Change the default ‘Member’ role title?

  • Just looking to change the default ‘Member’ forum role title to something more appropriate for my forum. What file would that be contained in?

    Changing the ‘name’ value (line 125) from your bb-includes/capabilities.php file would be enough

    Worked like a charm, thanks so much.

    No need to change core files. Just make a file called user_types.php with the following code in it and put it in your my-plugins/ folder.

    <?php

    /*

    Plugin Name: Change 'Member' Label

    Plugin URI: http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/503

    */

    function change_user_type_labels( $label, $type ) {

    if ( 'member' == $type )

    return 'Kazoo Corps Draftee';

    return $label;

    }

    add_filter( 'get_user_type_label', 'change_user_type_labels', 10, 2 );

    ?>

    I made another approach to fit this need and used it on my forum.

    function ChangeRoleDisplayName() {
    global $bb_roles;
    $bb_roles->role_names['keymaster'] = "Toilet Cleaner";
    [...]
    }

    add_action('bb_got_roles', 'ChangeRoleDisplayName', 10, 0);
    ?>

    The complete code is in role-display-name.php.
