Re: Site Wide Activity and sub domains
I know what you mean. I am actually in the middle of playing around with Donncha’s plugin for a couple of other reasons and have noticed this one. The reason I think it doesn’t redirect the main blog is because it only sets the domain.com as the siteurl when it has links created. It might mean that instead of using Donncha’s plugin you might have to manually change the blog URL to domain.com and manually update bp blogs tables. It is something that needs to be addressed, but I personally need the original domain of blog.domain.com due to a couple of other reasons and only want the mapped domain up front, not in the dashboard. Different strokes eh? !
You should be able to manually put something in your .htaccess to convert all links from blog.domain.com to domain.com though as I did this before the domain mapping when I was just using proxy.
