Shared Users Reloaded

Share WordPress users and assign roles between multiple blogs without using wordpress MU or multi-site.

When WordPress MU (now WordPress 3.0 MS) is not an option for you for whatever reason, sometimes you just want to "Share Users" between your databases. The reason this plugin was created was because we couldn't install wordpress into the "root directory" of our website, which is a requirement of a multi-site wordpress install regardless of the version.

Example: domain1.com/articles/ and domain2.com/articles/.

We wanted to only maintain 1 set of users similar to multi-site wordpress. This plugin requires NO MODIFICATION of your wp-config file. We took the outdated "Shared Users" plugin and completely overhauled it. With "Reloaded" you now have the following features:

  • Option to import, or to NOT import users when moving the blogs users table to another blogs users table (where is Shared Users before it forced all administrators to be copied).
  • Ability to manage and maintain all the users security to each blog from the "master blog". So you are no longer limited to only having administrators between the blogs. This is VERY SIMILAR to how you can control user roles in WordPress MU except you have completely seperate wordpress blog installs! This makes it possible and EASY to remove the blog from the Multi-Site type of environment whenever you want.

It took many hours to develop this plugin so if you find it useful, any donations would be greatly appreciated.
