Not sure whether this is a bug or not, but here's the situation, in brief:

Zeteo Journal started a new site and asked us to switch the zeteojournal domain mapping from their previous site to the new one. You can see the current site here:

In order to make this work, I had to delete the old domain mapping entry that mapped to the old blog, which I think was Only when I deleted the mapping record to the old blog was I able to direct it to the new one (in other words, simply editing the entry and trying to change the blogid associated with the id didn't work).

I suggested to the editors that they make the old site private rather than deleting it, just in case they want to reuse its content. But we find ourselves unable to find it. The blog no longer shows up in the list of sites in the editor's profile; I can't find it in the blog search on the site, either through the front-end or the backend; and when I go to, I'm redirected to (not sure why that's happening, since I deleted the old domain-mapping record).

If you have any ideas, please let me know. Low priority.

Circling back around to this ticket. I noticed that there was a line in .htaccess that involved hardcoding the malsjournal redirect. I've removed it, and I've also made the malsjournal site available only to its administrators (stsank and wwarner). I ran a quick test and I see it in my own Sites listings when I'm added as a user. So I think this is resolved. Sorry for the delay.
