BuddyPress Registration Options
[resolved] Buddypress multisite admin rights (10 posts)

    I am running Buddypress multi-sites. Unfortunately BuddyPress Registration Options only allows super admin the rights to administer approval of users in a multi-site environment.

    I have many BP sites in a SaaS environment (Multi-sites) and only the super admin can approve or reject users.

    Administrators of other sites within the multi-sites environment does not have any rights to approve or reject users and is the case outlined in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/not-working-with-bp-installed-on-site-other-than-root?replies=6.

    Both problems are the same because bp registration options only allows root to administer users.

    I hope you can look at fixing this issue

    thank you

    This looks like it's going to be something I need to work out and find a solution to. It's not so much a bug, but more a lack of robust features.

    The plugin was originally done years ago, before Multisite was such a huge robust feature, so that's likely why it's never properly been brought in and extensively tested. That said, I think it warrants being a focused feature for 4.2. It'll go nicely with the bbPress bits I need to re-configure. I can't guarantee a timeframe as these types of things can slip through and I don't have dedicated days to this. However, let's see what I can do. Hopefully in the next month if I can stay focused.

    Hey Frank, while I was researching ways to re-support bbPress with this plugin, I managed to stumble onto the reason why multisite admins aren't able to utilize the plugin like expected. In short, likely by some design, individual site admins aren't given the capability to edit users in a multisite setup. The article gave code examples on how to enable, and I'll likely get it adapted into the next version.

    For more information on what I found, here's the original article http://thereforei.am/2011/03/15/how-to-allow-administrators-to-edit-users-in-a-wordpress-network/

    Not sure yet, I'm hoping I can dedicate some more time shortly. The release today was a bugfix, while the multisite admin rights is more feature request.

    bbPress support coming in 4.2.0, see http://wordpress.org/support/topic/420-beta?replies=1 for more info on that and beta testing.

    Multisite support is a bigger fish that still isn't solved. The biggest issue there is that in Multisite, only Super Admins can manage users, which puts a damper on many individual sites in a MS managing their own BuddyPress users. I have notes somewhere about trying to enable sub-site admins to manage users long enough to do what they need, but it's definitely not fully tested or ready.

    Marking resolved because it's a known feature request.
