Confused on multi-site and domain mapping plugins. I'll pose a simple scenario:
In the past I've had a personal blog, marvc.com. Other family members also have blogs so what I've decided to do is create a network for the family. So I figure I'd register a new domain for the family and do the following:
1. Install WordPress 3.0.x and enable the network feature.
2. Install BuddyPress for the purpose of social networking.
This is done so my family blog resides at the new domain and my blog still resides at my old domain both of which are hosted at GoDaddy. Now I would like for my blog to reside at the family like so:
My first question is this: Can I make it so that when marvc.com is accessed it redirects to http://familyblog.com/marvc?
Answer Yes. Simply add a Forward in GoDaddy pointing to http://familyblog.com/marvc.
This is done as it allows my posts to appear on both my blog and the family activity wall.
Now my second question: Is it possible for marvc.com to remain marvc.com even though it forwards to http://familyblog.com/marvc?
This is where I "thought" the domain mapping and multi-site plugins came in and allowed you to map a domain to another network. This is where I'm confused and could use some direction.
Any responses appreciated.
