Support » Fixing WordPress » Share Users Some Users But Not Others

  • I have multiple installations of wordpress on my site. Each installation is for a different topic. I want the commenters to be able to have the same account throughout the blogs, but I don’t want writers to have the permission to write on other blogs. What databases would I want to merge/what should I change?

  • Don’t require commenters to register/login — problem solved 🙂

    I need the users to have accounts for other things. My WP is HEAVILY modded.

    If the above isn’t possible, is there a way to combine all users between blogs?

    You could import just the users table to each blog’s db.

    Since WordPress 2.0 all user level or capability info is held in the usermeta table. You’d have to reset general profile details for each blog, but logins and such remain the same. And it would allow you to set a user to ‘author’ on one blog but ‘subscriber’ on others (or whatever roles we’re talking about here).

    That is probably my best option. I’m combining WP’s user tables with a forum. I want the commenters to have forum accounts too…a lot of integration.
