Sync WP Role's with wpForo
Great plugin, really!
Any chance of syncing wordpress user roles with wpForo's usergroups. For example, I already have an admin role set up (which will change every year), so it'll be very convenient if we just have to change user roles once instead of once for the site and another for wpForo.
Hope that makes sense?
I'm sure I can write something if need be?
I'm sorry but not. wpForo Usergroups have extended permission settings and they are attached to Forum Access roles with extended CANs. This is a professional forum permission system and it has no chance to be synchronized with simple WordPress user roles.
Thank you hgr,
we'll take this under consideration.
I am really surprised that you cannot sync WP usergroups with WpForo. I have 4 customers who require forums setup and I starting setting up the first one with wpForo and now I find out you can't sync. This is a showstopper for all of my customers as having to manage 2 sets of usergroups/permissions is just not feasible for larger forums. This should be standard for any forum software.
I am a bit of a newbie with WP as I have been developing sites in Joomla over the years and forums syncing with the CMS usergroups is a given.
This caught me off guard...my bad for not researching and assuming.
I hope this is something you guys will seriously consider going forward.
I'm sorry but I didn't follow you. What do you mean saying "sync WP usergroups with WpForo"? What is this and what is necessary for?
They are already synchronized very well, all users got WP role and wpForo usergroup. All wpForo usergroups are attached to according WP role and vise versa. You don't need to manage 2 sets of usergroups/permissions. Why you think you have to do this? WP roles works well on WP and on wpForo. wpForo usergroups are just designed for forum specific accesses and permissions and all are already set when you install it.
