otto's explanation at http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-multisite-domain-mapping-tutorial/

    I am very confused. I got through Step 3 and left only 2 and 3 checked (even though there are 5 options that I have, not 4).

    Step 4: Mapping the Domain makes no sense to me whatsoever. I cannot find anywhere in the site anything that resembles the image shown above (http://ottopress.com/files/2010/06/domainmapping5.png).

    I want users to be able to use their own domain names, what's more important; to make sure they are using the correct IP or a CNAME. I must be a total idiot because this part makes no sense to me.

    It took me a bit to figure out where Step 4 is now located... if you go into the admin area of the subdomain in question, you should find it under this link: subdomain.yoursite.com/wp-admin/tools.php?page=domainmapping&updated=primary

    I'm still trying to make this plugin work on my site since yesterday, so can't help with the other Qs, sorry.

    Anyone got any idea, why my long, detalied answer to this question has been deleted by someone? I spent over a half hour explaining everything to the asker and now it is lost! :|

    I have a copy of this, but won't put it here again, if there is someone who don't like it and is willing to delete my perfectly legitime answer.

    Hey trejder,
    I would say the obvious answer is that Otto didn't like you pointing out his failings and because he is on such a power trip, he took your post down.

    Well... I don't know if Otto himself or someone else did delete my post. But, whoever did it, must strongly misunderstood reasons for which he got moderator or adminstrator rights. As far as I know these rights are not for deleting perfectly correct answer, just because someone got a bad day.

    Any reasonable person understands that two and a half year old post must be outdated. That's quite a long time in IT area. There was a 3.0 release candidate version of WordPress at a time, Otto wrote his guide. Now, we have 3.4.2. Of course it is much easier to delete someone's post than to update own blog. The funny thing is, that I haven't wrote much criticism aganist his post. Actually I was more critic to people, who follows his guide, not seeing that it is a bit outdated.

    Anyway, if you still have problems with WordPress and wasn't unable to read my reply, contact me privately via PM and I'll send you copy of my resolution. Cheers.

    All of the moderators have the permissions to remove posts. Everyone who answers threads here does so as a volunteer. Having said that, I did not see your post so I don't know why it might have been removed.

    moderators can see ghosts of deleted posts. I cannot see any indication of any deleted posts on this topic.
