#16685 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

New MultiSite users aren't assigned a site.

Basically when a new user signs up on a MultiSite install, there is no default 'site' they're assigned to anymore. It used to be the case (in 3.0.5) that you got kicked to the main blog but now there's nothing.

Is this an intended change? I don't see any harm to it just yet, since you can still comment etc and use BuddyPress etc.

Yes -- the global dashboard concept was removed -- #14696. It's not "nothing" now -- you should end up at wp-admin/user/.

They seem to. Though now I'm noting I have 241 users listed under network/users.php and 249 under WP-admin/users.php (I'll have to dig into that!)

The "problem" is that even after commenting on a site and becoming subscribers, they don't have a SITE listed in network/users.php, which logically they should, shouldn't they? Before, if you commented on a sub site you became a member there-of, and it showed on the network. Is that now only for ... staff? For lack of a better term.

Is there a way to activate the previous function to add a user to a default blog with a default role? We are using this to allow new user to create posts (reviews) without our interaction.

You don't get added, BUT there's a plugin you can use if you need it: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multisite-user-management/

I'm flagging this as invalid :) Works as designed and has a plugin to extend if needed. Perfect.
