    Hello,

    Just wondering am I the only one having problem with the login/ registration with this new multisites? The existing plugins seem to be not working with the registration? Any ideas?

    regards,
    Will

  2. The existing plugins seem to be not working with the registration?

    What plugins?

    The registration proces in a network is different. Go to yourdomain.com/wp-signup.php.

    If you're using plugins that work on single WP that did things to the register page... well yeah, they probably won't work on the signup page. You'll need to replace them.

    Thanks Andrea.

    I downloaded a number of login/registration plugins.
    Theme My Login
    My Brand Login
    etc...

    I am using the TwentyTen theme.

    Obviously, I want to change the login / registration page to match with the theme. The default allows you to choose a sitename. Are there any new plugins that work with the new multisites?

    thanks,
    Will

  4. The login page under /wp-admin/ is standard across the board. Any plugin for that will work when the network is activated.

    The *registration* page is different. yourdomain.com/wp-signup.php will pull in the style from the theme on your main site.

    Thanks Andrea.

    Sorry, I am relatively new to WordPress.

    I see.

    Another word, I need to find a plugin for login that matches the theme I use or find a theme than also provide login page.

    Are you any registration plugins that work with the new WordPress 3.0 multisites?

    regards,
    Will

    Hi Andrea,

    I just had a second look at your comment there

    The *registration* page is different. yourdomain.com/wp-signup.php will pull in the style from the theme on your main site.

    I am still getting my head around this:
    So, I can use any theme that is relatively new i.e. compatible with WordPress 3.0.
    The wp-signup.php will use this theme and the registration form will come up correctly?

    You know with the WordPress multisites, user can choose between Gimme the site or Just username. This is handle by wp-signup.php?

    regards,
    Will

    Hi Andrea,

    I just played around and changed to another themes and the registration form came up (the Gimme the site etc).

    I guess I just need to try a few more to get my head around it.

    thanks,
    Will

    Hi Andrea,

    no.... the wp-signup.php is ok but the wp-login.php?action=lostpassword and the wp-login still use the default WP theme.

    Is it to do with the theme of wp-login.php doesn't pull in the style from the theme?

    regards,
    Will

  10. The login area is controlled separately, not by the theme.

    there's plugins to change it though.
