Multisite User Role Sync


Say goodbye to the headache of managing users in a multisite network! Now when a user visits a blog in the network, the user will be added to the blog with your specified roles automatically.

Here is how this plugin works:

  1. When a user visits a site, this plugin checks if the user is already a member of the site.
  2. If the user is a member, do nothing.
  3. Otherwise add the user to the site with the user\’s role in blog #1, or a role specified by you. [Sync Role]
  4. If the user is not an existing member of blog #1, the user will be added with a role specified by you. [Default Role]
  5. When a user\’s role is updated, the user\’s new role can be updated across all the bogs the user is member of. [Role Update]



You can install this plugin directly from your WordPress dashboard:

  1. Go to the Plugins menu and click Add New.
  2. Search for Multisite User Role Sync.
  3. Click Install Now.
  4. Activate the plugin.

    Alternatively, you can download the plugin and install manually:

  5. Upload the entire /multisite-user-role-sync/ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  6. Activate the plugin.


  1. Navigate to Network Admin > Settings > Network Settings > Multisite User Role Sync page.

  2. Specify a Sync Role and a Default Role.

After testing, I found it is compatible with a lot user role management plugins: Members: User Role Editor: Multisite User Management: thanks a lot!

The only thing I would love to be added to this plugin, is an option to automatically sync users to all sites after they sign up for one (before they even visit the others).
