Role mapping – is it supposed to be two way?
I have bbPress 0.9.0.2 fully integrated with WP 2.5.1 using shared DB and tables. Everything seems to be working fine, except that when users register on bbPress they are shown as having “no role for this blog” on the WP side.
Role mapping defined in bbPress is: WP-Administrator==bb-Administrator, WP-Editor==bb-Moderator, WP-Author==bb-Member, WP-Contributor==bb-Member, WP-Subscriber==bb-Member.
I was expecting somemone who signs up to bbPress (with the default Member role) to be given Subscriber status in WP. I can see that there is an ambiguity as to which WP role should be chosen for a bbPress Member, but I guessed the one with lowest privilege, i.e. Subscriber, would apply.
