  1. Hi,
    It seems that this plugin is exactly what I need but I do not know how to work with it. The plugin it is installed, hosting company made the changes requested. The permalink under title while writing a post/page looks fine, but after publishing I get a “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage” while trying to acces category or page. any ideas ?
    Thank you!

  2. Hi Alice, could you post a link to the site so I could take a look for you? You could send it via the Contact page if you don’t want to publicly share it 🙂

  3. Hi Dempsey,

    Great Work as always … It works now with Tags, BUT … ( 😉 )

    When I call a second page (“older postings”) (eg http://www.domain.tld/page/3) (no matter if I am in a category or not), Firefox shows me this error-message:

    Redirect Loop
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for
    this address in a way that will never complete.
    The browser has stopped trying to retrieve the requested item. The
    site is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete.

    * Have you disabled or blocked cookies required by this site?
    * NOTE: If accepting the site’s cookies does not resolve the
    problem, it is likely a server configuration issue and not your

    (Same as on IE).

    I’ve disabled all other plugins, but the error remains.

    Also interesting, if I call the next page (“older postings”) of a cateogry eg. http://category.domain.tld wordpress shows me the second page of all postings (“http://www.domain.tld/page/2”)

    Thank you and …

    kind regards from Vienna


  4. Trying to get this working with wordpress 2.5.1 but it shows the wrong category as the subdomain – plugin needs updating ?

  5. Hi I’ve installed wp 2.6 and the plugin activates and can create subdomains but when you choose to assign a different theme to category an error message appears “cannot load subster rejuv…php” this message also appears when the link is clicked to Edit Theme Options. I’ve installed Category Themes plugin by Mike Lopez and that allows you to assign the theme and works with this plugin but would like to solve the problem anyway.


  6. Hi Demsey,

    Thanks a billion for making the Subster work for 2.5!!

    I had been waiting for this so I could upgrade to beyond WordPress 2.2.

    Today, I’ve installed the plugin on WordPress 2.6. It works well except for two problems:

    1. Problem with navigating to older / newer posts, both from the index page as well as the category pages. As reported by Andreas in one of the previous comments.

    2. When I Edit a category and check the “Make sub domain” Checkbox, it wouldn’t save. I get the “category updated” message but when I go back to the edit mode for the same category, the checkbox is always unchecked. The corresponding database table “category_subdomains” wouldn’t get updated as well. But despite this, the categories function as subdomains. So, not sure if there is anything that needs to be fixed though.

    Appreciate your help.

    Thanks once again.

    1. 1 – I just rememebered, there’s not a way to automatically fix this neither the original developer nor I could find, so you have to edit your templates and change two following two functions:

      next_posts_link –> sd_next_posts_link and previous_posts_link –> sd_previous_posts_link

      2 – the message saying not found is fixed in my latest dev copy now, checking out the other issue.

  7. From the looks of thing, Dempsey, you are almost there. I am most anxious to try it out using WP 2.6 for a hosted site where I can have 20 subdomains and a total of ten MySQL databases of which 3 have been used.

    Yours would be a sorely needed plugin in a somewhat saturated plugin-world. Sure hope you can make it bullet proof and keep monitoring its use. Thanks for all your efforts to date


  8. Hello…

    Good Job but can u upgrade it? Its not work very well with WP 2.6

    The main problem is when i have to open cat from this url: domain.com/category/catname

    And then my browser can’t open page because there are redirection page1->page2->page1->page2…. and u know.

    But when i want open domain.com/category/catname/subcatname its ok and redirect to catname.domain.com/subcatname

  9. Hi Adam,

    Thanks for your great work…

    I’m still having the same problem as sapi and several others; I’m getting an infinitive redirect loop when I go to http://www.domain.com/page/2/ or http://www.domain.com/2008/08/.

    Do you think it’s possible to update the plugin to avoid these errors?

    I’ll PayPal you a donation if you can get the plugin to work error free. Send me an email if you would like to discuss this offer…

  10. i too am having this issue with the pages i tried the updated next and previous page codes as suggested and its not working im on wp 2.6.x

  11. Thank you very much for the plugin.

    But i have a problem about generating sitemaps. Once creating a sitemap, google doesnt accept them as a link. I have to create sitemaps for each category one by one. However when I added them, google doesnt accept again. Are there any fixes for this?
