When you have bbPress installed you may choose to integrate it with WordPress. bbPres is currently at release 1.0, and that release is only in Alpha.
This is technically a WordPress MU plugin. I have my WPMU site setup with bbPress such that there is no registration on bbPress – it all must happen via the WordPress install. In that case, there is no ‘push’ of bbPress capabilities from WordPress to bbPress. bbPress will support the other direction, when a new user is created in bbPress. This handles the other case.
This is a 0.1 release, there are no options. All users are enabled with ‘member’ privileges in bbPress. This plugin does not handle any pre-existing (pre-plugin activation) users.
- Install the file wpmu_enable_bbpress_capabilities.php in your /wp-content/mu-plugins folder.
- That’s it. New users will now be able to login to bbPress as a member immediately after user confirmation.
