Just ran into an interesting one on one of our BP setups. Running BP 1.2.1 and wpmu 184.108.40.206. I’ve added a couple of users to the main blog as authors to make posts to the main site’s blog. They can access the dashboard from site/wp-admin/ and everything functions as expected there, but from their buddypress profiles they are not affiliated with the blog (it shows 0 blogs created) and when logged in to the site the blog is not listed from the top admin bar under ‘My Blogs’.
If I add the user as a site admin from /wp-admin/wpmu-options.php then the user has the blog listed in their profile and from My Blogs – but then of course it gives them full admin access to the installation.
Is it possible to add a user as an author to the main blog so that it affiliates them with the blog from their BP profile, but without having to give them full admin status?
