Automatically add new users to each site in your WordPress network.

== Description ==

Running a WordPress network? You no longer need to manually add new users to each of your sites.

With this plugin, users are assigned a default role for each of your sites. You determine the default role for each site under the **Multisite User Management** section of the *Super Admin | Options* page.

You can assign different roles for each site or keep a site private by assigning no role.

== Installation ==

1. Upload the entire `/multisite-user-management/` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory.
1. Activate the plugin.
1. Navigate to the **Multisite User Management** section of the *Super Admin | Options* page. 
1. Set default roles for each of your sites.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Does the plugin require a multisite installation? =

Yes, WordPress takes care of the default role on non-multisite installations.

= Why aren't all my sites listed on the options page? =

Only blogs marked as public and flagged as safe (mature flag off) are included in the list.

= Does this plugin assign the default role to existing users? =

Yes, existing users will receive the default role. If you change the default role, all of your users with the old default role will receive the new default role.

= Will these roles be allocated to new users registering with a new site? =

Yes, users registering with a site will receive all the existing default roles. 

The new site will not have a default role until it is manually set. Once set, all existing users will receive that role for the new site.

= Why are new users registering with a site not given the default role for the dashboard site? =

This is by design in the WordPress core.

= Where can I make feature requests, get support & report bugs? =

Submit an Issue on the plugin's [Github page](

Or for a slower response, make a post in the [WordPress support forum](

== Screenshots ==

1. **Super Admin Options** - Super admins can choose the default role for each site.
