"User not added. User is already registered."

  1. I am attempting to add an existing user to my blog, but this error appears.
    My list of Users does not already contain them.
    I am not inviting them to join, I am going to "Add User from Community".


    The blog I need help with is

  2. Hi. You are adding someone who is already a user? Perhaps you are using an email address that is already associated to one of your blog's users.


  3. I have this problem too, of this message appearing when I think it shouldn't.

    My context is slightly different. I have just changed the name of my blog address, and when I looked to double check to see if my co-administrator had retained his permissions after the transfer, he had vanished from my user list. So I tried to (re)add him as an administrator, and got this message. This has a buggy smell to me.

    Not a great time for the happiness team to be on holidays....!

    Any ideas about workarounds??

  4. I tagged this thread so that staff takes a look.

  5. Thanks. Us Montrealers need to stick together...;-) (well, I'm an expat, actually, but the town kind of sticks with you....)

  6. bayanimills, is the user added to the blog despite the error? Also, what is the URL of the blog you're referring to?

    heatherstark, are you able to successfully re-add your co-admin?

  7. My co-admin has now showed up in my user list without my doing anything further except fretting about it.

    So it could be that the previous settings

    transferred over. It's just that they weren't transferred over IMMEDIATELY, as my own settings were.

    Either that or someone fixed something!

    Either way all seems to be well. (Thanks.)

  8. I am having the same trouble.

    I have 2 WordPress blogs set to private with different URLs of course.

    A user joined the first blog fine. Now he wants to join the second. When I "add user from community", I get the error message "User not added, User already registered."

    I have activated other people who have joined both blogs in the past without a problem.

    It's kind of an urgent problem.

    The first blog is

    The second blog is

    The user e-mail in question is [email redacted]

    Like I said, he joined the Forum. Now we need to activate him to Pro.

    Many thanks for any help.
