cannot set wordpress role when user signs in through bbpress
I have my wordpress and bbpress databases integrated, but cannot seem to set it up so that a user who signs up via bbpress is assigned a role on wordpress. I’ve played around with the User Role Map found in Settings – wordpress integration, but nothing seems to help. It does work the other way though – if a user signs up via wordpress, they are assigned the role in bbpress as I indicated via the role map.
Honestly, I don’t even understand how it’s supposed to work. It seems very one way. At no point does the map even ask what role I would like to assign someone in wordpress if they have a particular role in bbpress.
What I’d like to do is have everyone who signs up be given the role of Author. If this is possible, I’d really appreciate any tips on how to accomplish it. Thanks!
