Not perfect but usefull

Purchased once for one project with 4 Domains used it for some time but it was to mutch work with it. After all it is faster and easier to modifying the hosting or record (when possible) as using this Add On.

It is a very nice idea but need a little more ..... brainpower to make it great .-)

Saving me a ton of time

Having over 100 communities under one global one on a single site install just got a lot easier thanks to this. Would love to find a clever way of having a login pass between the sub sites and the main one, but that is a small price.

By Concrete5, but not for Geeks

I just bought this package because I thought it would be a clever solution. I thought it would be easy to use and comforting for the user.
Well, it definitely is easy to use, but the amount of work it does stunned me - in a bad kind of way.
I thought to myself: It will take me one hour to fix this myself, but then I only do it half-hearted. Well, I would have done everything this addon does.
As soon as I get out of the edit Mode, I "jump" back to the root page. It does nothing to exclude subpages of excluded pages (so that the sub-pages are not shown on the root page) out of the nav.
I really don't get it what the service of this package is, at all.

So, to all fellas who bought it, a few hints to make it behave it more like I feel it should:

- Modify the .htaccess:
# -- concrete5 urls start --
AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*secondhosthere.*$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^.*secondhostfolderhere.*$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/secondhostfolderhere/$1 [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]
# -- concrete5 urls end --

If you want a different favicon for each theme, use this in the header element of the theme:

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="foo.png" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="icon" href="foo.png" type="image/x-icon" />

And dont include an Favicon in the dashboard.

To avoid "jumping" from domain to domain, you can add this to your config/site.php:

if(preg_match("/maindomain/", $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']) > 0)
define('BASE_URL', '');
else if(preg_match("/seconddomain/", $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']) > 0)
define('BASE_URL', '');

You could refine this all very easily, also for general purpose, and that is why I am seriously disappointed by this 125$ addon. It took me about one hour to do this basic stuff, and I don't see any reason why this is not included in the addon..

Works Great!

I have a site on and it has 5 sub-sites that may grow to more than 20. Rather than deal with 20 installations I save a ton of time and energy with just one installation and run the Domain Mapper. $125 seemed like a lot when I bought it but it's paid for itself many times over.

Saves me a ton of time and hassle

Our organization manages a bunch of small pages for clients (non-profit, public works stuff) and this makes my life a heck of a lot easier since employees don't need a new account for each site we create and now every site is managed within one C5 install. Super time saver, super helpful for my purposes.

Down sides include
- above stated sub-directory path (but really not a big deal, just something to be aware of)
- load time/rendering weirdness; sometimes loading your add-on page theme doesn't go very smoothly: flash of blank background, elements loaded in weird order, etc.

nice, but...

it's a nice addon... very helpfull...

but you really should add the feature that the add-on works without full paths

links like for example are not really nice. would be better.

I expected MORE for that price.

more of a question than review… but it didn't seem like there was anywhere else better to post this…

how well does the domain mapper work with TLS/SSL? seamless?

thanks! :)

thought i'd better ask before i buy.

super handy

Does the job well, and it is a much more affordable way to get your site setup this way than paying us for half a day of tinkering.... we'll DO the tinkering if need be as part of support!
