I have magento community version 220.127.116.11
I am using the computer store theme from buzzthemes.
I have an email in to them to ask this question as well.
When I go to the domain name that I set this up under to start with, I see the site I expect.
When i go to the 2nd domain name I've added, I ALSO see the same site.
At the bottom of the page is a drop down that allows me to choose which store to see.
When I choose either store from this list, I see the store I expect (but the url has variables added to it)
If I then close my browser and go back to either domain name, I see it as expected with the url as expected (no variables added)
I got two ideas on this -
A) I'm a noob and set it up wrong (but I've read like 10 walk-thrus and none seem to point to the problem)
B) this theme takes over control of the domain mapping and I either need a new theme, or some directions from Buzzthemes.
Anyone willing to give me a clue, lol? Do I just need to pick a different theme?
I have one main website, 2 stores, and 2 store views total, which I hope to use the same product list with some removed, and the same checkout page. I just want a different left menu on each section of my site.
Ok, so, I managed to get the other sites showing, but now I've managed to mess up the main site, lol. I had it working under one domain name, and then wanted to change the main domain name.
I found the first problem I had was in the htaccess file. This is how it is now:
SetEnvIf Host www\.mainsite\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=mainsite SetEnvIf Host www\.mainsite\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host ^mainsite\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=mainsite SetEnvIf Host ^mainsite\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host www\.site2\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=site2 SetEnvIf Host www\.site2\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host ^site2\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=site2 SetEnvIf Host ^site2\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host www\.site3\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=site3 SetEnvIf Host www\.site3\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host ^cheappower\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=site3 SetEnvIf Host ^site3\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host www\.site4\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=site4 SetEnvIf Host www\.site4\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host ^site4\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=site4 SetEnvIf Host ^site4\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host www\.site5\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=site5 SetEnvIf Host www\.site5\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store SetEnvIf Host ^site5\.com MAGE_RUN_CODE=site5 SetEnvIf Host ^site5\.com MAGE_RUN_TYPE=store
When I go to the main site home page, it shows site4's home page.
I have a domain pointed at this that is not configured, and I see the page I expect to see when I type in the url for the main site's home page.
all the other sites are showing the home page I hoped to see.
I have been thru every setting I can to make sure that default config, main website config, and this store view's config all have the exact same settings in configuration, general, web and design.
I have caching turned off, but have cleared it. I have cleared my temp files. I have tried a different computer.
I have gone over the "manage stores" and all are identical. I have quadruple checked my spelling.
Where would you look next?
