Oh boy, not having a terribly good time getting to grips with WordPress Multisite.
For my project, it would seem the natural way to go to base it all on a Multisite platform – but there appears to be so many headaches and hurdles – many of which I am astounded are not built in to core functionality. Having got around several issues already, some involving plugins, I am left with two big problems.
1. User Registration and WordPress User Roles
When a new user registers on a subdomain, no WP user role is automatically assigned. Instead this has to be manually done – even though the Network Admin setting is set to subscriber for default role.
I need each user to be automatically assigned the subscriber role.
2. User Access To Sites
When a new user registers on a subdomain, they automatically have access to all other sites on the network. I need to be able to automatically restrict each user to the site on which they register.
Obviously I have scoured forums and articles about both of these points, but the only answers offered so far involve out of date/unsupported plug ins or plug ins that go too far in hiding sites.
Any other solutions would be gratefully received!
