Create User With Password Multisite


This plugin extends the default functionality of WordPress Multisite by adding the ‘password’ field to the user registration screen. This then allows Super Admins to set the password for each user during the user registration process.

Key features

  • Simple to use, no setup required
  • Super Admins can allocate user passwords

How to use

  • Visit: Users -> Add New on a site within the network

Password does not appear in the network administration, but in a single site administration.

So for example this is a correct location:

This is an incorrect location:


  • Preview of the new functionality in the CMS


1) Either install the plugin from WordPress repository directly, or you can manually download it and then upload the entire ‘create-user-with-password-multisite’ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.

2) Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

Seems to work great but no localization and would be great to be able to change the texts for emails. Still, very useful plugin!

rating updated -- originally i thought this had solved issue to allow site admins to add users but it doesn't deal with the email trails wpms generates for adding/updating users and generates extra emails. Specifically email below is always generated from create-user-with-password-multisite.php (other emails generated as well) Dear User, \nThank you for the registration. Please check the email address provided for login details. \n--The Team @ \n Any emails generated still come from superadmin not the local site admin. All this is very confusing for my users (me too!) and I think ultimately problem is with wpms . the plugin gets near to providing a solution but needs more work to make it seamless. meanwhile I'm going to use this plugin to add users but use a 'stop emails' plugin to disable sending any emails.

You should make it clear this works as well for regular WordPress. Use case scenario where your plugin fixed a problem for me: To test WooCommerce with PayPal, we use PayPal's sandbox, which creates by default two buyer+facilitator test email accounts, derived from your actual address. These emails do not exist, but you have to make test payments with the buyer. Your plugin was great to create a test user account in the dashboard, with fictive email. Click on 'don't notify the user by email' and set its password. Otherwise, with no password, you would not be able to use this account.

I misunderstood the purpose of this plugin. Still, it is everything I said below: Thank you for a great plugin! Nothing to setup or comprehend. No zillions of settings options and extra crap. No user input needed. Perfect. Cheers!
