As this plug-in has not been maintained actively for the past two years, I was a little concerned about whether it works or not as I installed and ran it with my WordPress blog sites.
Not so long time has passed, but for now it seems to be working fine without any big problem.
Thanks to this great plubin, I will be able to consolidate my blogs on a single server and save money and maintenance workload.
This plugin did just what I needed to map a second (different) domain name to my second WordPress 4.4.2 multisite site. The WPMUDev Domain Mapping article was a help in the process of setting this all up. I would rate this as 5-star if the process could be made any easier (although I concede that this may not be possible given limitations of what a plugin is allowed to do).
In the end, it did just what it needed to do. I did have to add two entries in Network Admin > Settings > Domains, one for "domain.com" and another for "www.domain.com" (as Primary) to get the desired result of allowing both domains while making the "www." form the preferred one.
like to use it..
On a new multisite WordPress 4.1.1, WPMU domain mapping is perfectly working.
Hi, great usefull plugin.
This is rather an advanced user plugin with need to full access on both hosting, or at least ftp, and full access on the control panel of your domain name host.
The subsite I setted up with this plugin isn't listed under 'My sites' when in the parent site.
Is this normal? A bit confusing as it is not listing there.
My best, kristof
Mapping to external domains is a great functionality for Multisite WordPress! But I would like to have this included in Multisite WordPress. For example now the version WP 4 is out and the Plugin changelog is still focused on "WordPress 3.1 compatibility", so upgrading is always a bit "risky".
Sometimes it is broken though, where the browser downloads media from original domain instead of mapped domain
Almost everything is ok. Only an issue with iThemes Security: after moving wp-content directory to another, hook domain_mapping_plugins_uri does not work anymore.
I temporarly fixed it by chang PLUGINDIR with 'new-wp-content-folder/plugins'.
Thank for that wonderfull plugin which is almost perfect.
Adding a domain with mixed-case (lower- and upper-case letters) causes a redirect loop. I'm not sure why.
Mixed-cased domains are commonly easier to read. So, I hope this can be fixed. If it cannot be fixed or until it is, the domain being added should at least be translated to lowercase.
