Re: WPMUG Domain Mapping plugin. https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/domain-mapping/
Where can I find release notes and compatibility notices of your domain mapping plugin with the latest version of Wordpress ?
Wordpress.org does a fine job at scaring people away from using WP MU by stating
Compatible up to: 4.0.12
Last Updated: 2 years ago
You would normally understand being on WP 4.6 to say away from WP MU as being last updated two years ago and being incompatible with the latest version of Wordpress.
However back to WPMUDEV Domain Mapping. Since what I am debating is the value of subscribing and making use of the plugin.
My biggest other grief is my partial success with mapping domain names to subdomain sites using the WP Multi-Network v1.8.1 plugin. It is UBER-undocumented. I do not need per se multi-network at this time. I'd rather be on a well supported multisite environment with properly supported domain mapping capabilities and it also seems Wordpress.org (especially JJJ) is scaring people away from using Domain Mapping in favour of his undocumented Multi-Network. For instance, just trying to understand how to create a Super Admin user over a 'Network Admin' user is really hard. How do heck am I supposed to do this ?
So my question regarding WPMUDEV. Do you need to have WP Multi Network installed in order to have a functional Multisite with Domain Mapping ? I guess not. But if you do have WP Multi Network installed as well as Multisite as well as WPMUDEV Domain Mapping, what is the role of the WP Multi Network inherent 'Domain Mapping'-to-network capability ?
Finally, what pisses me the most is the fact that as soon as I try replacing with just the TLD (domain.tld) an entry that use to be 'machine-name.domain.tld' inside the WP Multi Network 1.1 domain name, then all hell completely breaks loose and I have to completely reset the wordpress database.
I'm sorry, but WP Multi-Network v1.1 is so undocumented that JJJ should not steer people to use it and something should be written (which I am doing) on a public post, which states clearly the matters of affairs.
1) If you do not need multiple networks
2) and you want to use Wordpress 4.6
3) and you want to use Domain Mapping
4) on top of a Multisite network
then Yes! Apparently, this is possible with WPMUDEV's Domain Mapping plugin.
and Screw WP Multi Network v1.8.1 unless you need multiple networks.
So what is WPMUDEV's position on WP Multi Network v1.8.1 ?
