Is This Correct Setup?

Hi all,

I have a wordpress multisite setup for people to register blogs/websites as subdomains (Creativ3Sites.com). I have a question regarding this plugin and it's use with one of my clients. Here is a simple walkthrough of what I am trying to accomplish.

1. I have a client who has an account with us. Their domain is theglobalbulletin.com.
2. They are wanting to have subsites of their website (i.e. map.theglobalbulletin.com, news.theglobalbulletin.com, etc.) so they can have different themes for different parts of the website.
3. I currently have domain mapping configured on Creativ3Sites.com where the client is currently hosting just theglobalbulletin.com

Is it possible, with this plugin, to allow what I have described above? Where the client can create subdomain sites of their website through my multisite network? Do they need to have their own hosting account?

What I have done so far is taken their domain hosted at GoDaddy and added a * under the A records pointing to my dedicated IP Address. I'm assuming that this will work but I am not 100% sure.

I then have the domain under the setting > multi-domains. Do I need to set this to private? I only want that client to be able to access creating sub sites of theglobalbulletin.com. If so, how do they create their own sub sites with the private or do I, as the Super Admin, have to create each of their sub sites?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi creativ3group,

    Those error messages are referencing a twitter tools plugin. You may want to deactivate that and look into any conflicts with it.

    That said, Multi-Domains wouldn't allow you to create sub-domains as such, but it would let you create sub-sites on your client's domain, within your network.

    So for example, you could have theglobalbulletin.com/map and theglobalbulletin.com/news. And these would be individual sites.

    The best method would likely be for you to create those sites as Super Admin. You could make the domain name theglobalbulletin.com available for use publicly with Multi-Domains, but that would entail that all your users would be able to create sites on that domain.

    How would that work for ya?

    Hey David,

    Thanks for the clarification, although when I went through a created a couple of test sites under the "theglobalbulletin.com" domain, it did bring them up as subdomains instead of sub sites (i.e. map.theglobalbulletin.com).

    Not sure if I messed anything up - but it is working in that way.
