MU / pro site probleem whit users, mainsite/subsites

Is there any way to make this:

Mainsite:
have the user that only can enter content on the mainsite (like forums ect) / admins can register there subsites.

Subsite:
user from the main site cannot login the subsite, there for they need to register at the subsite.
I tried membership plugin and some other wpmu plugins to get this to work but still not working.

I tried simple-press to, as forum in the subsite.
but simple press redirect registrants to the wp-signup.php so the users end up registering at the mainsite olso the subsite wont see the registrants in the subsite and they will end up in mainsite.

what's the best solution to get this to work?

1. how can users register at the subsite so admin will see this user in his dashboard.
2. close out users from the mainsite, so they cannot enter the subsites. unless they register at subsite. subsite and content must stay public. except the forum where the user need to register for.

was working on this for 10 hours today but still dint find anything good yet. so if any one have the solution i will be very thankful.

    Hey there,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    have the user that only can enter content on the mainsite (like forums ect) / admins can register there subsites.

    I am not sure what you want but if you are looking for something that one user should only be able to post on the forums and only those with admin role on the main site can create subsite, then you should use Membership plugin using which you can restrict which user level can create a blog on your site. You can make that level private and manually manage it.

    With Just WordPress multisite and Prosites, its not possible out of the box as they are meant to monetize your network so anyone can come along, create a site and pay for it to maintain it.

    user from the main site cannot login the subsite, there for they need to register at the subsite.

    Again its not something WordPress allows out of the box as the registrations are done on the main site of the network.

    You will need to use something like : http://wordpress.org/plugins/multisite-user-management/ to allow no role on the main site and http://wordpress.org/plugins/join-my-multisite/ to allow registration on subsite.

    2. close out users from the mainsite, so they cannot enter the subsites. unless they register at subsite. subsite and content must stay public. except the forum where the user need to register for.

    This does not make much sense for me as close out from main site so they can't enter subsite ?

    Can you elaborate please ?

    Hey PC,

    Thanks for you`re fast response.

    I solved the most of the problems I described above.

    Now I'm only looking a way for sub site owners, to register new users.
    so they can keep track on who's registering on there site.
    as I understand main site users that are registered on the main site, can just enter
    the sub sites under the same user name and password.
    whit out registering on the sub site.

    These I wane block for the sub site owners so they are forced to register on the sub site, but only for forums ect where they need to login, not for the FrontPage or text on the sub site.

    As you stated above, I will take a look at:
    You will need to use something like : http://wordpress.org/plugins/multisite-user-management/ to allow no role on the main site and http://wordpress.org/plugins/join-my-multisite/ to allow registration on subsite.

    I think join-my-multisite will fix this problem.

    I will keep you updated, if this is what I was looking for.

    again thanks
