Creating universal profiles across a blog network (2 posts)

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    If I had a network of 100 blogs, how could I create an outside profile that could follow the user around the network. Could I create a login system that references an outside network and stores their profile information in an outside database.

    For example if I wanted to create a community around a blog network with more robust profiles.

    Thanks again.

    The users in a mu install are shared, so user information is common across all blogs on a single installation. You can extend the details in profiles through the wp_usermeta (update_usermeta() function etc) table as well if you want (or custom tables if you want to do something more extensive).

    Also check out Cimy User Extra Fields (a plugin) which the author is in the process of making completely mu-compatible.
