    Hi

When on site one if I click the meta-register link I go the the wp-signup.php page and the theme is the one for site one. when on site two or site three if I click the meta-register link I go the the wp-signup.php page and the theme is the one for site one. I obviously have some thing wrong can some one please give me some help

    thanks in advance

  2. That doesn't make much sense. Are these sites all on different urls?

    If so, please provide the urls.

  3. You don't happen to be running multisite are you?

    Hi

    Thank you both for your reply. They make me think I have the concept a bit wrong.

    yes I am.

    I thought that multisite meant you could run multiple sites of different persuasions from the one wordpress installation.

    Is that posible?

  5. I thought that multisite meant you could run multiple sites of different persuasions from the one wordpress installation.

    Yes, that is true.

    When on site one if I click the meta-register link I go the the wp-signup.php page and the theme is the one for site one.

    When that happens the requester is sent to the first site or top level site for that form. On your installation that is http://compile.binaryone.com.au/ and that theme is the one setup there.

    I believe that's the normal behavior, for multisite. With multisite, the registration link is for signing up for new blog on your multisite network.

    Hi

    I have been reading a bit more and I am a bit confused as to the difference between a multisite and a network (this may be the sauce of my problem). Can you please point me in the direction of a description of the difference between the two.

    Thanks
    Allan

    Hi Guys

    In case anyone is having a similar problem and is reading this I figures out what the problem was. In looking for the solution I went back to the original codex from which I did the configuration and retraced my steps looking for any inconsistencies. In the codex at one point it said to deactivate all active plugins which I did. But as I ran through the rest of the codex every thing had been set up correctly so I made no other changes. I then activated all active plugins.

    I then went to set up a new user for testing and discovered that the theme problem I described above had gone. After quite a bit of investigation I think the culprit is the plugin Register Plus and more specify the setting for Custom Logo. If Custom Logo is not set or the plugin Register Plus is deactivated all together then every thing works as expected.

    Hope this helps someone else
