Finding the Domain Mapping Wordpress 3.0 Super Admin Panel After Installing MU/Creating Network and Installing the Domain Mapping Plug-in

Perhaps this is the sort of thing for which Halvorson and Rach wrote "Content Strategy for the Web", a book about need for "Content Strategists", and how to be one--someone who "owns" (makes it their baby) and manages content, rather than distributing its creation across many different people: for if one follows the instructions here, http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/installation/ one finds himself unable to use the Domain Mapping Plug-in for Wordpress 3.0, because one is directed
As a "super admin", visit Super Admin->Domain Mapping [...]
and that isn't how things organize anymore. It also helps to tell people what is meant by things like "Super Admin" and "Super Admin Panel", and not with this out-of-date article that is almost just a picture, http://codex.wordpress.org/Super_Admin_Admin_Screen Actually, "Super Admin Panel" is something a newby will need be told how to get to. IF one has successfully activated the WordpressMU (or created a "Wordpress Network") following instructions like these, http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network a new kind of Admin, the "Super Admin" is automatically generated by Wordpress in the process. When that occurs, here is how one goes about finding the "Super Admin Panel" from the "Dashboard" screen that greets the user who logs in.

Further, here is the location of the Domain Mapping options location:

As for "Content Strategy for the Web", due to the nebulous and underspecialized nature of being a Content Strategist, there are many pages (so far) one wants to hit his head against the wall for vagueness; also for repetition; also for the perhaps warranted need for terms for responsibilities from other disciplines whose tasks overlap with being a Content Strategist, and even for writing about "well duh" things. Only, many books are successful precisely because they write about "well duh" things, because they take the time to come up with good illustrations of the cases they pose, and because they may be things we should think about at a given time of need, but we don't tend to, and they remind us and give us something concrete to encode and remember for later use. I am only a few chapters through, but so far it is not a bad book.
