With Multi-Networks (they’re simple and work fine), comes a demand to Multi-Domain Plugin to work within Sub-Directory Multisite Installs. Why?
Multi-Network is Domain Mapping and child-sites management under multiple domains. This means you can easily “move” any child-site from any child-network to any other without any suffering: they’re in the same DB!
So the 2nd Multisite under a Multi-Network gets BlogID 2, and so on (as usual the main Multisite will have BlogID 1). The difference is that Multisites under a Multi-Network don’t appear as Child-Sites but as Networks on the Admin Panel.
And the best: each Child-Multisite can have its own Child-Sites branch under its own domain! Then Multi-Newtork would be fantastic!
Please check, this will be my Multi-Network Setup:
.cloud –> main site with Membership, Pro Sites Plan choosing… (BlogID1)
.support –> this will be our support system domain and website (BlogID2)
.me/your-blog/ –> blog customers (BlogID3)
.press/your-site/ –> website customers (BlogID4)
.store/your-store/ –> e-commerce customers (BlogID5)
.academy/your-elearning/ –> e-learning customers (BlogID6)
.training/your-coaching/ –> coaches offering bookings (BlogID7)
.host/your-host/ –> hosting & reseller services (BlogID8)
I would like to use Multi-Domain on my Multi-Network, because my Customers would be able to choose under what domain they want their install to be. But on first line of the usage at Multi-Domain Plugin Page, it says it is NOT compatible with sub-directory Multisites.
The question is that Sub-Domain Multiisite add a huge complexity layer, not only the domain mapping but much more for SSL certificates to work. With a single domain SSL I can guarantee SSL access to all the child-sites under a Network on my Multi-Network if they are using Sub-Directories, but not if they’re under a Sub-Domains Multisite Install…
Does it make sense for you?
So, could be possible to add Sub-Directory option to make Multi-Domain to work with them? This would be another awesome feature!
Thank you again for your time, patience and support!
