I did (I think) verify that the capabilities entry is being posted to wp_usermeta as a result of bbsync. If I disable the bbsync plug-in and post, a row with capabilities (without the bb_ prefix) is not added to wp_usermeta.
Yeah, I agree and you’re probably right. I think it’s an issue with bb being all confused when it’s loaded after wp, and not finding capabilities it assigns the defaults but with the wrong meta_key … or sumthin’?
Is the entry created every time you post? Is it only created if it doesn’t yet exist (or has been deleted)? Repeatability is where the problem is, since everyone seems to get different problems and I haven’t had that one.
