Using Common Login

I see that there are a few instances where this plugin could be a bit confusing especially when it comes to new user registrations and they username they are trying to register already exists.

How about developing something that will allow the users to register & login from a master site, just like Yahoo or Google does. For e.g. if they login to a site 1, then they will be logged in to all the sites in the network and if they logout, they will be logged out from all the sites in the network.

Alternatively, it can also be made that the plugin won't accept duplicate registrations at all.

In my opinion, sync concept can be easily misused or abused if its not properly setup. For e.g. someone may want to register with the admin account to hack the site.

    Sorry just wanted to ask:

    How do you envisage that?

    You must create a master site and subsites, then add a security key.

    So whichever site they register on, they would only be a subscriber not a site admin.

    Take care.

    These are just mu opinions and nothing serious allegations :wink:

    For e.g. if some one comes to know of the administrator username and then tries to register on the master site with that name again.

    The resulting username could possibly have the admin access possibly.

    That is fine :slight_smile:

    For e.g. if some one comes to know of the administrator username and then tries to register on the master site with that name again.

    When set up and syncing correctly there should be no issue. You can select to prevent overwriting of accounts as well.

    Thanks.
