Capability Manager
Capability Manager does not work with WP Multisite (6 posts)

    Somehow the plugin does not work on our site that is a WP Multisite (with four different sub-blogs). We have 4 different Editors, and 50-something Contributors. Trying to set it so that our Editors can change user data for Contributors just doesn't work.

    Or try http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-role-editor/ ... It is said to be WP3+ Multi Site compatible and not as complicated as Role Scoper. In fact, it's more like Capability Manager which actually approaches the role and capabilities management from a completely different angle that Role Scoper. It might even be used in conjunction with Role Scoper.

    Testing it right now and all seems to work... So if Capability Manager would fit your needs (if it worked) and Role Scoper provides just too much (complicating things) then you might find User Role Editor will do the job on WPMS :)

    Can one of these Plugins set existing registered users from the main blog site and give all the users a Contributor role or whatever other role in another sub site without having to edit each person individually and setting them a role?

    I worked this out thanks! But holy cow now that i set them as a Contributor to the other sub site they can go into Posts >> mail Subscribers and mail out to all my subscribers this is no good that means everyone can mail to everyone.

    How do you turn this off??
