I run a WPMU/buddypress network and want members to have the option to add a blog, but want to approve it before this gets created.
I have the settings set to "Both sites and user accounts can be registered." as if I choose any of the other settings, no-one including a super admin can create a blog. This does seem to allow new members to choose a blog on signing up, even when I thought all new members are automatically 'subscribers' rather than 'contributors' so should not be able to create a blog let alone write one.. (WE have had some spammers recently adding blogs on sign up)
I also cannot quite understand how I can find out what kind of role a new user has in network admin. In site admin this is visible, but all my new members are not visible in the site admin unless I manually add them..
I obviously have something 'wrong' in my settings, but cannot figure out where.
I should mention that this is my first multisite but have had a WP site for quite a few years, so am familiar with WP, but am still learning the MU part.
I would also like to change permissions for members to create groups and events ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/eventpress/ ) to 'approval only' where would I change these permissions?
Thanks ever so much for anyone that can offer advice to help me along :)
