Re: This forum thread:

My site is at it is latest buddypress and latest WP versions. It has a modded theme, but even using BP default and deactivating all plugins other than BP, issue is still there.

Problem 1:

If a new member signs up at and DOES create a blog on sign-up, the problems are:

  1. The "My Sites" dropdown shows two blog links,one is the blog they created, but the other is the main blog ( even though they do not have access to it.
  1. In their profile page it says they have 2 sites, again linking to the blog they created AND the main site. PNG example:

Problem 2:

If they sign-up and do NOT create a blog on joining, they then cannot as the "my sites" menu is not displayed to them, giving them no way to create a blog.

So it is a two-part linked issue, depending on whether they create a blog on sign-up or not.

To reproduce:

  1. Create an account and create blog on signup
  2. My sites dropdown will shown own site and the erronous access to the main site dashboard
  3. Go to the user profile page and again see erronous access listed.
  1. Create account and do not create a blog at same time.
  2. My Sites menu does not exist.

The first issue should be solved with r5338.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The second issue is not a bug. If users want to create a new site, they can do so by visiting the Sites Directory and clicking Create Site at the top. If you would like to create a special navigation item in the admin bar that allows users to create new sites even when they don't have one already, you may do so with a plugin.
