Global Login For Multisite Install (9 posts)

    We'd like to enable blog owners in a multisite install to login from the home page of the master blog and then get redirected to their admin dashboard. Somewhat similar to wordpress.com. Anyone aware of some code or plugin?

  2. this is what it does by default.

    what results are you experiencing?

  3. You mean you want someone to log in from the main site but be taken to the site that they admin?

    Huh. I can't see how that would work, since even if you did scan for blogs the user was an admin of and redirect, it would break as soon as someone had two blogs.

  4. nah, there's a function to handle that - the user is assigned a primary blog. If they have additional blogs they create, the first one is the primary unless they change it under Dashboard -> My sites.

    I guess my terminology needs polishing...

    @ ipstenu -- Yes, exactly -- we want to enable users to login from the home page of the main blog and be redirected to the blog they admin. Our planned use of multisite is nowhere near the prototypical blog network - we're using it in a very different way. No user will be an admin of more than one blog.

    So... just wondering if there is anything out there (plugin or tutorial - paid or free) that we can have a look at, either to use/purchase as is or form the basis of some custom code on our end.

    Hi there, I'm having the same issue - have disabled all plugins to make sure. New users get added to main site as subscribers automatically as well as the created site (site.domain.com).

    The primary site being set is by default the main site (domain.com), rather than the newly created site.domain.com site

    Should really be the other way around...

    Ideally, I would like users, once logged in, to be inside their site's admin page... Have lost quite some time researching how to do this and have come close but not there yet.

    I've discovered the problem and it was quiet unrelated - I had a blog template which had users which were being copied over to each new blog.

    Any Solutions? this is a tough one no doubt but this is pretty important. So to clarify..What is currently happening is when a user logs in they go to /wp-admin/. What I believe should happen with a multisite sub-directory install is the user is
    directed to /myblog/wp-admin/.

    This makes more sense to me. As the user shouldn't even be allowed access to the main /wp-admin/ Unless they are the rightful admin. Which brings me back to my first question. Any Solutions?

    A redirect to users primary blog was discussed at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/automatic-redirection-to-child-site-from-main?replies=15.

    Solution by David Sader certainly worked in 3.1.

    Perhaps you could you adjust this to send the users to their own admin dashboards on login ?
