UM in Multisite

This article describes the features of using the Ultimate Member plugin on a WordPress multisite installation.

Installation and activation

Plugins are installed for the entire network. There are two ways of plugin activation: network activation and single-site activation. Use network activation for the core plugin Ultimate Member. Use single-site activation for extensions.

The plugin creates pages and forms for each site. You may configure different fields, captions and styles for different sites.

Once users are registered on any site, their login credentials may be used to log in to other network sites.

Profile and data syncing

Users can view their profiles on any site. Users can edit their profiles on the site they used for registration. You may add existing users from the network to a certain site to let them edit their profiles on a certain site.

Changes in profile will be synced across all sites, except images (cover photo, profile photo, etc.) that are individual for each site.

Patch for the common registration and photos

You may use the extension Ultimate Member - Multisite to change the registration and uploading logic on multisite to use single registration and common uploads (cover photo, profile photo, etc.) for all sites in the network.

NOTE: This is a free extension created for the community. The Ultimate Member team does not provide any support for this extension.
