[resolved] new sites populated with theme, posts and pages from primary site. (3 posts)

    I activated wordpress MU on my primary domain gnarlyinc.com fine. However when I create a new site, it gets populated with the Gnarlyinc Template, and populated with posts and pages from gnarlyinc.com. I can not access the dashboard for the new sites, but always get

    No Update Required Your WordPress database is already up-to-date!

    I have tried a fresh install of wordpress as well. And to attempt the site to force new sites to use a different theme I added

    define('WP_DEFAULT_THEME', 'twentyelven');
    to my wp.config.

    Any ideas what might be causing this? Please help me solve the issue.

  2. Getting populated with posts is not the same as a default theme.

    What plugins are you using?

    it was two issues. I now have it resolved. If anyone was curious or has the same issue, here is the solution.

    When I created the wildcard subdomain I added /gnarlayinc.com to the document root after /puplic_html/ as instructed by a lynda.com video. When I removed the /gnarlyinc.com everything works fine. The additional /gnarlyinc.com on the document root was forcing the wild cards to a previous install I had of the site.

    Everything works now, but I am not sure why the lynda video told me to add the extra directory to the document root.
