add_role on my site and influence of bbpress

  • sagive


    i need to create a new top of user and want to give it “read=>true” capability only…


    $cpar_capabilities = array(
        'read'	=> true
    add_role('course_participant', 'Course Participant', $cpar_capabilities);

    would this mean he / she cant publish on the forums and if so how can i add the right capabilities so those user can participate in the forums but have read only permission
    or any type of other permissions on my site?

    bbpress has a separate set of capabilities, so you can set permissions for the wordpress part of your site totally separately to the capabilities for bbpress.


    and if needbe

    Custom Capabilities

    the separate bbpress dynamic caps have been very frustrating for me, i had actually been able to rig something up as the OP described a few years ago with user role editor plugin, but it was broken by the caps change in 2.2 🙁

    Roles and Capabilities in bbPress 2.2

    an interface to set granular permissions per forum by user or user role for bbpress would be a HUGE boon, this is a core feature of all other forum software i am aware of

    otherwise, here is an article on customizing bbpress dynamic caps, haven’t tried this one yet

    i have seen robin’s new plugin too, might do almost what i need but i haven’t had a chance to test it yet, but ultimately my goal would be the ability to create different forums for different customized (custom code or URE etc) member roles which are auto-assigned by s2 member

    I think this is a WordPress question, not bbPress.

    Nice to see you here @ramiy 😉
