Currently we have pointing to with the new festival coming in October we are going to shift that domain to We can change the domain pointer on the registration end, but I know last year you all needed to do something on the Commons backend to allow that to happen. Could that happen soon? and if so on what kind of time schedule? Does that fall into the monthly update schedule, if so we would love to expedite it today.

Thanks for this and all you guys do for us.

Boone, I'm not sure whether this should go to you or André. Please reassign if necessary.

André, could you please make the necessary apache config changes to map this domain? I can take care of the rest on the WP side.

Hey, the domain name alias already existed so I believe no further change is needed server-side.

My recommendation would probably be to set the name record to be a CNAME of, and make the commons sub-site have a generic name, like just and finally just change the domain mapping setting in WP every year.

Marking this request for requestor feedback for now, Kimon.

In, I added to the whitelist of domains from which our WP installation will receive POST requests (allowing logins + comments)

Since the domain was already pointed at our domain name, no registrar-level changes were necessary. I simply changed the domain mapping at the WordPress level. The changeover should be complete. Kimon, let me know if you experience any problems.
