    This is really a question for Scott Reilly, the creator of the Allow Multiple Accounts Plugin:

    Scott, do you have any plans to upgrade this plugin to work with the latest WordPress 3.3 anytime soon?

  • I’m having the same problem and I need it, hope Scott fix it soon 🙂

    I could not get Allow Multiple Accounts version 2.5 to work in multisite WordPress 3.1.2. I created a completely fresh install of WordPress 3.3 multisite just to test this single plugin, but had luck getting the plugin to run there either.

    Please try with v2.6 of the plugin and let me know if any problems still persist. Thanks!

    Thank you Scott – I’m in the middle of updating my theme at the moment and don’t want to mess things up by upgrading the latest wordpress just yet, just in case other plug-ins stop functioning.

    When I get the chance to install WP3.3, I shall test out your upgrade and let you know if it works.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Stet that last message… I had another wordpress test site set up, so I upgraded that to WP3.3 then upgraded your plugin and all works well!

    Brrrrrrrrrilliant Thank you Scott!

    First off – THANKS for the plugin. It is much needed!

    However in testing, it seems to be broken with WP Multisite 3.3.1.

    When I attempt to add my test user to the second website (with the same E-mail address) I get these errors:

    Sorry, that username already exists!
    
    That username is currently reserved but may be available in a couple of days.
    
    That email address has already been used. Please check your inbox for an activation email. It will become available in a couple of days if you do nothing.

    Any ideas or does the plugin need to be updated?

    Thanks!

    @lansrad: Have you activated the test user before attempting to registering a second user with that email (or otherwise trying to use that test user for anything)?

    If you’ve already activated the user (by following the link in the activation email), then are you trying to register a second account using the same username? For the second subsite, this plugin allows you to re-use the same email as used for another account. But you can’t re-use an existing username. The error you pasted above pertains to username and not email.

    Yes I had caught that one from your docs.

    The error you pasted above pertains to username and not email.

    I saw that, but since the error message above ( line 3 ) also said the E-mail address had already been used, it seemed related.

    For the second subsite, this plugin allows you to re-use the same email as used for another account. But you can't re-use an existing username.

    That is unfortunate – I thought that your plugin would provide a missing link that could solve a serious need for WP Multisite.

    The goal here is to allow WP Multisite to be used by developers as a tool to manage a “controlled” set of WP sites. However these sites would be not a part of a network per se ( like a WordPress.com site with multiple blogs ), but rather independent sites that use the domain mapping plugin to map an external domain like http://www.siteA.com to http://www.MyWPSiteHosting.com/SiteA.

    Since these sites are not related at all, it is imortant that a user be able to visit more than one hosted site and still use the same name and E-mail address.

    Perhaps you could consider that as an option to your plugin ( to be able to re-use the user name as well as the E-mail address ), or of creating a derived plugin that could accomplish this.

    Such a capability would really open up a new way to use WP Multisite.

    The developer could setup and manage multiple WP sites with ease, map the external domains to them and also be able to have a controlled environment (where only approved/provided themes and plugins can be installed).

    If you can make this possible, you’d be a big time hero of a lot of folks!

    I see what you’re getting at and can appreciate your desire: essentially being able to use WP MS to manage multiple sites via a single installation, but being able to have full conceptual separation between the sites (plugins, themes, users, etc). Sometimes you want to facilitate running multiple sites instead of a network.

    That said, WP is geared for the network approach. There are a number of implications of allowing duplicate accounts (username + email) (even just username). Supporting this is outside the scope of this plugin.

    I’m not convinced that this is viable with how things are architected now, but for that reason (and I like challenges) it’s worth investigating in the future.

    Exactly!

    That’s great!

    If you decide to pursue it and want someone to do testing, just let me know.
