Support » Networking WordPress » Can a visitor sign up for multiple sites at once?

  • Is there a plugin that will allow visitors to sign up to multiple sites during registration? These people seem to have done it multisite/buddypress: If such a plugin does not exist, could you please tell me which hooks I should be looking at to create this feature? I thank you in advance.

    That’s custom code they use to get it to show on the registration form.

    have you looked in the buddypress forums? Since they hoked in to that?

    I know there’s code here in this forum to add all users to all blog or specific blogs. Check dsaders’s posts.

    Unfortunately, multi-site-user does not solve the problem. I am setting up a mainsite which is blog, and a second site which is a buddypress site. At both sites, I use S&S. When a user register, she fills in the form incl. the passwords, and she will have an activation code mailed. But, three problems:

    1. The registration form will not finish itself, but will turn up again with empty password fields.

    2. If the user uses the activation link from the mail, nothing seems to happen.

    3. If the user tries to register again, she will be told that login and mail as well are in use.

    The explanation is that the user is registred in the network administration part only. None of the two sites know of the user, though an admin manually may transfer the user to the two sites. And then the user may realise that login and password as well were retained.

    It looks like your registration page overrules other registration functions, such as multisite-user. I have also tried to use other registration plugins, but they seem to be overruled as well.

    Incidentally, your theme is very nice and well-functioning.

    Please, take a look at

    What’s S&S?

    S&S = Sense and Sensibility theme.

    By the way, point 1. wasn’t right. Actually, the sign up was completed. But, the activation link from the mail resulted in:

    There was an error activating your account, please try again.
    Activate your Account

    Please provide a valid activation key.
    Activation Key:

    Nevertheless, the user turned up among the networsadministrator’s users, but not among the site administrators’ users. Inserting the activation code did not change this. The activation error page just returned with a blank input field.


    First, I renamed the register directory in S&S so that the default registering was used instead of that of S&S. It worked, and I realised that I was wrong again: It suffices that the user is in the network administer’s user list when multisite user manager plugin is used.

    Second, I missed the specific Buddypress fields, which I was keen to have. Therefore, I copied the% registration folder from the default bb theme into S&S:

    cp -pr wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/registration/

    It worked!!!

    To conclude, there is a bug in S&S registration! But, it is easy solved! And indeed, S&S is very nice.

    There’s a bug in that theme, which is mine, and it is horribly outdated. 😉

    But! I am glad you found it.

    Outdated? How is it outdated?

    Well for starters it’s outdated because I haven’t tested it or touched it in months. And you already had to fix it. (thus implying by doing that, something was broken, yes?)
