why the manager role cann't add its own plugins in the subsite ?

  • I created a sub-sites use the super-admin acount (SUPADMIN) ,and add a manager role account (AAA) to the sub-site.Then I found the AAA account cannot download plugin by it self,only the SUPADMIN can download plugin?
    why AAA cann’t ? Because I have many sub-sites , I want the sub-sites’s manager account can add its own plugin.

    Thanks

    Sub-sites cannot install themes or plugins.

    Thank you very much

    I have anothor question, need your help :
    We have some sites before ,such as AA.blog.abc.com , BB.blog.abc.com,CC.blog.abc.com,…..they are deployed in a separate environment,every site have its own mysql db and wordpress,and every site only have one user(such as AAA ,BBB) to publish its post。
    Now I want use one wordpress and mysql db to do this, but should make sure these users’s site name not change,and every site can manager their own themes .Do I have to use the multi-site? or other method?

    Thanks

    You don’t HAVE to use Multisite, but Multisite can totally do this (except you get ONE database for it all).

    Each site is separate, each user list is separate (though they come from the same master list), each plugin is configured separate (though again, same base), and so on.

    But the DATA and the per-site users and configuration? All separate.

    Every site admin can mange their theme, but they cannot install themes or plugins. Also no one can change usernames 🙂

    Thank you very much, we have many blog user,if I don’t use multisite and Make every user have its own sitename and his own home page
    For example:the user AAA,can login in through AAA.blog.abc.com and manager his post
    ,his home page is AAA.blog.abc.com,what shoud I do?
    because the permalink is like this-“blog.abc.com/%author%/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/”
    “blog.abc.com/AAA/2013/09/14/helloWP/”

    I also want when people vist the author’s blog ‘AAA.blog.abc.com”,in his site people can see the author’s own latest posts…and so on

    Thanks

    if I don’t use multisite and Make every user have its own sitename and his own home page

    If you DO use Multisite, you still can have every user have it’s own domain name.

    I don’t understand your example, though, so let me explain how Multisite works. If you use Multisite, you get this:

    Main Site: domain.com
    User AAA has: aaa.domain.com
    User BBB has: bbb.domain.com

    User AAA can customize permalinks however he wants on aaa.domain.com and it doesn’t impact bbb.domain.com

    HOWEVER. If you go to domain.com/author/aaa you WILL NOT get a list of all AAA’s posts, unless you go extra and use a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/

    I’m sorry, i didn’t say cleayly.
    I mean is if I use single-site not multisite,how to implement user AAA owns a domain name like “AAA.blog.abc.com”,user BBB owns a domain name like “BBB.blog.abc.com”?and each user is best to have a homepage.

    Thanks.

    I don’t know. You would need to ask this outside of the Multisite section 🙂 I can move this for you, if you want.

    Thanks for you help,please help me move it,Thank you very much.
