Displaying User role beside their replies

    This is such an obvious feature (in my opinion) so that it is clear on forums who are the admins, moderators, and members.

    I decided to see if I could work out how to add it to my forums using my custom theme for bbPress 2.1.

    I managed to get it to work after a bit of experimentation and many errors by adding this:

    <?php

    $reply_user_id = bbp_get_reply_author_id();

    global $wp_roles;

    $reply_user = new WP_User( $reply_user_id );

    $roles = $reply_user->roles;

    $role = array_shift($roles);

    printf( isset($wp_roles->role_names[$role]) ? translate_user_role($wp_roles->role_names[$role] ) : false);

    ?>

    into loop-single-reply.php.

    Hope this is helpful to anyone else trying to do this.

    I believe it was a feature on the standalone version of bbPress so why was it dropped on the plugin version? Is this likely to be re-added at any point?

    I’m very happy to have found this – very useful.

    Question – any suggestions on how to adjust the code to where subscribers can also view the role of other users.

    Thanks for any help.

    Got it – This seems to work for showing the first role:

    <?php
    $user = new WP_User( bbp_get_reply_author_id() );
    echo $user->roles[0];
    ?>

    bbPress should do this now by default like this site has it.

    I have found the solution. I pasted the code from NickMackz into the area of the IP adress, which was only visible for admins.

    alright but by default it does show.

    in the default file of loop-single-reply.php

    you will see this

    <div class="bbp-reply-author">
    
    		<?php do_action( 'bbp_theme_before_reply_author_details' ); ?>
    
    		<?php bbp_reply_author_link( array( 'sep' => '<br />', 'show_role' => true ) ); ?>
    
    		<?php if ( bbp_is_user_keymaster() ) : ?>
    
    			<?php do_action( 'bbp_theme_before_reply_author_admin_details' ); ?>
    
    			<div class="bbp-reply-ip"><?php bbp_author_ip( bbp_get_reply_id() ); ?></div>
    
    			<?php do_action( 'bbp_theme_after_reply_author_admin_details' ); ?>
    
    		<?php endif; ?>
    
    		<?php do_action( 'bbp_theme_after_reply_author_details' ); ?>
    
    	</div><!-- .bbp-reply-author -->

    this is the code that shows it , hence the show role = true

    <?php bbp_reply_author_link( array( 'sep' => '<br />', 'show_role' => true ) ); ?>
