Support » Networking WordPress » Live site doubts

  • hi,
    this is my second live site under MultiSite and some questions arise, as follows:

    this site is running as a mapped subdomain, and some styles and scripts are revealing the “subdomain status” of the site
    for example:<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
    …most are WordPress core files, but AddToAny is printing his real path too

    although i have the y_key meta, Yahoo Site Explorer seems not able to check it
    …the status is “Pending” for some days now
    …and google webmaster detects it immediately

    so, instead of the meta key i thought in uploading the verification file in the root of the subdomain
    but, where is the root of a mapped subdomain??
    …i tried /blogs.dir/ID/root.txt and /blogs.dir/ID/files/root.txt, and nothing…. i know this last one couldn’t be the root, but tried anyway….

    1. That’s as expected, I believe. IF you change domain mapping via the plugin to map the admin site, it should change that to your mapped domain.

    2. Yahoo’s an idiot. If Google Works, then you’re fine.

    3. There isn’t a root subdomain, you’d have to put it in the root of the DOMAIN, which means… well, it’d be there for all sites on the network.

    1. i don’t get it… you mean to add the admin site here in this config screen?

    2. rsrsrsr

    3. sure, as with robots.txt…

    (thanks for being there, mate… you’re almost omnipresent… one wonders if should not start the threads “Dear Ipstenu…”:o)

    1. No this one —

    And sorry I mean UNcheck.

    Redirect administration pages to blog’s original domain (remote login disabled if redirect disabled) – This makes all admin pages show up on the original domain instead of on the new domains. You need this enabled for remote login to work.

    3. Exactly. What plugin are you using to put in the meta info for google and yahoo? I used the one built into WordPress SEO (by Yoast) and it seems to work.

    (hah, I don’t answer everything 😉 But I do get around)

    1. no, i don’t want to show the original domain, i should have been more explicit…
    this is my actual config:

    and this is what’s happening:
    :…4 files are being loaded outside the mapped domain, not a big issue, but would prefer it didn’t happen

    3. oh, yes, i’m using Yoast’s too

    1. Okay you did it correctly 🙂 That’s what I meant.

    Hmm. This may be by design, I’ll tag the ticket so Andrea (one of the devs of that plugin) sees it.

    The first thing I see that refers to the unmapped subdomain is the CSS for the add-to-any plugin. Try turning that one off and see if you still have references to the unmapped subdomain.

    yeah, Ron, i didn’t do the classic troubleshooting: swap theme, deactivate plugins…

    and after doing that, i have to admit that, oh, my… it is my own plugin who is doing most of the “unmapped revealing”
    – this is the responsible line: wp_enqueue_script('jquery');
    – well, i’m surely an amateur, but in this debugging process i saw that AddToAny is encoding its CSS file in the unmapped address too

    thanKs both of ya, rogue gurus!
