I need to set up a subdomain of blog.scholarships360.org using multisite but it doesn't seem to work. I am not a noob, so I am a little vexed why I can't figure this out...I will provide log in details to hosting account.

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

*.scholarships360.org A 173.254.9.45 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 scholarships360.org 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

When I click "Add New Site" and add blog.scholarships360.org 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="http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network"]]http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network[[/LINK]]

I can do that for you, please send me login details to your site via [[LINK href="http://wpquestions.com/user/contact/id/1329"]]PM[[/LINK]]

----- Edit -----

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