User roles all set to 'inactive – no role'

  • I’ve just updated my WordPress blog from version 2.0 to 3.0.1 and subsequently upgraded BBPress from version 0.8.3 to the latest release (1.0.2?). However, now all the users of the forum are displaying as inactive on the front end despite the fact that they have a ‘member’ role when viewed through the admin panel.

    I suspect this is related to the fact that the users are shared between WordPress and BBPress – in WordPress they have no role.

    The problem is that there are 45000 subscribers so to change these manually will take quite some time. I think I’m also right in saying that users in WordPress with no role don’t have any meta values so I’m not sure this can be addressed by finding and replacing anything in the database.

    Does anyone have any ideas? I really don’t want to have to assign these users roles by going through 30 at a time in the WordPress admin screens!

    Thanks in advance for your help.
