Why domain has to be SINGLE value for WPMU?

    Hi,

    Is there a way to disable wpmu-domain linking?

    It makes us very very inefficient.

    Here is why;

    We have wordpress MU on .x.com we setup dev.x.com. As you know for a perfect staging environment we need user sandboxes run from *.dev.x.com.

    Currently each and every developer has to ‘install’ wpmu before they start working on it, since we work with buddypress, it requires us to spend 8 hours per developer/intern to setup their sandbox.

    Obviously, we set up wpmu to use x.com/user type of blogs.

    I’d very much appreciate if you can tell me how I can change domain names without caring about what wpmu will think about it.

    If this requires some hours of work, we can hire you to do it, just let me know.

    Best,

    D

    If each developer is running their own version of WPMU locally and then committing changes to a central repository, then there really isn’t any other way I know of.

    If you’re doing it as often as you say, I bet you can trim that 8 hours down pretty substantially. I’ve got it down to about an hour or so, fully integrated with bbPress, subversion, using Netbeans as my IDE in a XP or Vista environment.

    In addition to the advice above, this is also a question best suited for the WPMU forums.

    Sometimes I forget about that too. What he said. :)

    Yes I posted there too, I also posted on wp job forums. So let’s see what we will get. I think this is not only my problem. It is really strange that wordpress insists on having one domain per installation.

    Let me share that with you, because i’m not able to re-design our dev env.

    Here is what i want to have:

    We have wpmu-buddypress on x.com.

    Can you make the SAME website work on any subdomain of x.com? (*.x.com)

    - Install a WPMU+BP

    - make an x.com

    - make the same website visible on any sub-domain *.x.com

    - leave 2nd and further level sub-domains intact. (**.*.x.com)

    thanks..

    I’ve cobbled together my own one WP-install, multi-domain solution using the resources below as a starting point. But, this is only for single-version WP, not WPMU. It is also for development purposes only using vhosts on my local machine.

    Here are the articles to get you started:

    There’s also Virtual Multiblog if you’re interested in multiple WP standard sites on one codebase:
