I recently added a network to my multi-network wordpress install (that is, a single install with multiple subdomain networks, each with multiple subdirectory sites).
Although everything appears normal on the new site from the front end and network admin view, any users I add to the site automatically get redirected to
/wp-admin/user upon login. This shows only the WordPress news widget and the Profile menu.
If I manually navigate back to
/wp-admin, the full dashboard becomes available, but the redirect is unacceptably inconvenient and hard to diagnose.
A few details that are unique and likely relevant:
- When creating the new subdomain, I first created a blog on an existing network, then manually went in and modified
wp_blogsto promote it to its own subdomain
- I recently upgraded to 3.9.2
- This only affects the new subdomain. All existing sites and networks are fine (ruling out plugin conflicts or a botched upgrade in my eyes)
I am relatively certain this problem is probably just one or two database rows away from a fix, but laboriously comparing the values of
wp_*_options for a working network to this one reveals nothing different.
