White page after deprecated function
By ,

Worked just fine for 4 years and yesterday started the nightmare.
To do it short : I had to fix the wpdb::escape() deprecated function__ok so I had an other error : get_current_site name, fixed too. And when I thought everything was ok, guess what ?
My main site is a white page
My 3 others sites just display home page, all the other pages display 404 error...
What to say, haunted forums all night, (I have to deliver a site in less than 10 days), harassed my FAI that sent me back to wp forums and for now still looking for a solution, I feel depited and desperate ! Any fix ?

Works as expected
By , for WP 4.4.2

Followed the installation instructions, everything worked just fine. It only issued a notice: Notice: Undefined index: action in .../domain_mapping.php on line 632 because there's no check for $_GET['action'] to see if it's set. Other than this, everything looks good, thank you.

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.

Should be a part of core
By , for WP 4.4

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.

Thanks.

A bit tricky to use but it does the job!
By , for WP 4.3.1

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
