#13877 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

domain multisite option (as opposed to subdirectory and subdomain)

Description

I host a handful or so of different blogs for people. We want each of these blogs to be hosted on their own domain name.

Therefore, subdirectory hosting is not what we want.

subdomain hosting almost gets me there, except that I have to do a fair amount of editing to get all the URLs right in wp_3_options. But while this seems to work very well for most cases, it does not catch all the cases. For example, permalinks show the URL of the main hosting site, and not the desired domain name.

If the answer to this question is "Use the domain mapping plugin" (for 3.0), then the documentation should be updated to show how to implement this case.

I have a plugin in the WordPress.org plugin repository called "WP Multi Network" that will do exactly what you describe.

  • Milestone Unassigned deleted
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

We have agreed that this is best left to a plugin for now.

OK, then I again suggest that the documentation be updated to show this.

What is a good way to "move" existing sites to the WP Multi Network setup? The "export" function under "Tools" doesn't appear to export the theme for each site, the site name/description or other data, for example.
