"www" incorrectly being added to subdomain URLs
|Reported by:||mngreg||Owned by:|
I posted this as a question over on the WP MU forums, and "andrea_r" responded that it was apparently a bug and I should report it here. You might want to check out my original post over there.
Essentially, I just set up WP 3.0 RC1 on a new site I've been working on. I wanted users to be able to self-register their own blogs in a blog network, with each blog having its own subdomain.
When I was testing that functionality, I found that WP was automatically adding "www" to the subdomain URLs, despite being configured that it shouldn't. For example, I would go through the process of registering a new blog, and up to the very end, it would display the URL as http://test.example.com. But then, when I finalized the blog creation, in the e-mail sent to the user and in other places, WP would show the URL as http://test.www.example.com.
You can try it for yourself here:
Feel free to register a blog if you'd like.
I've configured my web host to work with wildcard DNS entries, and I've also set it up to recognize the main-level domain with both the www and not.
I'm afraid I don't know what additional details might be useful, but please feel free to ask follow-up questions, I'll keep an eye on this ticket.
