Registering Users and Blog Subscriptions

Update to Bulk Importing Users post:

The bulk importer helps expedite the registration process – by default it adds the user list to whatever blog ‘account’ was used to upload the users – this means it’s performing two functions:

  1. adding the users to the blogs.wrdsb.ca domain
  2. registering those users with roles to the blog of origin

This means if you have a blog at blogs.wrdsb.ca/blog_1 and you bulk upload the users, they will be added as ‘users’ to the blogs.wrdsb.ca website, and subscribed to the blogs.wrdsb.ca/blog_1 account.  If you have a second blog blogs.wrdsb.ca/blog_2 and you wish to subscribe those users to this different account, you cannot bulk upload the users as they have already been added to the blogs.wrsdb.ca domain ‘at large’ – what you need to do is invite them to the second blog as subscribers. This invitation process is done user-by-user and at the time of this writing has no bulk subscribe feature.

I am working on resolving this issue.
