multisite issue with new subscribers

    Currently you can’t change this -it’s default behavior. Users are global in the entire network, and profiles are managed off the main site (or another site on the network, but still one site for all users).

    Yikes! Thanks for letting me know, but that’s actually a real problem for me.

    Users who subscribe to one of my sites have probably never even heard of the others. When they try to recover their password they get really confused because they’re directed to a site they know nothing about and don’t have any links to get them back to some place familiar.

    If a user has a site defined as their “primary” site, is there any way to make that their default link for things like password recovery?

    Built in? No.

    It works like wordpress.com. you pretty much know you’re signed in there.

    The experience this creates for subscribers is as if they’ve created an account on ebay.com and are then redirected to apple.com to reset their password. It doesn’t make any sense.

    I can’t imagine I’m the only person this would be a problem for. Anyone using WP multisite with a required login on any of their sites would run into this.

    I think all it would take is in the email that wp-login.php creates, rather then send a password reset link to the main site defined by the admin at installation, it sends a reset link to the users primary site.

    Perhaps this can be done via a plugin, but it seems like the default WP behavior doesn’t really make sense and should be changed.

    Patches welcome. 🙂

    Like I said above – it works like wordpress.COM. If you’re ever been on techcrunch, for example, you’ll see the login bar from wp.com.
