    Hi everyone,

    I previously managed to create a second site within a multisite network.

    In my main site (mainsite.com) the dashboard and the site itself work ok.

    In the first different site i created (second-site.com) the dashboard and the site itself work also well.

    But in the third different site i am trying to create (third-site.com) i’m having this problem:

    The dashboard shows mainsite instead of thirdsite on the admin bar as the name of the site i’m working on (no matter it seems i’m inside the thirdside’s dashboard as i should and no matter the address bar proves so too).

    Even more, whenever i try to visit thirdsite it takes me directly into mainsite.

    So indeed i have two “mainsites” (the real main one and the third) no matter i configured the settings of each in order to have three domains mapped within the network.

    Does anyone have any clues on how i may solve this please?

  • Are you mapping domains? It sounds like you did the DNS half, but not the part in your network admin where you need to actually map the domain.

    Hi Ipstenu,

    I am sorry, i was not able to post yesterday even if i tried. Indeed the problem was i previously created several sites which i later deleted…

    So during the mapping my site number 2 was not number 2 but number 10 indeed.

    This because blogs.dir keeps the record for each of the previous sites (2, 3, 4…) no matter i delete them in admin.

    So during the mapping, even if i have only 2 sites in admin, i was supposed to type number 10 in the site ID field and not 2 – because this was my 10th site “creation”.

    There’s no more problem, but thanks for your help!

    I wrote a handy mu-plugin that’ll show you what the ID is: http://halfelf.org/hacks/site-id-columns-multisite/

    Wow (as usual for everything dealing with WordPress for newbies like me), this is amazing, thanks a lot!

    Once i got it about the site ids, i was amazed there was no column indicating each site’s id in original admin… But now my admin does, thanks again!
