New users suddenly no longer registered as “participants”
I have a new website/forum set up at https://freremanu.com/forum/ which has been working fine until the last few days. When I set up test users using the registration form on the side of the forum page, it would correctly set the user roles as “Subscriber/Participant” – but since about a week ago, it is only setting them as “Subscriber”.
Even if then go and manually change the forum role to “participant”, when I sign in with the test user it says the forum page is “Not Found”.
I have tried disabling all plugins & checking, but this makes no difference.
Whether I register through the Forum widget (sidebar) or through the WP Login page, the result is the same – the role is just set to Subscriber.
Does anyone have any idea what has gone wrong, and more importantly, how I can fix this?
thanks in desperation!
