Trouble Understand Role Integration

  • When setting up the ROLE MAP in bbPress, what’s best practice? Should I set WP Admin <-> BB Admin? or WP Admin <-> BB Key Master?

    I guess I don’t fully understand the difference between the two.

    WP Admin should be BB Key Master. Those are the top levels in both.

    Thanks Chris!

    So I guess I’m having an issue then. Using WP 2.6.1 and BB 1.0 Alpha. The integration seems to be working quite well. It’s creating users that’s the problem.

    I have two Roles setup in bbPress:

    WordPress Administrator = bbPress Key Master

    Wordpress Subscriber = bbPress Member

    However, whenever I create a user in WP (doesn’t matter if I set it up as a subscriber or admin) it always shows up in bbPress as a “user with no role in these forums”.

    I’m sure it’s something I’ve misconfigured… Just not sure what.



    Again, look at when this was posted. 4 months ago. How long is it going to take bbpress to get the user roles intregated? I would suggest somebody write a plugin or better yet, update the core to match the same user roles in wordpress 2.7 or bbpress is going to lose alot of users.

    Warren – Thank you for bumping multiple posts.

    What version of WP and BB are you using? There is a plugin for WP that should ‘fix’ this for you on WP 2.7 and BB 1.0-alpha-5
