    Neat plugin. Default permalinks will not work for this plugin. You will need to have your “pretty permalinks” configured at Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks. That way, your category names will show up.



    I have my linux hosting with Save-Solutions and I have a CPanel admin.

    I activated the plugin and already created my categories and then go to my Cpanel for setup the subdomains including the forward as following: ->$1

    I have pretty permalinks: /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%

    I see my links in the browser’s status bar are pointing to:

    When I click on it I go to:

    I want to maintain the URL with my subdomain (A). And I want to have all posts filed under category “El Salvador” slug -> “elsalvador” when I go to

    I dont get this plugin works completely.

    Help please. Thanks.

    I’m having the same issue as fafamonge. I have a page set up and everything looks great when I navigate directly to that page. If I click any links on that page it goes back to the main domain and subdomain is gone. If you happened to figure it out fafamonge…would love some help. Thanks!

    Forwarding will not work.

    When you create your subdomain and it asks for the document root of your website you need to set it to the same document root as the main wordpress install (e.g ~/public_html/).

    If your subdomain creation doesn’t ask for a document root then you should ask your technical support.

    If you forward all that does it take the page and forward you to the same page on the target address. Which is exactly what it seems to be doing.

    Here is a picture of the section where you set the document root:

    I manually created a forwarded domain and it didn’t work (yet) because I didn’t included the /category/ base in the final url. While I wait for the new forwarded domain propagates, I realized the plugin will still not work properly because it will end up showing the domain/category/categoryname/post url instead of keeping always the same subdomaintocat/domain/post structure.

    But I found the following script at

    # if requested subdomain is not "www"
    rewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(www\.)?example\.com [NC]
    # and we have not already rewritten this request to the subdomain's subfolder
    rewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} !/folder/.
    # extract requested subdomain to %2
    rewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?([^.]+)\.example\.com
    # rewrite the request to the subdomain's subfolder
    rewriterule (.*) /folder/%2/$1 [L]

    and I’ll give it a try.

    Can you help me to integrate it with the wordpress default rules?

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    This would help so many people that are pushed to upgrade their hosting package to a more expensive one.


    I’m having the problem that once on a subdomain, I can’t get back to the main domain when selecting “Home” However, the breadcrumbs option of “Home” works. I have both a page and a category with the slug blog that create this sub domain. I feel like I’m looking right past the solution.



    Once in this subdomain only selecting Home from breadcrumbs or the back button will get user back to the main home.

    Any help is appreciated. It otherwise is working great! Thanks!

    Plugin installed correctly.
    Added cathegory “obzorje”
    Added subdomain “obzorje”…

    Here (i guess) comes the problem… I am using parked domain on
    So, my primary domain is, but my add-on domain is ‘<—‘ this is the one that has wordpress installed.
    On the server it is ‘/public_html/jaya’ and not ‘/public_html’. so i wrote ‘/public_html/jaya’ for the document root.
    But it does not work:

    My guess is, there is a problem with parked domains.. ?!
    What can i do?!?

    Otherwise i like the idea of this plugin!

    Look forward to your reply, Klemen

    It works now!
    Looks like i was too fast – servers probably need a minute or two to make a subdomain ready?!?


    So did you get it to work on WP 3.0?
