[resolved] WPMS install will not let me assign user roles? (5 posts)

    So i installed WPMS 3.5 on TruthBroadcastNetwork.com and when people are joining the site it is making them users of the whole network where though under network admin i can choose to make them superusers which i do NOT want to do, i cannot assign them various roles on Truth Broadcast Network like author and such.

    Did i mess up the install? It is a subdomain install and i think i did everything right is there a setting somewhere? I need people posting on the site but not having full control over the network.

    thx, D2NWO

  2. You didn't mess it up, you're looking in the wrong place :) You can't assign user roles on the network admin, you have to go to each site and visit /wp-admin/user-new.php for that site.

    You can add users there to the site and assign them roles.

    thx for responding i have seen you are very active helping people.

    are you saying i need to modify the contents of a file manually? if so in what way, is there an article or something on that? when i go to the individual site through the dashboard i am the only person there, there are users on the network admin but not the individual site. is there a plugin or something that will make their signing up put them as users for the individual site or some way to automate this process?

    ok i may have resolved the issue using the following plugin it lets me assign users to sites through the dashboard but you still have to do them one by one...

    ok better yet is this one which gives you the drop down box to select roles...
