Marking Users as Spam removes access to networked blogs (26 posts)

    At the Network level, when I choose a user and then select "mark as spam", I lose access to all the networked blogs in the drop down "my sites" link in the top bar. I end up having to delete the user.

  2. Removes whose access? Yours or the person that you're spamming?

    Mine. I lose access to all the networked blogs.

  4. How are you getting it back?

    Also what plugins are running network wide and on your main site?

  6. Wait... if you lose your access, how come you can still un mark them as spam?

    I lose access to the networked blogs - not the network admin pages or the main blog for that matter. When I go to the "my sites" link in the top bar. The drop down menu only shows-
    Network Admin
    The Main Site Blog

  8. This is absolutely ... weird.

    Unless the person you're spamming is the admin of those sites, you shouldn't have anything change.

    There not admins, just freshly registered spammers.

  10. Well all I can think is (a) you have a plugin causing this or (b) you've been hacked somehow.

    Probably a plugin. When I get a moment, I'll turn 'em all off then on one by one and test and report back.

    Make sure to check your htaccess folder as well for any kind of code u shouldn't have there.

    Ah! It marked all the blogs as spam as well as the users, even though I created the blogs not them!

    I unmarked the blog as spam and it came back, the users stay marked as spam.

    If I mark another user as spam the same thing happens.

  14. No luck with all the plugins off?

    No. I deactivated all of them. Well, I deactivated the network enabled ones.

    Maybe a issue with your MU install?

  17. You also have to turn off all the ones on your main site

    The plugins and theme on your main site impacts how the network tools run.

    Sorry I couldn't find or replicate your issue.
    I would ask your host for help.

    Bluehost refers any WP issue here.

  26. After you mark someone as spam, go into wp_sitemeta and look for site_admins.

    Does your account still show up there?
