Domain Mapping Admin URL

Hello guys!

This is my first post (so please be gentle :smiley:). I'm starting with my first Multisite installation and I already have some issues. This is the first one.

I'm using Domain Mapping plugin to give my customers the ability to use their own domain and it works fine. The problem is that the ADMIN URL is still based on my main domain so for example:

STANDARD CUSTOMER URL: company.expromo.pl
NEW CUSTOMER URL: company.com

STANDARD CUSTOMER ADMIN URL: company.expromo.pl/wp-admin
NEW CUSTOMER ADMIN URL: company.expromo.pl/wp-admin even if I go to company.com/wp-admin

This is very bad for me because some plugins (like Google Maps plugin) need the main URL to be the same to work (because of the Google API). Also it's very confusing for my customers and they feel like they don't have everything that they paid for.

Please help me with this.

I'm attaching a preview of what happens.

    I'm going to reopen this thread with a strong suggestion that you don;t do this. I know why folks only want to see a single domain but if something goes wrong with the clients domain, there's no way that they can access the backend of their site. That's the main reason why wp.com, when they set this up chose not to have both the front and the back be the clients domain.

    You can do this but knowing that no client is perfect and setting up 'a' records and the link isn;t something most folks off the street will have knowledge on how to do this, you may want to reconsider.

    @drmike: I'm using WPMU to give clients a full hosting experience. They can buy additional FTP access and e-mail from me but they get "the whole package".

    It's good for them - they pay less because none of my clients actually needs 10 GB of space
    It's good for me as I can manage their websites from one global panel.

    As for the issue that you wrote about - If something happens to the domain and I turn it off from the super admin in my global panel wouldn't that fix the issue?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
