Domain Mapping By Default

Any clues on this guys..

I want to make domain mapping compulsory for every blog a user creates. I also want users to be able to create additional blogs (also mapped by default) from inside their dashboard... Zoinks..!

How i see this working is in the registration process: user name = master blog name. At least 1 Domain mapped during registration by default.

Master blog then obviously points to the first mapped domain.

Reason being is i want to place our PPC ads on the themes within my MU and share the revenue and I dont want a bunch of spam/scam chancers obliterating it with fraud.

Any ideas guys??

Im not so worried about DNS wildcard hosting or a domain control panel plugin as im sure i can work this out (eventually) :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance

    Am i guessing this is a little complicated? Although I have seen plugins that affect the registration process - so with a hack of donnacha's domain mapping plugin to make it a default and added to the registration page I think it should work.. :slight_smile:

    I'm no professional but I did this myself. It's not the hardest thing in the world.

    I have a form to create a blog (site). They hit "Create A Site" button. They enter a domain name, the title of the blog and choose a theme (using NEW BLOG TEMPLATES plugin).

    In my custom plugin, it automatically creates a record in domain mapping plugin tables with the new domain name and blog_id. It them automatically parks the domain name on my cPanel.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
