Multisite user registration confusion, please help (8 posts)

    I've got a wordpress network with three subdomains. Domain mapping works perfectly. The one problem, if a user tries to register in one of the subdomains they are redirected to the main domain. When they get the confirmation e-mail and try to activate their account, it is also activated on the main domain. I've tried several plugins including mulrisite user management( which just gives me a database error and dies).
    None of them do what I need.
    Is there any way to keep the user experience with the proper subdomain, and if not, can this be added into the next version of wordpress?
    The way it is now is very confusing, and defeats the purpose of running a multisite wordpress network.

  2. That's by design, to redirect you to the main site.

    You can edit the emails, though, in the network admin, and change from network URL to site URL.

    Thanks Robin,
    I meant is their a work around for Cenobyte1 question.

    If a user tries to register in one of the subdomains they are redirected to the main domain. How do they register on the subdomain?

    Try registering below, you will be redirected.

    Ok one of the quick work around i can see is
    using a gravityform addon user- registration (as it syncs with your wp-user-profile

    so instead of giving the default register you let this form be opened up,
    and the fields filled r synced in wordpress user area and they are synced in buddypress ( there is a setting to activate it) and u can add more fields to your wordpress user profile fields to match what ever you want more info from your your when filling registration form so all 3 forms which will be syncing have same fields
    I hope i am making sense :)

    This is just a theory though but i think this can work worth giving a try

  8. If a user tries to register in one of the subdomains they are redirected to the main domain. How do they register on the subdomain?

    Or, if you don't want a plugin, you can make a page on your subdomain, call it /register. Then make a page template where you essentially steal the code from the wp-signup.php page. Set that template for your page and you're done :)

    Some tweaking may be required.
