Support » Networking WordPress » Multisite and user registration

  • Hi All,

    I have a WordPress 3.0 install with 4 sub-sites.

    I want to enable registration for some sub-sites, yet not others, is this possible?

    Right now, if a user clicks to register in /sub-site01/wp-login.php?action=register

    they are redirected to the root site: /wp-signup.php

    Then the registration email gives them the link to log in to the root site and not the sub-site they wanted to register for.

    Any ideas if there is a setting I am missing?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Default behaviour. They then have to be aded to the site you want them on.

    Users are global across the network as pseudo-subscribers. they can only visit the admin area of the main blog (and see their profile page only) or the blogs they are assigned to.

    ok, cheers for the reply.



    Is there a way to automatically give any registered subscriber access to all subsites?

    For example, I have a multisite with six subsites. I want a new subscriber to have subscriber roles on all six with one registration.

    And do you think it’s possible to get something like
    A user clicks to register in /sub-site01/wp-login.php?action=register
    and are not redirected to the root site: /wp-signup.php
    but stay and register at /sub-site01/wp-login.php?action=register

    It’s more ogical to stay on the subsite, isn’t it ?

    It makes more sense when you realize that multisite is what runs

    Is there a plugin or something to do that ?

    this is after they register on the main site first.

    otherwise, make a page template from the wp-signup,php file, remove the redirects to the main site and you shoudl be able to register on sub sites.

    For the second solution, may be can you help me, it will be useful for everyone.

    That’s my wp-signup.php

    [code snipped because that is the default wp-signup.php file]

    What do I pick exactly?

    the redirect to the main site are at the top of the file.

    Please do not past entire php files in the forum, especially if they are a default core file. We all know where to find them, and in some cases exactly what they contain.

    Ok, no problem

    I saw the redirect to the main site at the top, but as i’m really not a php expert and maybe could you give us the exact line and the corrections to bring, please.

    I really need an advice, i’m so desesperate, please.
    My main site is totally unrelated to other sub-sites, then users don’t understand this redirections.
    Please can you help me, i need a solution for that issue.
