Call for beta testers!

I’ve been working a plugin to vastly improve the Mother Blog signup process. While I wouldn’t suggest using it on a production site just yet, it’s definitely ready for a wider set of eyes than just my own.

Download the plugin here: github.com/vcualtlab/motherblog.

Please post any issues and feedback on github!

##What does it do exactly?

If user is logged in and has blogs on your network:

  • Create select form of blogs owned by user on your network
  • Create the specified category on the child blog chosen by the user
  • Add the user to the mother blog with the role subscriber
  • Determine the URL for that category’s RSS feed
  • Add RSS feed to FeedWordPress

If user is not logged in and has blogs on your network:

  • Prompt user to login

If user does not have blogs on your network but would like one:

  • Provide signup link.

If user does not have blogs on your network, does not want one but has their own RSS feed:

  • Provide field for submission of custom RSS feed
  • Add RSS feed to FeedWordPress

If user does not have blogs on your network, does not want one, and does not have their own RSS feed:

  • Tell them they need a blog somewhere and prompt them to signup on your network
