Permalinks custom not holding in Multisite

Hi,

I set up a new multisite blog last night. At least, I think it is set up properly. I can add subdomains, plugins, post, pages, imagse, etc.

Last night, I set the godaddy DNS to forward a domain to a subdomain that MarketPress is installed. To test, I added a "trial offer" product. It shows and can be added to the cart. However, everything is still pointing to http://subdomain.main.com rather than http://www.domainname1.com (that is forwarding properly).

Going into settings > permalinks
Regardless of how many times I try to save to:

/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

The structure is saved as:
http:disappointed:subdomain.main.com/2011/06/17/sample-post/

Obviously I don't want that subdomain in the permalink structure.

Any suggestions?

To help diagnose:
Site URL: http://www.commentsupport.com/

You will quickly see that links showing in the browser are for http://comments.tuxreportsnetwork.com ....

    Hiya,

    I'm re-tagging this as a domain mapping issue. it's happening to every link on your site - not just the marketpress related ones.

    How do you have domain mapping setup? Are you using our domain mapping plugin here?

    We'll help ya get it sorted.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I asked in another thread how to set the domain mapping plugin because I couldn't get the mapping to work: especially the last set of instructions just leave me hanging.

    If you want to redirect a domain you will need to add a DNS "A" record pointing at the IP address of this server: 64.62.209.237

    Now, I called GoDaddy and they simply said (4 different people) - use the forward - and so that is how the site is done. I didn't fill anything into the domain mapping area because when I do fill it in then the site fails to load.

    The instructions are unclear because of the words "this" and "that" ... it'll need to be more specific.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
