Network Admin broken link http// not http:// typo if siteadmin changes siteurl of subsite

Reported by: damiensaunders's profile damiensaunders Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 3.4.1
Component: Network Admin Keywords: reporter-feedback
Focuses: multisite Cc:



  • a multisite install at configured for sub-domains
  • a subsite called "foo" at
  • a domain mapping ->
  • set as PRIMARY domain for that blog

the siteadmin changes the siteurl for that blog via Network Admin > Settings > Site

then ...
when the siteadmin visits the the menu link for Network admin is broken.

It's expected that the link looks like

but instead it is changed to


Clicking on the link resolves to a 404 page.

This maybe trivial but changing the siteurl for mapped domains / subsites is important if you need to integrate with 3rd party API like google checkout which expect qualified valid full domain.

I've noticed on the multisite forums that a few other users have complained about the network admin link being broken.

If you need screenshots please let me know

I'm able to edit a site url without any issue in Network admin in version 3.4.1.

The point of the domain mapping plugin is that it allows you to map the site to a domain without/instead of editing the site in Network admin.

If you have to edit the site url to get the domain mapped URL to work then you have something wrong in your install/configuration.

Hi there

I think the domain mapping plugin is not related to this issue (it's just my current setup). But its really hard to do this on a dev box if you can't fake all the full-domains

This is very trivial but it affects the siteadmin user experience ... if you change the siteurl for a sub-site to a fully qualified domain ... then the link to Network Admin (from that subsite) is broken as the link shows as




I've attached a screenshot for your records ... note the URL in the bottom left of the chrome status bar

If the link works for you then im happy to close this

Seems to be fine now. I changed to and all the URLs were fine.

Not that you should be changing the siteurl for a sub-site to a fully qualified domain anyway, but you CAN as of 3.8 trunk.
