Support » Networking WordPress » Redirection into a Multisite

  • Resolved PetLvr


    I’ve got two domains .. let’s say is where the site is and let’s say is just a registered domain.

    What I normally do … is I would go into my cPanel of and add as parked domains the

    So, when I typed in the URL .. it doesn’t redirect to .. but instead operates the as So, pages like etc all work no problem.

    (example… is a parked domain for and will continue to work for all pages until a new link is clicked and then revert back to the .com URL). I’ve been doing this for a while now (the .net, .org, etc TLD’s to my larger domains) and don’t even know if this is the best way, although my host provider suggested it and it works.

    Now – I come to do the same on – which is a 3.0.1 multisite … and when you type in .. it gives me this URL instead…
    > and an error message because I have my network options to deactivate registration.

    Any ideas how I can get this to work?

  • that technique would work on the member blogs with the domain mapping plugin, but – as you can see – not the main blog.

    that “error” basically means it’s trying to look up a non-exisiting blog in the database. there’s no record for that domain, so it flips to the signup page.

    You can put in
    define( ‘NOBLOGREDIRECT’, ‘’ );
    in the wp-config.php file.

    Thanks Andrea.

    I tried that inclusion last night, but didn’t include the http:// for some reason and I was getting this error message:

    The page isn’t redirecting properly
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
    * This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to

    Try Again

    But, then I tried it again after reading your reply WITH the http:// and it’s working fine!

    It’s odd because there is a line in there also without the http://
    define( ‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’ );

    All’s well that ends well 🙂

    Take care

    It’s odd because there is a line in there also without the http://
    define( ‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘’ );

    Different command tho. 😉
