user roles and ability to work with personal blogs

hey. i’m experiencing an issue where I create new blogs in my multisite with a user, yet that user cannot post to their blog unless I give them super-admin access. Where is the setting to allow users to work with their own blog, but not with the overall network?

    Hi Griffin,

    If your users are subscribers/Contributor for blogs, they can’t publish anything. I’ve tested this and if I add user on the subsite he can’t publish anything.

    But when super admin adds new blog with user email (Network Admin -> Sites -> Add new) – this user is created as admin for his subsite. And this user can do anything on this particular subsite.

    This is how it should be working – this is default setting.

    How do you add blogs with users?

    Can I take a look on your site? You can grant support access via WPMU DEV > Support > Support Access > Grant Access.

    Kind regards,
