    I want to check how the registration process works when you choose to register with no blog. As I am getting redirected to pages that don't exist. (404 errors)

    I just found http://filmjournal.net in the forums, 'ColinFilmJournal' has done a nice job with the register/login process. But you still get the 'You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.' message when you log in.

    Some of my problems were fixed with the NoCaps.php plugin found here

    On my installation of WPMU I noticed the 'Allow Users to Register' was missing from dashboard/options/general, (compared to wordpress single installation) - but that was fixed with this

    Blogates is lovely, nice work. My humble MU site is far from this...

    I notice you have avoided the 'User Registration' problems, by getting every user to create a blog... So even if you click 'just a username', it still directs you to create a blog.

    Off topic, is the 'green bar' at the top of your screen a plug-in or hack, it's very useful when u have multiple accounts.

    I've been working on the FilmJournal.net login process and hopefully it's a bit better now. Feedback and comments are always appreciated :)

    Colin, you have the create blog/user working exactly how I imagined it would. I would be really interested in how you did this.

    I created an account on FilmJournal.net without a blog, after activation it re-directed me back to your home page and not to the "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page". Did you use NoCaps.php to solve this?

    I like how you can add a blog, even if your logged in as a user with no blog. I also like how the add blog page lists your other blogs... Is this something you added to wp-signup.php?

    My only feedback about the login process is to do with semantics, your site is called film journal, which consists of journals whereas the signup refers to blogs throughout.

    Altogether a really nice site. I find it so useful seeing how others have implemented WPMU.

    Didn't do anything fancy.

    1. I did use NoCaps.php to resolve the problem with it directing to the login page for non-blog users. I installed this into the mu-plugins directory and it sorted my issues.

    2. The standard wp-signup.php page detects whether the user has a blog or not and gives them the option to add one. Nothing fancy there. In the header I just check for a $user_ID to determine whether the user is logged in or not and display the appropriate options (Login / Logout etc).

    As for the Blog/Journal thing - I agree and I'll be removing the 'Blog' references when I get a chance :)

    Thanks for the comments - they're always helpful.
