Hello DMS Friends,
I apologize if this is not the correct place to post this. Please let me know if I should be posting this somewhere else.
I am being tasked with adding a staff intranet site as well as an owner/members only site to an existing brochure site. I am building it in a Multi Site install and I wondered if anyone had recommendations for making the members site password protected, but allow users to register for accounts that would be approved by an admin?
For the Intranet site, all staff will use a single username and password that account will only have subscribe permissions. The intranet will just be a place for notices and alerts, latest news... I think I have this site complete and working as intended.
However, in the Owner/Member site, each owner needs their own username and password. There are 33 owners/members. They will want to log in to get sales docs, performance stats, bylaws, and other resources...
I have now tried a few different plugins such as Login/Logout, Pie Register, More Privacy Options, and Peter's Login Redirect, but I keep running into issues.
The main issue being that when I set the site to 'Only visible to registered users' (using the More Privacy Options plugin), when you go to the site on the front end it displays the login page (as it should), but for users that haven't registered yet and click 'Register' for an account, the wp-signup.php is blank - No registration form.
So, I tried installing Pie Register to see if I could come up with a workaround for this, but that didn't work either. When I went to the main site that is visible to the public and tried to register for an account, I got the same blank wp-signup.php page.
Is this an issue with WP-Multi site or something in the way I have one site visible to the public, one site that only uses a single username/password, so no registrations, and then the other I want users to be able to register for access?
