WordPress MU Domain Mapping Plugin Review
By , for WP 4.4.2

I've been using WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin along with the Add Clone Sites for WPMU (batch) plugin (updated 4 years ago) for several years (at least 3 years).

I have 8 installs of the above two plugins running about 80 domains between them, so if this broke I'd be in big trouble.

Even though these two plugins aren't updated on a regular basis I've had no issues as I've upgraded through various versions of WordPress (a lot of major WordPress updates).

It's a bit of a pain to setup, domain mapping isn't a simple process, but when setup it works well. Rather than updating 80 sites one at a time I update 8 domain mapped installs, saves me LOADS of time.

Well deserving of a 5 star review.

Hasn't been update in over a year and still works perfectly.
Great job :-D

This plugin should be a part of core when using Multisite.

It works as I expected.


Not Supported Plugin

Switching to Mercator by humanmade fixed my issue and I have not seen any issue with it since this post. I agree that most people on a host with old software can use this plugin. Anyone running lastest version of PHP and WordPress should consider other options.

A bit tricky to use but it does the job!

In my setup, (WP 4.3.1 on IIS 7) I had to define a dummy domain prior to defining the domain I wanted.

My main site was, say, foo.mydomain.gr. To define a second site, say, moo.abc.mydomain.gr on the same WP installation, I had to define the domain moo.foo.mydomain.gr first, do the mapping and then change the name to moo.abc.mydomain.gr. This happened because the form adds foo.mydomain.gr as suffix to the new domain name.

This is not documented and I had a trial-and-error situation until I managed to do what I wanted.

it's worked perfectly for years!

I think there was a small issue which was rolled back about a year ago, but otherwise, this plugin serves it's purpose very well.

There is only one VERY small issue that needs addressing is the hard limit of showing 20 domain redirections in the admin panel. This took some time to work out as you apparently make maps that don't appear (but do work as they are entered into the DB, just not displayed). This is easily fixed editing line 192 of the source, just remember to do it again after an upgrade :)

But that's not worth taking a star off for. I'd debate on giving it 4.5, but half stars can't be applied by us. So 5 stars it is! :D

Excellent Plugin

This plugin is a must have for anyone using a wordpress multisite. I just hope the author keeps it updated so we can continue using it for a long time to come.
