Today, we completed a long test cycle for WPML and the Domain Mapping plugin. The bottom line, with the current versions of WordPress, WPML and Domain Mapping, everything is working for us.

The Domain Mapping and WPML tutorial include complete, step-by-steps for you to follow. There’s also a small patch for Domain Mapping, making it work correctly with WordPress 3.3.

Domain Mapping is a pretty complex plugin. Just like WPML, it also manipulates the URL rewrite rules for WordPress.

Domain Mapping works on the ‘domain’ part, while WPML works on the ‘page’ page. Theoretically, there should be no interaction between the plugins and we were happy to confirm that, using WordPress 3.3.

You’re welcome to leave comments here. For complete tech support, I suggest opening threads in our technical support forum.

    • Thanks for confirming this Hiranthi. Some people have reported problems with WPML and Domain Mapping. We created the reference sites and wrote this tutorial so that we have some basis for comparison and can identify what others are doing differently, which leads to different results.

  1. I would like to use different domains per language in the Setup menu Language URL format section, but I receive an error message saying: “Error: data not saved”. Can it be an ISP related question?

    Thanks,

    • It’s really difficult to tell without checking more details. Please report it in our technical forum and our support folks will help:

      Remember to include the details of your different domains. Of course, I’m assuming that you have followed the setup details for languages in domains. There’s some to do in the DNS and some in Apache.
