Multisite User Registration (6 posts)

    I have setup a multisite. What I'm trying to do is set it up so they can register and just be an Author on one site. I do not need them to create a site. When I do a test register all that I'm allowed to see is a profile dashboard. I can not find out how to set it so new registered users can be just an author on 1 blog on a multisite.

    The new Admin section is confusing. I use to be able to in the back end of the blog just select what I wanted them to be, but I can not find it anymore. So can someone ONLY register to be an auther for one blog on a multisite?

    This was never built in... but yes it is possible,.

    they do have to register as a user to the network first. Try this plugin

    to see if it has the option you need.

    That plugin is great for global registrations where you want new users added to multiple sites at the same time, but what about just for the site they registered thru?

    I believe, this was an option when multisite was a separate entity to wordpress. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought there was an option to allow logins thru the root site OR the site the user was on. Did that option get removed in the merging?

    Hi, Madivad,

    Did you ever resolve your problem? I'm dealing with the same issue and have not been able to find a solution yet.

    Custom User Registration Lite will do this -- allow users to only sign up for the blog they want to sign up for:
    Unfortunately the "lite" version now breaks the admin bar in 3.3. I haven't tried the paid version.

    The add users sidebar widget also used to do this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-users-sidebar-widget/
    Unfortunately it was abandoned several years ago, and as I recall, stopped working a while back.

    If anyone has a suggestion for allowing users to only add themselves to the one site they want to join, I'd be very appreciative.

  6. Lets hope someone picks up the add users sidebar widget, because as I recall it was pretty simple.
