    While editing a user, you won't see a list of every site to add them to.

    However, when editing a site, you can add users to it.

    Try: SuperAdmin->Sites->Edit->"Site Users"

  3. Same as before:

    we can't reproduce this.
    Turn off all your plugins.
    Make sure you have the latest codebase.

    Confusing, I know.

    Login to your sub-blog backend AS Super Admin.
    THEN go to Super Admin menu > Users > Edit User.

    If you're not in the sub-blog backend first, you are trying to edit a user on the primary blog.

    Not sure if it was intended to operate this way, but a partial solution found
    Remote posts were not being accepted because the login did not have required privileges.
    ie Cannnot be a user, must be contributor or author.
    Some how was able to change status to Super Admin
    Is the change to Network or Sub site? and how can we tell?

  6. uh, a SUPER admin has access to the ENTIRE network.

    is that what you really want?

    Thanks Andrea
    Not what I really wanted but could not change user status
    It now seems that I have multiple Super Admins
    Important: This user has super admin privileges.

    There must be a way that a user to be registered other than just a user!!

  8. Yes, there is! Are they an author on the blog? Or, if it is a blog they signed up for, they will be an administrator on that blog.

    I think your remote app is hitting the main blog which they don;t have privs on.

    I'm having this same problem with only one of my sites. The menu to change the user role (in both sites/[subsite]/edit AND sites/users) does not have anything in the dropdown menu for roles. I tried disabling my plugins but that didn't solve the problem. I thought I may have had user registration closed but I do not.

    So, basically, I cannot get any new user to access the backend of this one subsite unless they are promoted to super admin.

    Many thanks for any help you can give.

    I have installed the newest version and setup the sites brand new from scratch. I am trying to setup users and it says "Settings Saved" but no users show up. Thanks in advance for your time.
