WordPress MU Domain Mapping
Permission Issue (4 posts)

    I have setup WordPress 3.1.2, and have the wordpress MU domain mapping plugin installed, with a subdirectory multi-site setup. I hope my explanation makes sense, but here is my setup:

    main site:
    sub sites:
    examples.com/foo2 << super.othersite.com

    And linking the Domain mapped site to Site Admin > Sites > foo1,foo2.
    This is great it creates and user by default and the websites can be seen at http://super.othersite.com.

    However here is my issue, when the user tries to login to their site they get the following error:
    "You don’t have permission to view this site. Please contact the system administrator."
    Apache reports nothing sadly but: ...GET /foo1/wp-admin/?c=1 HTTP/1.1" 302" ..

    I have tried changing some of the domain options like disabling remote login and redirect admin pages, but with no luck.

    Suggestions ?

    Thanks for your help,

    Not sure whether this actually has anything to do with the mapping plugin.

    Have you checked that the user has been added to the new site and been given the correct permissions ?
    If within network administration, you look at the sites view, you should see the first few users of a particular site listed on the right.
    Click 'more' to see all users assigned to the site and to check what user role they have been given.

    When creating the new site/domain, wordpress automatically created a new Admin user for that site/domain, so I believe they do have the correct permissions. I see the user is an admin on in the panel. They just cant log in.

    The issue was when adding a new site, wordpress was making the site and home urls all weird that needed to be fixed.
