Roles and Capabilities Restrictions
Previously, if we wanted to modify the roles and capabilities of end users, we would use one of the several plugin offerings. With the folding of roles into bbPress changing those capabilities and access, it seems as if our pervious granular control is now removed. I understand the reasons, and I’m also feeling quite hamstrung on my choices.
Previously I had two user levels that are similar to the updated Participant role. One allowed for addition and edits of publicly available forums. The second one allowed for not only publicly available forums, but also private ones as well. The new Participant role fills that latter role, but now I no longer have the user identity for the former role.
It appears that I can’t change the capabilities of the bundled roles, nor am I able to create new roles that will play nice with bbPress. What are my options around this? Will there be tools to add new roles or change the capabilities?
Thanks for any input.
