    I have a multi site enabled word press site. I want to restrict the users registered in main site should not access sub site. Please help me how to achieve this.
    At the beginning I used Multisite User Management plugin to give both site users can access both main site and sub site. Because of this there may some additional information may be inserted in database table. I need to find out that. Now I want the main site users should not access subsite. In subsite I will create users in admin panel. Any help would be appreciated.

    I did once have it set up like this but it took me along time to find out how to do it. I had it set up so that a user registering on one site would only become a subscriber to that site and it worked a treat.

    Unfortunately, something went wrong and I had to deactivate the plugin and, since then, I have not been able to work out how to do this.

    This is a brilliant plugin and is well advertised throughout the WordPress world but if only someone would answer the support questions, it would be even better.

    There are a lot of people asking this very same question, so this is an appeal to the owner of this plugin - please answer this question.

    I've cracked it! It was so simple. Go to Multisite User Management in Settings and set the default role for ALL sites to -None-

    When a new user registers, he or she will still be made a subscriber of the site from which they register but they will not become a user of any other site.

    If you are changing the settings, you will unsubscribe all users from all sites, so you will have to reallocate each user to his or her authorised site by hand but once you've done this, from then on it will work as I have subscribed above.

    I knew it was easy and I hope this helps.
