WPMU Default User Role


When users are first created, they are automatically assigned to the primary blog. But, you may want to set them up on multiple blogs by default. This is especially helpful if you’re using bbpress or other forum software where the user needs a role on that blog in order to participate. This plugin allows site admins to set the default role on as many blogs as desired for all new users.
