    Hi, I'm working on a network installation but when I try to create a new site I get the message :Missing or invalid site address.
    I'm using a sub domain as the url address:http://www.ex-jefa.com/bilingual.ex-jefa.com and the domain name is http:www.ex-jefa.com.

    The idea is to have 2 blog pages and the recommendation of someone in the forum was to create a network. Please help.


  2. http://www.ex-jefa.com/bilingual.ex-jefa.com isn't a valid subdomain.

    http://bilingual.ex-jefa.com would be.

    You understand that these will be separate blogs?

    Thanks for your reply. Now I have an installation with the url http://bilingual.ex-jefa.com but I'm getting the same message. I understand they will be 2 blogs and I guess that's what I need in order to have a bilingual network...I have been reading a lot in the help section and the advice for having more than one blog is to have more than one installation...but I can't get them to work...
    Why I still getting the same message:missmg or invalid site name?

    Hola, what I'm trying to do is to add the site to the network. The domain is ex-jefa.com and a sub-domain call http://bilingual.ex-jefa.com/...when I try to add the bilingual...site to my network i still get the message -missing or invalid site name.
    I remove the dot(.) and the - but still not working. They don't want to talk!

  5. I don't understand what you mean.

    Did you make that subdomain a totally separate install?

    Hi, I'm going to start from the beginning:

    1- ask for help in the forum on how to have more than one blog in my website
    2- got a reply suggesting the creation of a network. I read a lot of stuff and follow the instructions and created a network
    3-went to my host c-panel and created two sub-domains - one using a wildcard * and the other bilingual...com. I couldn't use the wildcard sub-domain- it didn't work either.
    4-created another installation using the bilingual...com sub-domain. The installation is working fine but I can't add it to my network because of the message :missing or invalid site"

    I made another installation because what I understood from what I read I needed another installation if I wanted to have more than one blog in my website.
    I hope this can clarify my help request. thanks.

  7. created another installation using the bilingual...com sub-domain

    Okay right there is where you stopped making Multisite and started making two separate sites.

    Delete that second installation AND your subdomain.

    Go back to your cpanel and re-create the subdomain, however this time pay extra close attention to where it's pointing. By default, a subdomain points to it's own folder (often /public_html/subdomain/) but you want to point it to just /public_html/ :)

    Thanks a lot for your reply on Sunday! I did what you suggested:
    delete the sub-domain and delete the second installation I created.Then created the sub domain point to /public_html/. Now, how do i get my second blog page...I still missing something I'm not doing...

    I went back to reading:(

  9. Now you go into your mainsite, ex-jefa.com/wp-admin/network , and add the site :)

    ...well this is embarrassing... I still can't create the new site in the network. I created a trouble ticket asking my host company if there's something wrong with the subdomain, etc. to see if I finally get rid of the missing or invalid site message...


    ps., Ipstenu, you are great and very patient, thanks!

  11. What error are you geeting now?
