User management, WP and BBP
I am setting up a web site that has two main groups of users: The (WP) blog editors, and the readers, who are supposed to be able to make contributions through comments or in the forums. The registered WP users can use the bbPress forum seamlessly, however, there’s a bit of a problem on the other end, with the users who first register themselves in bbPress. It seems that when someone registers as a bbPress user, they are also automatically a WP user. This would be fine and dandy, if only their user level was set low enough to keep them out of the WP backend. But it doesn’t work like that. I’ve set the default user role for new users to “Subscriber”, but something in the communication between bbP and WP goes wrong, and they are granted some mutation of the administrator role instead: They aren’t able to publish, or edit posts from users with a higher level, but they can edit each others drafts, and they can change both their own and others user levels and passwords. Or edit the templates.
So what I want is a way for registered WP-users to flow freely into bbPress, but not vice versa. I don’t want the forums users in the WP dashboard area at all. I’ve tried the bbpress-integration.php-plugin, but it doesn’t seem to make any difference, its only option is to set the bbPress prefix to bb_ (the bbP-tables already has this).
