WordPress MultiSite/Network SiteURL error

Reported by: professor44 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.3.1
Component: Network Admin Keywords: reporter-feedback
Focuses: multisite Cc:


In the Network Admin -> Sites -> Edit Sites -> Info
Domain is set to: swordstudios.net
Path is set to: /helpdawson/

I am using Domain Mapping to mask this site with http://helpdawson.com however I wanted the admin and location of files to be http://helpdawson.com/wp-admin and /files... not http://swordstudios.net/helpdawson/wp-admin

I changed the Domain to helpdawson.com and removed everything from the path and checked off "Update siteurl and home as well."

When I hit submit the Domain field in the Info tab was correctly set to helpdawson.com but the site was redirecting to comhelpdawson. which obviously returned an error. When I went to Edit Site -> Settings I saw that the siteurul and home were set to http://comhelpdawson/

I changed everything back to the swordstudios.net/helpdawson and did the whole process over again and was able to duplicate the problem.

I think this is more appropriate to the Support forums.

If you're using the Domain Mapping plugin, it dynamically does that for you. You shouldn't be (and don't have to) mess with siteURLs etc on the backend. Just map the domain, install the plugin, check the box to redirect wp-admin to mappeddomain.com and off you go.


I have halfelf.org mapped like that and I use halfelf.org/wp-admin just fine.

ETA - Also you need to use a trailing slash (Thanks, Ron!)
