Thanks for your reply, Al. I'm not sure that I followed the first bit. At
which checkbox should I look?

I have provided direct login links to each blog (or, in the new terminology,
site) with which the user is working, but this method did not seem to work
for him, for whatever reason.

We use each blog/site in the WPMU/WP3.0 installation to support a course
taught by our faculty, so it's important that they are able to update the
material in a self-service manner whenever possible.

I have some experience with PHP and WP plugins, but have not contributed to
the project, and am not sure how to best suggest and offer fixes to
perceived problems.
