Adding existing user to multisite blog
I have had a super admin create a user with name “user name” in the top level site. The user is set as a subscriber.
But when my client goes in to the backend of a blog created under the main site (say “child1”), then tries to add that existing user through the “Add New User”page with the following user details:
Username (required): “user name”
Email: Same email address as specified when registered was first regiwtered as user.
trying to save this user the following error message is thrown:
“Only the lowercase letters a-z and numbers allowed
Sorry, that username already exists!
Sorry, that email address is already used!
Yet WP 3 allowed a user name with a space when the top level account was creqated.
Also at the top of the “Add New User” page it says:
You can add new users to your site in two ways:
1. Enter the username and email address of an existing user on this site.
2. Enter the username and the email address of a person who is not already a member of this site. Choose the username carefully, it cannot be changed.
That person will be sent an email asking them to click a link confirming the invite. New users will then be sent an email with a randomly generated password and a login link.
Is this a bug or what am I missing here. Is there a simpler way to add a whole bunch of users at the top “super admin” level then assign them to one or more sub-blogs without this crap happening?
If the space in the user name is the problem why did WP 3 allow it to be registered via the top level (ie super admin) add user page.
Any pointers appreciated.
