[resolved] "My Sites" menu not working (8 posts)

    Hi, First time poster here:
    I run a small nonprofit, and I'm trying to make WordPress work for us. I have an existing site, http://www.clarendon.org. I decided I needed to make it into a Multipress site so the various special events we organize could have their own pages and themes. My problem:

    I built a test site with a domain I own, turned on Multisite, and got it going as a subdirectory site, which is what I want. It behaves as I expect. Then I tried the same thing with my real site. I know it is older than 30 days old, so it tried to install as subdomains. That's not what I want, and it didn't work anyway, event though I turned on the subdomain wildcards. So I stripped out all of the code I added in the wp-config.php file, and the htaccess file, to return my site to a pre-multisite intstall condition. Site was ok at that point.

    I then reinstalled multisite, with define( 'SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false); and the htaccess stuff, and it sort of works, and it sort of doesn't. Main site looks fine. Newly created sites exist--I can see them as brand new sites when I visit them--but, based on my test site, I also expect to see those sites appear under the "My Sites" tab on the dashboard. They don't.

    I can navigate the long way around the block to get to these sites and manage them, but that's not what I want. Why don't the new sites I create appear under the My Sites tab? How can I fix it?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

  2. You have to fix your .htaccess :)


    What you did was right, though, changing the define :)

    I have exactly the same problem,

    Mika, I've pasted the code in the link but it doesn't solve the problem.

  4. demirkolmustafa - Make your own topic please (there is a reason for this).

    If possible, give us a link to your site, tell us if you're using subdomains or subfolders (and if you did what the OP did and switch from one to the other).

    Ok I found the problem, the sites which I'm not listed as admin doesn't show in the admin panel. I've added myself as admin, now I can see them.

    Actually, it didn't work, so I'm on to plan B.

  7. Are you the adminon those new sites, IwoanX?

    Yes I am, but plan B didn't work either. I'm now trying to restore the sites from my backup.
