Why are "Participants" being added automatically to every blog they visit.? (1 post)

    I have a problem with users automatically being added to other blogs (sub-sites) on their network. Upon visiting a sub-site, the user gets assigned a "participant" role. This is then shown in their "My Sites" drop down in their Admin bar.

    I have Buddypress installed of course, you would know this from the "participant" role, which doesn't exist in a WordPress installation with Buddypress absent.

    In the forum "settings", there is a check box with this next to it:

    Automatically assign default role to new, registered users upon visiting the site.

    I have toggled this off and on several times, in the hope that it would fix my problem. It doesn't.

    Please help: why is my multi-site installation still adding users ("participants") to every sub-site they visit?

    Thank you.
