I know white label custom domains have been removed in version 7 and I’m really disappointed that happened. I’ve been working on different solutions to the problem myself but one viable solution is a static HTML file deployed on the server which then makes AJAX calls to Surreal CMS.
I discovered this when checking out Forestry. Forestry is more aimed at those who want to use Static Site Generators. It doesn’t have amazing inline editing like Surreal CMS.
I think Cory could decouple the admin area and create a HTML file that makes AJAX calls to the Surreal CMS server. The file could be deployed easily via FTP.
This solution solves the whole problem of custom domains and SSL since the file is deployed onto the user’s web hosting and the user is responsible for obtaining an SSL certificate.
The documentation for this feature in Forestry.
I hope a solution can be found soon.
