We are testing the following plugins: 1) batch create, 2) new blog templates, and 3) multisite privacy. We also use active directory to authenticate users. The multisite default privacy setting in our templates is "only allow logged in users to see all blogs".
Problem 1: When we create a batch of new users + sites, each site inherits the default privacy setting (i.e. public = -1), but it doesn't actually work unless we first edit the setting on each new site and save it again. The option to update all blogs also doesn't have any effect in this circumstance.
Problem 2: When a user logs on to his site, he is redirected to a URL that duplicates his site's slug, e.g. mydomain.com/mysite/mysite
Any answers or advice?
