Follow the steps found in Create a Network in a new subdirectory and this tutorial by Otto should show you have to map domains using the WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin ("MU" is the legacy description of Multisite, just ignore that confusion.) It will be much easier ...

Hi @aj martin: Here's two different solutions (editing the specifics for your use case): Doing a Redirect: 1.) At the top of your /wp-config.php file add the following: if ( is_yoursite_blogger_domain( $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] ) ) { $domain = str_replace( 'www.', '', $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] ); define( 'WP_SITEURL', 'http://' . $domain ); define( ...

Multisite cannot be installed in a subdirectory of the document root currently. This will be possible in 3.5. See Multisite on Windows with wildcard subdomains for a guide how to manage subdomains automatically on Windows with XAMPP. You can move the plugin directory to another directory per wp-config.php. This is possible for themes too, but automatic ...

this is not a full answer but probably of use to gain more information about your problem. I guess it's related to cookies but that is really a guess only. To find out more I suggest a combination of two tools: One Firefox and a wordpress Add-On.

Basically, it turns out you need two dedicated IP addresses, or a third vhost. IP Address You could use two IP addresses and do something like this in your apache configuration: #IP address for WP NameVirtualHost 12.34.56.78:80 #For everything else NameVirtualHost *:80 Then, make sure the VirtualHost for WordPress is declared thus: <VirtualHost ...

On WordPress.com we have domain mapping and we have SSL but the two don't mix because we don't manage certs for mapped domains (AFAIK). We use SSL for wp-admin but not for blogs. Example: http://andyskelton.com/ https://andyskelton.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ The SSL cert is for *.wordpress.com. If you try to visit the mapped domain over SSL you should get a ...

Don't worry about changing the guid, you'll be fine if you never update that field. The main places you'll need to update are in the post_content column of wp_posts (for links and images), and in the wp_options table (for widget data). Before you do any database replacing, though, read through this thread: Easily Move a WordPress Install from Development ...

Install WordPress MU Domain MappingPlugin, and edit the wp_domain_mapping database table.

You can use a predefined constants that points to site URL. (from Codex) define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://example.com/wordpress'); define('WP_HOME', 'http://example.com/wordpress'); Small example define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']); define('WP_HOME', 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);

Install multi-site as subdomain setup. Do not use the sub-sites option. Go to Network Admin/Sites and select the site whose URL you want to change: Change the URL to the new domain. In your wp-config.php use define( 'COOKIE_DOMAIN', '' ); to be able to log in in both sites. You don't need a plugin for that.

The proper way is after pointing the new domain to your hosting account to change the URL references in the Database. So, besides the siteurl & home options you shouldn't forget upload path at the same table and a complete search & replace for local links and media URLs inside post contents. There are many ways to do this according to the Codex. ...

What I basically did was the following: Used Domain Mapping plugin in wp-config.php - Changed DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE and NOBLOGREDIRECT to $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] as per what @toscho suggested in wp-config.php - Added: define('DOMAINMAPPING_ALLOWMULTI', 'yes'); // Allow sites to have multiple domains define('SUNRISE', 'on'); // Domain mapping plugin ...

Use the plugin WordPress MU Domain Mapping. Read the installation instructions very carefully. There is also an ebook WordPress Multisite 101 where you can read more (like migration from single site installation etc.). You can activate themes per single site as usual. Or set the constant WP_DEFAULT_THEME in your wp-config.php depending on the host name: ...

This should be doable. First step would be pointing each domain to the same document root/install of WordPress. Next up, use WP_HOME and WP_SITEURL in wp-config.php that change based on $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']. Example: <?php define('WP_HOME', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']); define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . '/wp'); That ...

You could hook intop pre_comment_on_post: add_action( 'pre_comment_on_post', function(){ if ( empty ( $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] ) ) exit; }); But … be aware, not all requests without an referer are actually spam posts. Some firewalls and proxies strip this field. And most automated spam comes with a Referer field filled with the name of the ...

A simple constant WP_SITEURL could do the trick. I did worked on something similar to it. The difference is all of the domains were hosted on the same server and pointed to the root directory. The procedure i tried - Checked the host using $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] and Validated if it exist on the database. Comparing your needs, you could check this ...

If you set domain.com as an alias of original.com, in WordPress you have to do nothing to make it works. The problem is the countrary: once in DNS the 2 domains are aliases, every url of your WordPress will be accessible via user defined domains: domain.com/any/wp/url, but also domain2.com/any/wp/url, domain3.com/any/wp/url and so on... So, what you have ...

I am not entirely sure that it would work with sub-sub-domains. :) Most of your requirements (IIS aside) seem very manageable: consistent design would be easy to achieve with shared theme (or several child themes if required); users can be easily assigned to multiple sites, using single login and account (through editing site in Network Admin).

Depending on what server setup you have (operating system, http server & control panel - if you have one), the main way to go would be to have separate DNS zones for each domain (with an A record for the domain name, then MX records, NS if you want the nameservers to be linked to that specific domain, reverse lookup and other stuff), then have a virtual ...

This really has nothing to do with the theme customizer. From the Codex on moving WordPress : Existing image/media links uploaded media will refer to the old folder and must be updated with the new location. You can do this with the Velvet Blues Update URLs plugin, or with a search and replace tool, or manually in your SQL database. The values in ...
