[patch] Adding authors to admin blog

Reported by: welshpixie Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: major
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords: blog author
Cc: tedmann, boonebgorges@…


Using BP 1.2.1 and WPMU

I've added a couple of users to the main blog as authors to make posts to the main site's blog. They can access the dashboard from site/wp-admin/ and everything functions as expected there, but from their buddypress profiles they are not affiliated with the blog (it shows 0 blogs created) and when logged in to the site the blog is not listed from the top admin bar under 'My Blogs'.

If I add the user as a site admin from /wp-admin/wpmu-options.php then the user has the blog listed in their profile and from My Blogs - but then of course it gives them full admin access to the installation.

Is it possible to add a user as an author to the main blog so that it affiliates them with the blog from their BP profile, but without having to give them full admin status?

I can attest that this happens when you add users to any blogs on the site. If they weren't a member of the blog when registering with BP, the blogs won't show up under their "My Blogs" list.
