Child User Accounts

  • Dan White



    I’m creating a site in which I’ll have employer accounts and employee accounts. Fundamentally, the accounts are the same. However, employer users have the ability to create/delete additional accounts (for employees). The accounts created by an employer will need to be be hooked to that employer’s accounts, in that the employer has the ability to delete that account.

    Another bonus I thought would be good: For every employer account, a private group is created with their business name. Any employee accounts they create will be added as members to the group.

    I think I’d like to do this in a plugin, but I don’t have any idea how to get started. I’m fairly new to both WP and BP, but a decent developer.

    Dan, I know it’s been a while but I was wondering if you ever found a solution for this. I have the exact same situation and was hoping to find somebody out there who has solved this problem.

    WordPress can’t handle “linked” user accounts like this. Multisite sort of lets you do this, but you’ll end up with a lot of seperate sites.
    Creating a group when a user is registered is much more simple, however. You could look at how the Welcome Pack plugin works and use it as a starting point for a custom plugin in your site.
