Automatic site creation (4 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I work at a school and we're looking to use WordPress with our students. I've got the multi-sites set up nicely, and authentication against our Novell e-directory servers working perfectly, but what I'm really after is a plugin or code snippet that will automatically create a blog (eg blog.my.school/studentcode) and assign that student the appropriate permissions when they first log into WordPress.

    We don't fancy having to set up 500+ blogs now and another 100+ every year by hand, and we certainly can't palm it off to the class teacher.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your time

    I don't know how your authenticating with your e-directory server, but the plugin LDAP Authentication Plug-in allows you to by pasting the user LDAP/WordPress ID's while adding the users.

    Works slick, if your using LDAP.

    I'm either using that plugin or a similar one - user account creation isn't a problem. What I want to happen is when the LDAP user first logs in (and the plugin creates their account) is to have a blog automatically created and that user assigned rights.

    Thanks for the feedback though :)

    With the above plugin, you can enable the "Auto-Create WPMU Blogs" setting. When you add the users, or they log in and it creates them, it will create a blog/site for them also.
