I did not see a solution among your current posts... One of our child sites (newengland.nfoic.net) has a URL (nefirstamendment.org) pointed to it and is recorded as such in the admin using the site ID number and with Primary site checked. I want to point another URL NEFAC.org to the site and want to know how to accomplish that. I added the site on the back-end with the same ID but cannot mark as Primary as neither site will display it. What do I need to do besides: Redirect the nefac.org A record to the multi site domain Change the DNS servers from where the nefac.org url is registered Add the nefac.org as a new site on my (cloud) host admin?

Right now we just see a Coming Soon page for nefac.org. Thank you. Daniel

Don't add more sites to point more domains to the same site. Just add more domains to the same site from this address /wp-admin/tools.php?page=domainmapping of the dashboard of the site.

You might need to disable primary domain check from this network admin page /wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=dm_admin_page if you don't want the domains to all redirect to the primary one.

For support about the domain mapping plugin, you should go here: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping
