WordPress MU Domain Mapping
Multiple Domains on one site, redirecting to one domain name (5 posts)

    I have this working perfectly on many of the sites in my network, but for some reason, on a few of them, I get a name redirect.
    I have mysite.com/foo and map
    If I type in foobar.com, I go to the proper page, but the url in the browser changes to foo.com.

    They are all marked as primary and the same set up is working on multiple other sites in the network. Any ideas?

    I can provide the actual urls if necessary.

    Thanks so much for the great plugin!

    You can only have one primary domain per site.

    Keeping all the domains marked primary is the only way I have been able to get the plugin to work. When I change this setting, all of the urls revert to the primary one when the site loads.

    Yes, that's the way domain mapping is designed to work, Each site has one primary domain. All other domains redirect to the primary one.

    Making your content reachable via multiple domains makes no sense for users and gives big penalties on search engines. Its called duplicate content and all your domains would be punished by lower ratings.
