Shared Users - Automatic Role Assign help (3 posts)

    I am trying to run 3 wordpress installations over the same domain, the reason why I run 3 different installations is because my host doesn't support MU for some reason, at least that's what they told me.

    So, the reason why I need 3 different installations is as follow:

    I am running a main website, a community with an adress being http://www.mydomain.com

    However, I want to give my members a more personal forum and so I want to create two extra sections for different languages.

    One section for Swedish member accessed by: http://www.activepoker.net/sv

    and another section for Spanish members accessed by: http://www.activepoker.net/es

    I do ofcourse run links to the private sections from the main website which will be in english, however I do not want my users to have to create new accounts for their private section as that would seem very unprofessional :(

    So I found this plugin Shared users Reloaded, and it works great except for one thing, each new users wont be able to login at the new websites until I set his access because everytime a new users registers he gets assigned " no role specified " by the plugin, and if I were to run a few thousands of members on this community, changing this manully would just not be possible, so I must have it automatically assign " subscriber " roles for the new users or else most users will either create multiple accounts which will be a mess when trying to find out who is who as well as most of them wont even come back to the website when they notice they cant even access their private section.

    Hope someone can help, need a way for the new users to become rolled as subcsribers automatically and all will be peach!

    Thanks in advance.

    I managed to solve it, if you're looking for a solution just add a plugin called wp orphanage, it takes all the users that have no roles and assign them subscriber automatically, you can set it up to assign them something else, but subscriber is probably what most people preferr.

    you still need to either program wp-config.php to share the user tables or use the plugin shared users.
