    Again, look at when this was posted. 4 months ago. How long is it going to take bbpress to get the user roles intregated? I would suggest somebody write a plugin or better yet, update the core to match the same user roles in wordpress 2.7 or bbpress is going to lose alot of users.

    bbpress 0.9.0.4 and wordpress 2.7 intregrate but bbpress doesn’t hanlde the roles at all. If a user gegisters through wordpress, all is good but if they register through bbpress, they get an “you don’t have permission to view this page” when they try to login to wordpress.

    I think this should be addressed asap, but as I’m ready through the forums, I see Sam or any other developer has addressed this issue at all. There are some .htaccess 301 redirects and a small code change you can make to redirect users from the bbpress registration page to the wordpress registration page, but in my humble opinion, one should not have to do this because the whole reason to use bbpress with wordpress was the fact that they intregrate.

    Bottom line…bbpress needs to update the user roles to that of wordpress user roles period.

    I have the exact same problem but even when they login to wordpress 2.7 they are shown “You don’t have permission to view this page”.

    I have to manually change their role to subscriber which is not ideal at all. It seems to me that bbPress should make a user who registers through the forum a “subscriber” in wordpress but it’s not. I think bbpress should have the same roles as wordpress to cut the confusion down. The whole purpose of using bbpress was because it intregated with wordpress but if it doen’t habdle the roles automatically, I may as well install phpbb or vbulletin.

    I love bbpress, but if I have to perform task manually, what is the benefit of using bbpress?

    Same problem here. The bbpress roles need to match those of wordpress roles. I played with this for hours to the point I’m ready to ditch bbpress and just install vbulletin or phpbb. I love the intregration though. Everything else works great except when user register through bbpress.
