    Hello Leah,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    Please take a look at this article here:


    It explains the "terminology" and "what is what" and shows how to setup and use Pro Sites plugin. It should help you go through the basic setup.

    If you come across any additional questions/doubts or issues, let me know here please and I'll be happy to assist.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Leah!

    I want to use the Prosite features but have them pay through Woocommerce not Marketpress or other payment modules. How can I do this?

    The Pro Sites plugin does not require "MarketPress" or any other payment modules but it cannot take payments via WooCommerce either. It has it's built in payment gateways: PayPal and Stripe (and also supports "manual payments"). These only can be used with it. Any other payment solution would have to be custom developed so in case you need such solution, you might want to ask for custom development on our "Jobs & Pros" job board (please note: no WPMU DEV staff involved!) here:


    What I really just need with the Prosites plugin is just the ability for users to get
    AUTOMATIC Wordpress Site creation on my Multi-site network.

    A default setup of Pro Sites will work pretty much that way. All you'd need to do after activating the plugin would be to:

    - go to the "Network Admin -> Pro Sites -> Payment Gateways" page and configure payment gateway(s)

    - go to the "Network Admin -> Pro Sites -> Levels" page and add some "packages" - names and prices

    - go to the "Network Admin -> Pro Sites -> Premium Plugins" and "Network Admin -> Pro Sites -> Premium Themes" pages and decide which plugins and which themes should be made available for those packges.

    That should then work out of the box.

    Then, to make this process even better, you would want to install in addition the "New Blog Templates" plugin:


    Please note: it's not plugin about the "design", it's about entire "pre-made" pages. Basically, you create a site on your Multisite network and using New Blog Templates plugin you "mark it" as a "blog template". You can create as many of them as you wish.

    Then a user that comes to the signup page selects his/her "package" (Pro Sites) and a "template" (New Blog Templates) and entire site is automatically created - including selected theme and its configuration, selected plugins (along with configuration) and even predefined content if you wish. I think that'd suit your requirements then.

    And automatically
    assign them a user role or group in the process.

    When a user/visitor signs up for a new site and that site is created, this user automatically becomes and administrator (has an "administrator" user role assigned) for that site. That's fully automated process.

    Best regards,

    Hello Leah!

    A visitor (not logged in, not registered user) that creates the site will only be an admin of his/her own site.

    A logged in (registered, logged in user) that creates the site will still be the user of the site he previously registered for and also an admin of his/her own site.

    However, if you for example want each of these users to automatically become, let's say, authors on your network's main site, you would need some additional plugin for that. This one, even though it wasn't updated for quite some time already, should do the job:


    A similar, though not "that automated" plugin would be this one:


    There's only a single user base on Multisite install so access credentials would be the same.

    Best regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
