User Roles

When a user creates a site using pro sites, they are automatically assigned a user role of admin for their own website.

Is there a way for these same users to become a user of my main primary site with an assigned user role.


User A - Signs up for a free blog - Is assigned as a subscriber on my site.
User B - Signs up to a premium pro site - Is assigned as a 'member' on my site.

I can then give User B additional privileges and access to areas of my site that only members are allowed...

    Hi Brett ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    Firstly, sorry for my late reply and all the problems it may have caused.

    Can you try add this code to your theme functions.php

    add_action('prosites_before_checkout_page', 'update_user_role');
    function update_user_role() {
        if( !is_user_logged_in() || is_super_admin() || empty( $_GET['bid'] ) ) {
        global $current_site;
        //If current user is admin
        $curr_blog = $_GET['bid'];
        $blog_admin = get_user_by( 'email', get_blog_option($curr_blog, 'admin_email'));
        //Check if pro user
        if( function_exists('is_pro_user') && is_pro_user( $blog_admin->ID ) ) {
            add_user_to_blog( $current_site->blog_id, $blog_admin->ID, 'editor' );

    When an administrator visits the Pro Sites page, if he/she is a "pro user", will get the "editor" role on main site. This code will work for all the users, existing and new ones.

    Cheers, Luís
