Pretty Link Lite
[resolved] Pretty Link (Lite) URLs not mapped on other MU sites (5 posts)

    Hi all

    I have recently set up a new site within a WordPress MU network and aim to use Pretty Link Lite there too. The new site is supposed to be completely mapped (done with the WP MU domain mapping plugin), so the new site actually appears as newsite.com rather than mainsite.com/newsite/.

    However, on the new site Pretty Link still refers to mainsite.com/newsite/ rather than newsite.com/. I tried creating a URL with newsite.com/prettylink/ but that caused a 404.

    Is there a way to have Pretty Link show other MU sites' links mapped as well? Otherwise it does not look very professional when there are URL references back to the main site.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Hi all

    I was wondering, if anyone could give me advice on the Pretty Link Lite setup issue above? I would say that on Multisite it defeats the purpose, if Pretty Link URLs are not mapped to the newsite URL structure. But as mentioned before, there may of course be a workaround for this.

    Many thanks!

    Hello again

    Is it possible that in order to have links truncated with "Pretty Link" to appear mapped to the same domain name of a new MU network site (not the main MU site)?

    Is it possible that an upgrade to Pretty Link Pro is required? I'm just trying to figure out, if it is a setup issue or in fact linked to a product upgrade?

    Thanks again

    We haven't yet tested this with domain mapping enabled yet. I just put this into our issue tracking system and hopefully we'll have a chance to get it working soon.

    Hi supercleanse

    I actually figured it out and had something wrong with the URL - well, sort of. The thing is that when you implement Pretty Links into HTML on a mapped domain you got to keep the main site prefix. Ok, to illustrate this a little better, this is what I mean:

    Does not work (which I expected to work hence I though URLs would be mapped throughout):

    Works like this and gets mapped on publishing the page:
    mainsite.com/newsite/prettylink/ (newsite is the name you gave the subfolder domain)

    You won't see the URLs mapped on previewing the page, only once it's released.

    Hope this helps.
