Members showing in WordPress but not BBPress forums help

  • dice2dice



    Before installing BBPress I had around 45 members of my site that registered via WordPress.

    I’ve had new members since I installed BBPress but only some show up as members. If you browse to the members section of my site it says there are 18 members. There was 16 members this morning and 10 new ones have registered today but they BBPress forums are not counting them as members.

    My website is If you click on members it states there is 18 but there are a lot more than 18 so why is it counting them up wrong?

    I’m stuck. If you have any suggestions or need more information please respond. I’d love to hear from you.

    Many thanks, Dice

    Gosh this is so frustrating.

    When I click on ‘WangGuard Users’ it states I have 89 verified members. How does WangGuard connect with BBPress?

    The 89 definitely includes members who registered on my site before I installed BBPress.

    I’ve found a tool to import members it is here…..

    But it doesn’t seem to include WordPress members. It is just members of other forums software.

    A solution might be to uninstall BBPress and install something that works better but if I uninstall BBPress will it delete my members?

    I see others using Maybe that would work better?

    Open up your WordPress users admin eg.

    I presume this is because your existing WordPress users before you installed bbPress do not have a ‘forum role’, set these users as ‘Participants’ and I think you will be good to go.

    There is some more detailed role info here:



    Stephen thank you for your reply.

    I seem to have done this already today, though not intentionally, I have been working on resolving this for the past 6 hours.

    The image below confirms that I now have 91 participants. But if you click on my ‘Members’ on my home page it states there are now 20 members (link here ).

    I believe ‘Members’ comes from Buddypress and not from BBPress so I’ve been wondering if there is a disconnect there? Maybe I haven’t set it up properly.

    I’ve looked through a lot of forums and posts both on BBpress, WordPress and several other websites bit I’ve not seen anyone else posting this issue.

    Thanks, Dice

    Forum Participants

    I’m not familiar enough with the way BuddyPress works its ‘members’.

    Jump over to and see if they can give you some pointers.



    Thanks Stephen, I will try there.
