New user being added to all sites

I added a new user to a newly created site within my multi-site environment.

It appears that it was by default added as an admin to all my sites. I then had to go in as Super Admin and remove her from the sites I didn't want her to have access to.

Is this normal behavior for adding an Admin User to a new site in MU environment ? If so, is there a plugin for that :wink:

What sayeth the group ?

    Hello there Jay,

    Thanks for posting on the forums :slight_smile:

    Its strange that adding a user to the subsite made her the admin on all the sites.

    Can you tell me the steps you followed ? I just followed the below steps and was just fine.

    Visited the subsite I wanted to add the user on
    Dashboard >> Users >> Add new >> Add New user >> Entered username, password and selected the role as an admin and then I was able to view that user under Users >> All users on that site.

    I checked for other sites, but that user was not there as an admin.

    Are you seeing anything different ? I would like to have a closer look if you are.

    Please advise.

    Cheers, PC
