Re: WPMU 2.6 + bbPress 1.0 alpha – Keymaster issue

@ctsttom – In order for a user that was registered in WordPress to have any authority in bbPress, they need to have the option ‘bb_capabilities’ in their user metadata. This does not have anything to do with the role maps in bbPress. Those role maps only affect users that are registered within bbPress that need to have capabilities inside WordPress. I think you are having the same problem that I had – you need to go the other direction. You need a default capability in bbPress for a new user registration in WPMU.

There are two ways to do this:

1) go to your bbPress admin panel, drill into each new user that was registered in WordPress, edit their profile, and assign them a ‘User Type’

2) use my shiny new WordPress plugin that creates a default capability of ‘member’ in bbPress for users that are registered in WordPress

I would be interested in any feedback you have. There are two caveats to this plugin:

1) it does not handle any users registered in WordPress that existed before the plugin was activated, you’ll have to do that manually (but you get the idea and could handle this with a mass SQL)

2) there is no logic to determine which bbPress User Type to use, I just start with ‘member’ and assume that I’ll manually set admins/moderators, and further that everyone with a login should be able to post.

Let me know what you think!
