Support » Plugin: Domainer » Staging sites

    What happens if the Domainer plugin is turned off? Will that make the multisite automatically revert to the original, pre-mapped domains?

    So, ideally, I’d like to run a folder-based network, resulting in subsites with URLs like If subsite gets mapped to or with Domainer, and I then turn off Domainer, will subsite revert back to

    If this is true, my thinking is that I could clone a multisite network into a staging environment, run a db search and replace for // -> //, turn off Domainer, and all the subsites should work…

    Thanks for any advice on this 🙂

    Sorry for the delay; it’s been a hell of a month.

    Disabling the plugin would turn off the link rewriting, however if you have it set to run the backend through the primary domain (e.g. instead of you’ll likely find a number of URLs in your page content (links, images, etc) using the mapped URLs. This may happen regardless if you’re using the block editor; haven’t actually tested this plugin with it but it’ll probably rewrite any URLs in the JSON responses.

    As for the staging approach, yes that would work just fine.
