#3756: Multisite Buddypress - New Users, Sites, Admin Bar

 I am working on a move from a wordpress multisite to a new installation
 with wordpress/buddypress multisite. This is a new clean install. I am
 installing all plugins new and I am only importing content (posts,
 categories etc) form xml.

 Wordpress 1.3.2
 Buddypress 1.5.1

 I think I have narrowed it down to new users on a multisite that are
 created and then use the system generated password can not see the sites
 that they have ‘access’ to in the sites list on the admin bar or on the
 sites page. However if they go to the URL for the site (or the site’s
 admin) they have their appropriate level of access. I have found if they
 try and change their passwords through the front interface this does not
 fix the problem.

 I have found that as a work-around if a admin person comes in and changes
 their password in the admin section of the website they can then see their
 sites in both the admin bar and the sites page. While this work-around is
 OK for now I am going to have problems with this when I move to having the
 system allow new users to be created by other people (and for themselves)

 My Testing

 1. I had the users created when I imported the posts. I found that users
 who were created this way could not see the ‘my sites’ section of the
 admin bar and could not see any of the sites they were assigned to … so I
 deleted all the posts. Created the users from scratch … reimported the
 content … and it appeared all to work …


 2. One user I created using the create new user and it sent the email with
 the password. The user can see the core site but not the sub-site they
 have access to under their site list. They could access the subsites just
 not see them in the admin bar or on the ‘sites’ page

 3. I however did not find the case for another test user I created where I
 created the user, did not send the email and typed in the password into
 the admin section.

 4. I have tried another senario. If create a new user … do not send the
 email … and set the password in admin. They can access all sites

 5. I have completed another senario. If I create a new users … do not send
 the email. Have them go to the website to ‘reset the password’. They then
 follow the link in the email and use the new password. It then allows them
 to login and takes them to the sub-site admin .. but it does not show the
 site under the sites dropdown in the admin bar and when you go to the
 sites page it does not show the sub-site.

 This is a completely new user that has not accessed the site at all, has
 no posts assigned to it.

 I have also had the user try to change their own password and this did not
 change the admin bar problem or show the sites on the ‘sites’ page.

 6. I have found that with a new user if I create them in the admin, then
 set their password (but not tell them) … and then they go to forget
 password … and then log in … it all works perfectly.
