    At first glance, this might not seem like it pertains to WCV, but I think it does.

    I’d like my vendors to be able to share shopname.mydomain.com to reach mydomain.com/shops/shopname, but I want a rewrite, not a redirect. Presently, I have the redirect using:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.*)\.example\.com
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://example.com/shops/%1/$1 [L,NC,QSA]

    All attempts at modifying that to convert it to a rewrite have failed. But I recently learned that the following code works for doing something similar with categories:

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.+)\.example\.com$
    RewriteRule ^$ /index.php?category_name=%1 [L]

    So, I imagine — and obviously you could tell me one way or another — that there might be a similar solution for WCV, where instead of ?category_name I can use ?wcv_shop_name. Is this possible?

    If you find a solution, I’d love to see it!

    One thing to remember, is that NO MATTER WHAT domain.com/vendorslug/user_login will always work. That’s right, it *always* works.

    So, have your subdomain be the user login. Now you have ben.domain.com (hey, i’m a vendor now!). My store is really on http://www.domain.com/vendors/ben/ of course. But to please my lazy ass, ben.domain.com could detect the host and then redirect me to http://www.domain.com/vendors/HOST or whatever.

    If you wiggle up the code for it, let us know! It’d be fun to have in the archives.
