Remove Myself from the Forum

  • mrjarbenne


    As the SuperAdmin on a multisite, I activate bbPress for a number of different sites. When I do, the site gets added to the My Sites menu. I don’t want a role on the forum. Once I set it up and add the Administrator of the blog as the Keymaster, I’d like to remove myself entirely, but it seems that I can’t remove myself from the site: I am consistently reverted to a Participant on the forum. Does visiting the site while logged in automatically add the user as a participant? Is there a way for me to remove myself from the site to keep the My Sites menu on the WP Admin bar cleaner?

    bbpress has a quirk (or it’s simply the way it works), where if you have no bbpress role, on login it gives you the default one.

    I know nothing of multisite, but maybe Simplest way is to change your bbpress role to blocked?



    I found the culprit. I don’t know how I missed it before, but by default a registered user is added as a participant. This toggle was forcing me on the site, even when I removed myself.

    I can hack the plugin and set that as false by default. I’ll just need to remember to fix that every time the plugin updates, and I’ll need to let users know that they need to add a forum role to their users (which shouldn’t be a big deal).

    Looks like I can do that on bbpress/includes/admin/settings/line 532 changing the true to false.

    <input name="_bbp_allow_global_access" id="_bbp_allow_global_access" type="checkbox" value="1" <?php checked( bbp_allow_global_access( true ) ); bbp_maybe_admin_setting_disabled( '_bbp_allow_global_access' ); ?> />

    I can understand why it’s set this way. It does make the plugin work “out of the box” in a way that users would otherwise need to sort through what is already a very intricate settings panel.
