Setting up unique users separate from Wordpress
You say WPForo uses the WP user database - can you tell me if there is a way to see the WPForo user status in the same drop down list as the normal WP users (ie in a user edit screen there is a drop down list of their status admin/subscriber etc but there is then a separate wforo drop down list to choose admin/customer/guest etc)
If these were integrated (same as they are when you use woocommerce or other plugins that need a WP user status) then it would be a simple thing to be able to integrate WPforo with a membership plugin etc (something which many many I have seen here are really wanting to do as WPForo is such a great forum plugin and much nicer to look at and use than older forum plugins)
Thank you carold,
we'll consider to add some map for WP role and wpForo Usergroups. But WP roles can not be managed like wpForo Usergroups. you can see it here: http://wpforo.com/docs/root/members/usergroups-and-permissions/
wpForo Usergroups is an advanced system to control users permissions and accesses to forum. WP roles have no chance to perform this kind of deep control.
