I went to WordCamp Chicago and all you get is this lousy blog post

I forgot to post about Ron & I going to WordCamp Chicago this past weekend, darn it. He's already posted about his session. The session I spoke about was Domain Mapping on WordPress 3.0 and you can find the slides over here. I have no idea if anyone recorded it, but I was assured by a few people afterwards that it was good.

I started off explaining briefly how to enable the network. Then, I walked users through installing the domain mapping plugin, setting it up, and doing all the DNS work. It's exactly the same as it always was in WordPressMU, but now that we are just about post-merge, I am finding many people think it is much easier. On the technical side, like I just said, it is exactly the same. Exactly. Guess it's a matter of perception.

This is a great technique and will be handy for a lot of people, so if you are planning a WordCamp and want to see us there and have me give this presentation, hassle your local organizers. 😉 It looks like we'll be going to New York and Montreal this fall. If you want to sponsor a trip, even better.

If you're here because I hassled you into signing up to the feed, welcome! 😀

    Hey Andrea,

    Speech was (in my opinion) very useful and the most helpful at WCChicago.

    Thanks again.

    I think you mentioned being able to work around the (WP3 w/ network enabled) forcing /blog into the permalinks.

    How does that work?

      See the link in the nav bar. Note that the plugin does not work with 3.0 main sites that include the www in the domain name.
