Emails use main multi-site in url instead of mapped domain

Hi, perhaps I set something wrong but I am finding that emails generated by the subscribe by email plugin contain a link to the “sub site” of my multi-site instead of the link to the mapped domain – example:

Here is a copy of what I get in the generated email from one site:

    Greetings bettereverything,

    This issue I found with the sub domain showing in the URL is directly related to which URL was used to log into the domain to make the post which is then sent to the subscribers.

    If you log into the mapped domain or TLD of the site and make the post then the email comes out using the TLD as expected. i.e. Login using

    I found through testing this also affects the permalinks created for the post made therein.

    If logged in to the sub domain permalinks and emails indicate the sub domain, if logged in using the mapped domain as indicated above the permalinks and emails indicate the mapped domain URL.

    If we can be of further assistance please let us know.

    Cheers, Joe :slight_smile:

    Cool! I can handle that – I bet the client is logging in at the original “temporary” url to do her posts. Thanks sooooooooooooooooo much for the excellent support. If anyone is looking at this site and wondering if it is worth subscribing/joining – I am here to tell you it is!

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
