BUG: Domain Mapping VERSION does not allow network domain to be IP address

This really F'd me for a day unknowingly and needs to be addressed asap.

If you have your network domain be an IP...all mapped domain links are...F#$#'d

It F'd me really really good.

Having an IP address as the network domain in VERSION had no issues.

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks a lot for reporting. However, I'm not sure about two things. You said "all mapped domain links are...F#$#'d". First thing, is you mapped domain also an IP or a real domain? From your description, I assume mapped domains are TLD, but still I need to make sure as this is a complex setup. Second thing, what links are showing like those? I mean where can I see those weird links? Any link on those mapped subsites? Like menu links, date time, author links etc.? Can you please confirm?

    I'll run test on my test server as soon as you confirm. And if I can regenerate the same, I'll report to our developer right away.

    I'm looking forward to hear from you and resolve this issue as soon as possible.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!

    Network IP is: 933.939.939.33

    933.939.939.33/subblog had the domain mapping activated with http://www.subblog.com as the mapped domain as well as https://www.subblog.com available to it.

    So to manage the network plugins I would access via:


    Previous version had no issue with this setup. I reverted back to previous version and things work. So the bug was introduced in the new version.

    Hi Ben,

    I'm so sorry for the delayed reply. We will try to make sure that this type of delay doesn't happen again.

    Now regarding this issue, I just tested the whole setup in my test site but I could not regenerate this with latest version of Domain Mapping. I created an IP bases sub-directory multisite, then mapped one TLD to a subsite. Then I checked that subsite with mapped domain but I could not see any anomalies in links.

    So I don't think this is a bug, but probably something is conflicting with the latest version of Domain Mapping in your site. So this is your network specific issue.

    To confirm this fact, can you please create another IP based test network site and try to regenerate the same issue there? If you can regenerate this issue there also, then we will check that network and do investigation. It would be better if you could create that test network on a live server so we could make some tests there to find out the reason.

    Please let us know what you suggest. I'm looking forward to hear from you and resolve this issue as soon as possible.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
