Corporate user subaccounts? (7 posts)

    I want to sell network sites to corporations, so the corporations can manage the users in their subdomain site. Only the users of a subdomain will have access to the private subdomain. But the existing network setup says that all WP users are subscribers to all sites in a network.

    Maybe I'm not using the right terminology. Is there some sort of subaccount plugin or configuration option, so there can be master accounts who manage their subaccounts? The subaccounts should be in separate name spaces so the same name can be used by different people in different subdomains.

  2. This sounds like a Multisite question. I'm going to move your question to that forum so the gurus there can see it more quickly.

  3. Sorry, usernames are global across the network. If roamfree has access to one subdomain, he needs to use the same username to see another subdomain.

    And users are "pseudo" subscribers. they are not actually listed as users on all sites.

    So usernames are reserved across all participants of a network, but the users only have privileges within the one site where they were defined? The "super admin user" has access to all sites.

  5. Users only have privileges on sites where they've been specifically added.

    The default really only means they can comment on any site in the network if "must be logged in to comment" is checked on those sites.

    So by default any user on any site has read access to all sites in their Network, and can comment on any site. Can read access to a site be restricted to only users registered in that site?
