WordPress MU Domain Mapping
Changing site settings vs mapping (5 posts)

    I am using the plugin fine, although there is a lot of weird activity that may be an issue with my server; I haven't optimized it, and I think I am having caching errors that make the mapping do odd things, like login page reload loops, and having different login states for different domains.

    I was poking around and saw that I could change the home and site-url, as well as a bunch of other places where the domain shows up, on the network site list.

    I've spent a lot of time going through the threads here, and I can't quite get a grasp on a best practice here. If I can change the URL by editing the site settings, do I need the mapping? My network is a small collection of sites, each of which have a single domain pointing at it (A record pointed at IP address).

    Is there a reason I should use the Domain Mapping plugin? I can easily set all these up manually, as they are migrated in.

    Do not edit the siteurl and home on the sub-sites if you want them to continue to work correctly.

    Why is that?

    So far it is working fine, so what is the concern? At which point does it break? During an upgrade?

    I need help with this, because the site that I changed the siteurl on is the only one that will keep me logged in on the primary domain. The others redirect to the original site URL, but when I go to the primary domain set for it, I am not logged in (no admin bar nor edit buttons on posts).

    The main site works fine. Of the five options, I have 1 thru 4 checked.

    Please tell me what changing the siteurl is going to stop working, and also pointers on how to fix the login issue.
