I updated WP to 3.1, and one issue my organization (which uses WP in Network Mode) is having is the Add New User page in wp-admin is now much less detailed — before it was more like profile.php, with the ability to set username, password and much more. Now, it’s only username, password and role.
Any idea how to revert this back? Our organization generally creates accounts for people instead of vice-versa?
The old user registration form is not compatible with the new one due to the new multi site user roles introduced.
While it does involve an extra step the new users profile can be edited once the user is created.
There are also plugins available that extend the add new user options.
Gravity Forms has a user registration add on that allows you to customize a user registration form and WPMUdev.org has a Add New User plugin that extends the form in admin.
No you should be able to create the user and edit the user on a network basis not site basis at least that is how it shows on mine.
