DOMAIN MAPPING PLUGIN UPDATE changed Mapped domain schema?

After the last update of Domain Mapping ( version ) the most of the domains reverted from HTTPS to HTTP caused a redirect loop in the admin login page.

Checking the Domain Mapping settings, the schema was changed from HTTPS to HTTP.

    I’m seeing a similar redirect loop issue.

    It typically happens after logging in, viewing the front of site, going into something like the Customizer, back to the dashboard, then back to front of site. The redirects tends to occur on the front of site while trying to load the admin bar. The issue persists even after reverting back to the past version.

    Thank you for reporting this issue. Can you try to enable the "force https" option under "Mapping options" from "Domain Mapping" setting. There is actually another option for the admin and login, you can also enable them as well.

    Please let us know if that solves the issue.

    I had already solved this issue by simply changing the name of the mapped domain back to the HTTPS version. The fix wasn’t hard. The big problem is why it occurred in the first place. All domains were properly entered as HTTPS originally, and for a plugin update to change that is extremely unwelcome. It could have led to big problems for some clients, and therefore to me, if it hadn’t been caught quickly.

    Hello William Kowalski,

    Glad you were able to fix it! And we really sorry for the problem this update have caused you.

    I cannot really give you the cause for you site specifically as I was not able to replicate it on my own but, there a few rare case where an update might show some unexpected behavior – rare case because all updates are tested before release to avoid such problem. One cause might be a conflict with some other plugins or site configuration.

    We truly appreciate you pointed that out! If we notice any similar update issue with the “Domain Mapping” plugin, we will alert our developers for a quick fix.

    Kind regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.
