Hi, you don't have any wildcard in your DNS setup, i.e. like

* A 14400s

since you are using Bluehost, there is an easy way to add this:

Goto the cPanel and then check out the "Domains" and click on the "Subdomains" icon.

- There you can enter * (asterisk) in the first textbox named "subdomain",
- then add in the next textbox after that.
- In the textbox named "Document root", you type in the folder where you have your wordpress folder installed.

Hope this helps

are you want to create this "" subdomain. and your main site is ?

what error are you getting ?

When I click "Add New Site" and add nothing comes up in the My Sites dropdown. No errors are coming up, so it is weird. I even set the subdomain variable or whatever in the wp.config to True and that didn't work either.

Hi Jagst3r21,

Seems you do not have multisite corectly configured.

Perhaps you just have not done the full 6 steps process: [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]]

I can do that for you, please send me login details to your site via [[LINK href=""]]PM[[/LINK]]

----- Edit -----

There is an issue with your DNS settings, maybe I'll need login details to your hosting account too.
