Multisite Common Login / Users (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    I have a multisite network with 3 sites. The sites are subdirectories using domain mapping.

    http://www.onesys.ie (main site, no mapping)
    http://www.pegasusopera.com (mapped domain from onesys.ie/onesysnews/)
    http://www.pegasusopera.net (mapped domain from onesys.ie/onesysforum/)

    These sites all share the same styling, and are intended to be perceived by the user as ONE cohesive website... however I've been having a nightmare with the login / registration system!

    What I want is that when a user logs into any of the 3 sites, he/she should be logged into all 3 sites. When the user logs out, then he/she should be logged out of all 3 sites! This is not the case at the moment.

    I want the user to be taken to whatever page they were viewing after logging in / logging out. I can achieve this on the main site, but on the mapped sites the user is taken to wp-login.php.

    Surely there's some way of making the login system behave the same way across all sites on a multisite network?!

    Has anyone tried to achieve this before? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

  2. In the domain mapping options, did you enable "remote login"?

    Thanks for the reply Andrea...

    I have enabled the "Remote Login" function, however that hasn't really solved my problem.

    I'm unsure how I should set this up really. As I said I have 3 sites that should be perceived as one site. Should each site have its own login and registration page or should they all use the same one?

    I don't want the user seeing the wordpress login screens, or the backend.

    Whatever way I try it, the user is never logged into all 3 sites, and I'm getting the following error when trying to log out of the 2 mapped sites:

    You are attempting to log out of ONE Systems

    Do you really want to log out?

    Mind is now officially boggled! Never had this much hassle with a login system in my life...

    Same here! The main blog counts as a site, and so do each of the other blogs, so when a user has permissions for more than one site, apparently they get a login / logout for each site. Although oddly, when you log into a subsite, you're logged automatically into the main site.

    I'm using 3.2.1 with multisite and these tests are with non-admin users - authors and subscribers.

    I'm not seeing a convenient plugin unfortunately. Any help would be great!

  5. The original post had to do with domain mapping.

    For multisite, out of the box users are logged in everywhere. Perhaps you have cookies set wrong?
