#25166 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

New users are automatically subscribed to the main blog

Reported by: conner_bw's profile conner_bw Owned by: nacin's profile nacin
Milestone: 3.6.1 Priority: normal
Severity: major Version: 3.6
Component: Multisite Keywords: has-patch commit
Focuses: Cc:



  • Install WordPress 3.6 Multi-Site
  • Enable "Both sites and user accounts can be registered."
  • Logout

Steps to reproduce:

  • As a new user, sign up for a new site (Aka: Gimme a site!)
  • Successfully go through the process


  • User is not a Subscriber to main blog, rather she an Admin to her own blog.


  • User is a Subscriber to main blog, and and Admin to her own blog.


"Expected" was happening in 3.4, and 3.5.

This issue started happened when we upgraded to 3.6

I did a trace and add_action( 'wpmu_activate_user', 'add_new_user_to_blog', 10, 3 ); and
add_new_user_to_blog() never gets called. This is where the desired action happens.

Thank you for your consderation

I traced this to [23307] for #15627. AFAICT that change is invalid since delete_user_option() will add $wpdb->prefix by default, so we went from deleting wp_capabilities to wp_wp_capabilities (assuming the default prefix).

I think we should revert and re-open that ticket. It seems to me that the problem described in #15627 is about using wp_insert_user() and the capabilities removal in wpmu_create_user() was working okay.
