MultiSite Permission/User Plugins&Themes (5 posts)

    I have a multi-site setup with a network admin.

    The problem I am having is we are creating other sites under the network:

    Ex. We have sites for all the schools, then the teachers are creating sites for their classrooms.

    The way we were creating the users was to make the teachers be subscribers to the school site, then they could create their own site and they would be an admin to the site they create (ex. Mr. Browns class). The problem is they need to be able to change theme options and also be able to activate a plugin. We have a google plugin that cant be activated as a network plugin so some cant use it unless we can give them access to the plugin menu to activate it...

    Any help is appreciated.

  2. The problem is they need to be able to change theme options and also be able to activate a plugin.

    If they're actually admins, then they can do that, so the 'answer' here is to ... make them admins. Remember, you're giving people their own blogs here, so there's a reasonable expectation that a blog admin has admin powers.

    What's preventing you from making them admins on JUST their sites?

    That's where I am confused... They are admins on their individual sites because by default when you create a new page your the admin.

  4. by default when you create a new page your the admin.

    No. By default when you create a new SITE, you are the admin. When you make a new page, you're the author.

    Are they signing up for the new site at wp-signup.php or are you making a site for them?

    oh sorry...i mis spoke...I meant new site. They are creating the new site by going to "Create New Site" under the dashboard, my sites menu.
