Multiple Subdomains on the same wordpress Installation

Hi,
I have wordpress multisite installed and am trying to figure out how I can create subdomains under the main super admin installation.

I know if I go to "add a new site" it allows me to create a new subdomain but then it also creates a whole other wordpress dashboard and admin area. I would like to set it up in a way that it doesn't create a whole new directory/installation but uses the main super admin installation.

How is this done?

I have searched throughout some plugins and came across this one but not sure if it would work, it seems like it hasn't been updated in a while. https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-subdomains/

Thank you!

    Hello Gregwpmudev,

    I know if I go to "add a new site" it allows me to create a new subdomain but then it also creates a whole other wordpress dashboard and admin area. I would like to set it up in a way that it doesn't create a whole new directory/installation but uses the main super admin installation.

    But this is how the Multisite works - you are creating subsites that are like little separate WordPresses on the same Network. It cannot be configured differently.

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-subdomains/

    This plugin works on single installation - it allows you to have pages, categories under the subdomains (you will still need to create those subbdomains in your cpanel and point to your root folder when your WordPress is installed).
    So when you on single installation create page "contact" it by default has url mysite.com/contact - with this plugin this page can have url contact.mysite.com and still be just a normal page in WordPress.
    But I found plugin that does the same thing and its updated https://webostock.com/market-item/wordpress-page-as-subdomain-pro/8860/

    kind regards,
