Search for Mapped Domains in Multisite (6 posts)

    Hello everyone.
    Our site has over 4,500 sites on our MS installation. We are using Domain mapping. The problem is that when you go to /network/sites.php, and you use the search bar up top, it only returns sites using the subdomain name. So if I have a site called test.mydomain.com and it is mapped to testing123.com, I can only get a result if I type in "test", which will return test.mydomain.com. There is a column that says "Mapping" and it shows the testing123.com domain mapped to the test.mydomain.com, but if you type "testing123" in the search, you'll get no results back.

    Is there a way, using a plugin, that I can make the search on /network/sites.php show the mapped domain result as if I typed in the actual subdomain? I can't seem to hook in the domain into the search results and get anything back. Thank you in advance!

  2. Not at this time, no.

    hmmm.. I figured it wouldn't be possible. Is there a way with core modification to do this?

  4. Never ever EVER modify core unless you're bugfixing or devin'g for core development. Ever. EVER.


    I'm serious. That way lies insanity, especially since WP 3.7 has auto-upgrades for minor releases. You may find your changes lost and have zero sympathy from us.

    I would suggest if you plan on using 'testing123.com' as the domain, make the subdomain testing123.domain.com

    (FWIW, handling mapping like this 'better' is on the long term plan for Multisite, see http://make.wordpress.org/core/2013/10/06/potential-roadmap-for-multisite/ for the long post)

    This is a corporate site, so we disabled any updates. We are currently on 3.5.1, and are probably going to stay on it for at least a year before our next big upgrade. I would hate to modify any core files, everything we have done is modified through plugins. But if that's the only way to make this work, it would be our only choice =/

  6. As one who has an internal, corp WP site that is on an old version of WP, editing core there is worse, because it's YEARS before someone updates, and they never document what was done well enough. Took us weeks to unravel it all :/ I ended up running a diff to track it down.

    This page has a search on it: /wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=dm_domains_admin

    Does that work?
