Masked URL

So I forwarded my Yahoo Domain - and it masks my shopify domain - so did I read something about sites not being able to spider it that way? Or was it that you can't use the metrics tools when you have it masked? Also - when I do the site submit thing to Y and G - do I use my Yahoo domain or the actual masked shopify domain?

Your site will also not work in IE as IE does not allow cookies from masked urls.

Somewhere in the world right now sgfludd is weeping uncontrollably.

Having wrestled with css night and day, now you’ve got to enter the mainline geekery of DNS.

Take heart, there are some good discussions on here and a clear account in the Wiki. Is this where your domain is registered? there’s a reference to CNAME records (the one you’ll need to point to your shopify domain) halfway down the page.

Are you using yahoo domains DNS? I just helped out a fellow Shopifier with this just the other day. If you need help, contact me by email on how I can reach you by phone and I will walk you through setting it up.

That is of course if your offer for samples of your yummy product is still on the table!!

Oh good grief – is every step of this process going to be THIS painful! I guess it doesn’t really have to be masked – I just thought that since I went to so much trouble to get the domain – I may as well show it off a little. Le sigh….......

And not weeping – but wanting to fall out on the floor and have a complete temper tantrum.

Strangely – the more I dig into this stuff – the more interested I am. Perhaps I’m discovering my inner geek….who knew? :)
