How to allow sub-sites to be able to register new users? (2 posts)

    Posted 5 years ago #

    I was wondering if there are any ways to make sub-sites have the ability to register its own users. Consider example.com as the super admin site, and example.com/123 as the sub-site. If I go to example.com/123/wp-signup.php I will be redirected to example.com/wp-signup.php.

    I haven't been able to find a plugin to stop this. I'm also doing domain mapping which is why I want to hide the super admin domain. The domain mapping also does not help the redirecting. It seems to be a core thing.

    Any help is appreciated!

    I have WordPress version 3.0.3.

    Plugins can't stop it. That is the way it is. Users signup for a role on your network first, then they can be assigned a role on any blog. They can't have a role on a blog without first becoming active users of the network.

    Even if you had the signup form working at blog 123/wp-signup.php, the users are created the same way.

    A SuperAdmin can assign users to various blogs (SuperAdmin->Sites->Edit), or the Admins of the blogs can invite existing/new users to become members (Users->Add New).

    Also logged in Network users can add themselves to blogs using this widget:
