WP Integration: suggested user role mappings

  • Hi, I’ve just installed a fresh install of WP and bbP and I’ve got to the point where I need to choose the user role mappings.

    However, although I’ve used WP extensively I’ve never used bbP before so I’m not sure what mappings I should use. I was thinking maybe something like the following:

    Administrator – Key Master

    Editor – Administrator

    Author – Moderator

    Contributor – Member

    Subscriber – Inactive

    Can anyone with experience give me any better suggestions? Also, can I easily change these roles later?

    It depends how much you trust editors with user records. I would tend to go with this.

    Administrator – Key Master

    Editor – Moderator

    Author – Member

    Contributor – Member

    Subscriber – Member

    As you can see, you don’t need to have one-to-one relationships.

    Thank you Sam.
