[Resolved] RE: The domain mapping plugin – Network Admin link is http// not http://

  • Hi Ipstenu and other WP ppl

    I’m having a similar problem with my domain mapping … in that my link to Network Admin is http// and not http://

    I’ve used WordPress MU domain mapping for a couple of years now … The ‘one odd thing’ I had done this week was to edit the network admin > site > settings … so they changed from

    subdomain.damien.co to mapped-domain.com

    see screenshot http://awesomescreenshot.com/0ac9l9x39

    This is something that I read on Otto or Donncha blog

    This ‘screams from the roof top’ at being a user issue but I wonder if it’s an un-intended bug in domain mapping plugin or a WP Network issue?

    Cheers

    Damien

    Ooooooh no. That’s not how it works. You should never have to change those. Heck, halfelf.org still shows as tech.ipstenu.org from that screen and it’s okay.

    Can you un-do that?

    Hi Mika

    Yeh … changing that back to subdomain.domain.co fixes the issue with http//

    the link for network admin changes back to damien.co/wp-admin/network

    so there is a ‘bug’ in there somewhere … if you change the network > site ?settings domain then the Network admin link looks like http//damien.co/wp-admin/network

    Note the difference in the 2 URL’s

    Is this a WP bug or a Domain Mapping unexpected ‘feature’

    cheers

    I use domain mapping and it’s just fine, so … It’s probably your setup.

    Are you saying that if you leave the “network admin > site > settings” alone, the URL is damien.co/wp-admin/network and not http://damien.co/wp-admin/network ?

    Are you trying to domain map the top-level domain?

    Hi again

    sorry been out of town for a short break

    In answer to your question … yes if I leave “network admin > site > settings” alone, the URL is damien.co/wp-admin/network and not http://damien.co/wp-admin/network ?

    screenshot here … https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1139278/URL%20link%20damien.JPG

    so this is a small typo-bug with WordPress core I think.

    So coming back to the other WP user (and my concern) … if you change the home and site URL for a sub-site you end up with this broken link with http// and not http://

    I can’t get to dropbox (work, blocked, blah blah).

    Okay.

    Leave network admin > sites > settings alone. We call that doing_it_wrong() 😉

    It’s not a bug, you’re just doing things weirdly.

    Again: Are you trying to domain map the top-level domain?

    HI Mika

    nah — I was not trying to map my top level domain (I tried that previously and found the domain mapping plugin wouldn’t accept that).

    Checkout this tut (step 5) which *might* have been where I read up on changing network settings > sites > site url

    http://wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/wordpress-multisite-beyond-basics-essentials-and-domain-mapping/

    I’m sure there is some mention in the Codex about siteurl and homeurl for network settings – I’m going go trawl through it til I find it.

    Cheers
    Damien

    *mrph* I don’t know why tutsplus makes it so complicated.

    Did you put in your server IP or your CNAME at /wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=dm_admin_page

    It’s a fixed IP I put in there

    anyway … i know its a small bug – – but just incase someone else starts talking about broken links for Network Admin maybe they have been changing top level domains and siteurl and homeurl like me 🙂

    Cheers

    Damien

    Hi Mika

    it’s this page in the Codex

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_Multisite

    I think I’ll add a comment at the end to only change home and siteurl for sub-domains at your own risk and mention the broken http// http;// bug

    It would be better if you didn’t even suggest it should be changed at all. People will follow that and think they have to :/
