    So, with the kind help of Kimberly and some voodo-magic I got the domain-mapping plugin up and running. Thanks Kimberly! 🙂

    Firstly, I wish I could map two or more domains to a subsite (example.org, example.biz -> example.com/company) but Domain Mapping seems not to be developed for this purpose.

    Anyhow, I can now confirm DMS 1.3 on WP 3.4.2 is working with Domain Mapping 3.0.8!

    Say Domain Mapping redirects example.org -> example.com/company. There you can map example.org with DMS to a Page – which does work.

    tbh, I can’t see the purpose of this, as you could just set the homepage to a static page, which would achieve exactly the same with default WP functionality.

    Or did I get anything wrong here?

    I will look into the compatibility with Multi Domains and will hopefully release a new version.

    I saw a plugin that allows you to map any domain to any page on your site. So effectively you could map more than one domain to the site but the url would not stay consistent as you clicked around.

    Hey deniaz.

    I think people wanted this is they want to have multiple drop pages perhaps, a good way to use up extra domains?

    Anyway, you can map multiple domains with WPMUDEVs plugin, just not by default:

    domain-mapping.php line 31

    You can uncomment this:

    define('DOMAINMAPPING_ALLOWMULTI', 'yes');

    Or you can put it in your wp-config.php and that will allow each site to have multiple domains mapped. This would mean if you add 3 domains then the site will work on those 3 I believe, so now 301 or similar. With that in mind Google may see it as duplicated content on different domains.

    Is that what you were looking for?

    Take care.

    What I would like for the Domain Mapping system to accomplish is that each of the following domains could be mapped to different PAGES or POSTS on the same subsite rather than all of the domains being mapped to the same subsite as currently happens with Domain Mapping.

    The primary susbsite is:
    http://wmdk.soobahkdo.org

    Domains mapped to the subsite are:
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.biz
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.cc
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.com
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.info
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.mobi
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.name
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.net
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.org
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.us
    http://www.worldmoodukkwan.ws

    I would prefer that the domain mapping system allow us to map each of these to different PAGES or POSTS on the same subsite.

    Right now on our multisite network, we could map each of these domains to individual subsites, but it is often overkill to configure an entire subsite per domain, when all we really need to appear at a domain is a single landing page or post.

    Thanks!

    I just wanted to comment that I would really love to have this functionality as well.

    I want my clients to be able to use their own domain name for their home page, but also be able to use additional domain names for other pages (which will be niche landing pages) so they can use the domains in their offline marketing efforts (signs, newspaper ads, etc.). I want them to be able to handle the domain mapping without my involvement (such as changing vhost settings). I like that the WPMUdev plugin uses A records, which is something the client can handle.

    Hi Soo,

    So I’ve tried that.

    On my MU-Playground I’ve created a new Subsite and User “panda” and used the Domain Mapping Plugin to point panda.com, panda.org, panda.net and panda.info to the subsite mu-playground.com/panda. Then I’ve created two WP Pages “Panda Info” and “Panda Net”. In the DMS Options I mapped panda.info to the page “Panda Info” and panda.net to “Pande Net”.

    This works very well for me. Requesting panda.com and panda.org serves me the Subsite-Homepage, panda.info the Info-Page and panda.net the “Panda net”-Page.

    If this is not what you want, I’m sure if I understand your needs correctly 🙂

    Summary:
    Domain Mapping maps panda.com, panda.org, panda.info and panda.net to the Panda-Subsite

    DMS then maps panda.net and panda.info to their respective WP Pages, but doesn’t touch panda.com and panda.org.

    Regards,
    Rob

    Actually, that’s exactly what I was trying to do but it didn’t seem to work when I tried it. I just tried it again and it worked perfectly. So I don’t have any idea why it didn’t work the first time, but now it does appear to be working perfectly. That’s awesome!

    SooBahkDo,

    I guess your questions has been answered now, right? 🙂
    Can I mark the issue as resolved?

    Its almost there, but not quite. Here’s a usage scenario where its not working:

    Multisite Network is created at mu-playground.com

    The domain fish-playground.com should point to page mu-playground.com/fish/

    When I add the domain fish-playground.com into the Domain Mapping plugin, mu-playground.com redirects to fish-playground.com.

    When I add the redirect rule into DMS plugin, then the sites get stuck in a redirect loop.

    … Not sure what steps to take next. But really, the thread is nearly resolved.
