[resolved] WPMU User Registration on Child Sites (4 posts)

    I'm running the latest version of wordpress, buddypress, on a subdomain multisite setup.

    What I would like to setup is such that when a person wants to comment on one of the child sites, they have to be registered and logged into the main parent site.

    When I select in the child site Settings/Discussion and set the requirement for a user to be logged in and registered, I see a link in the comment area that takes me to the login screen on that child site.

    What I would prefer happen instead is for the link to take me to a page on the main parent site where the person can register.

    I'm using the OneAll Social login which allows a person to register simply by clicking on a social icon. It would be swell if after completing the one click registration the user is taken back to the comment area where they can then post their comment.

    Let me know if ya'll have any questions about what I'm asking.

    Thanks!

    Can you give us the code from the comments.php file?

    Kinda sorta can do that.

    You can redirect all registrations to the main site via .htaccess (so if they go to domain.com/*/wp-login.php send them to domain.com/wp-login.php)

    At that point, they shouldn't have to register on the child site, since the have-account-to-leave-comment checks for network-accounts, and not per site.

    Thanks Ipstenu - I thought of creating a rewrite rule, but it seems like there ought to be a native solution - to keep all network registrations on the parent level.

    I'll probably end up doing just that. Thanks for your input!
