WordPress MU Domain Mapping is a plugin that allows the users of a WordPress MU site to use custom domains on their blogs.
It’s been a while since the last release but with the help of Ron Rennick, and many others (kgraeme – you kick ass at finding bugs!) I think the wait has been worth it. Changes since the last release:
- Works in VHOST or folder based installs now.
- Remote login added.
- Admin backend redirects to mapped domain by default but can redirect to original blog url.
- Domain redirect can be 301 or 302.
- List multiple mapped domains on site admin blogs page if mapped
- Bug fixes: set blogid of the current site’s main blog in $currentsite
- Bug fixes: cache domain maps correctly, blogid, not blog_id in $wpdb.
- and lots more bugs fixed and squashed.
There are still a few limitations however:
- Your WordPress MU site should be installed in the root of your server.
- It’s not possible to map a path on the new domain.
- You cannot map a domain on to the main blog in a folder install of WordPress MU.
Grab it from the page above, make sure you read the readme.txt as the plugin needs to be installed and configured correctly. You’ll also need to be familiar with concepts such as CNAME and A DNS records and how to configure your server correctly.
Please try it first on a test server. We have gone to extraordinary lengths to try to fix every bug we could but it’s always better to be careful when trying out new software.
