    I've installed multisite and everything seems to be working fine, I just have a few questions however and wondered if anyone would be able to answer them for me. I've created another site as a subdomain and is working fine and I can edit it etc. what i'm wondering is if you can actually log in to the wp-admin of that site or it can only be controlled from the network admin screen?

    The reason I ask is because the sites I am making are a replica of the existing one but only a small amount of information will change on each one (e.g price in US$ instead of GBP), i've exported the old site as an XML file but when I try to log in to the new site to get to the dashboard it won't let me log in with the credentials I have set.

    I'm going to http://www.newsite.com/wp-admin and the admin screen comes up but just doesn't let me sign in. If anyone has any idea on why this is happening and could get back to me it would be greatly appreciated.


  2. You can log in to the new site via wp-admin

    You said it's a subdomain, though, and then the example URL you have was newsite.com.... You ARE going to newsite.example.com/wp-admin, right?

    Yeah I've used a subdomain install, but I've changed the link to a .co.uk so it's http://www.newsite.co.uk. I have installed the relevant domain mapping plugin and everything seemed to be working fine and I could sign in. However, as I came to sign in again this morning it won't let me resign in.

    Hmm, I'll see if I can figure out what the issue is, in the mean time if anyone knows of anything could you let me know.


  4. Well that's your problem. Generally speaking, the SECOND you say "I did that BUT..." that's when you messed up :)

    The issue is you changed the site's name the wrong way. You need to revert that to newsite.example.com and DO NOT change it.

    Then you use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/ to map newsite.co.uk to newsite.example.com
