Frequently Asked Questions.

What is BuddyPress member type?

Member type is a way to classify your users depending on certain characteristics. For example, you may want to treat ‘teachers’ differently than ‘students’.

Does it work with WordPress Roles?

Yes, It does. It allows associating WordPress roles to member type and automatically assigns the new roles(s) on member type change.

Where should I use BuddyPress member types?

It is recommended to use member types where you want to differentiate between the group of users(Think of user categories, user sets, user lists etc). Some of the examples are:-

  • Company intranet(member type based on role)
  • College/University sites(student, teacher, staff)
  • Dating sites(male/female member type)
  • Sports site(players, managers, fan etc)
  • and more…

Will changing role change the member type too?

No. The relationship is unidirectional only. Changing member type will change the role but not the vice versa.

How do I allow/disallow changing member type?

On the New/Edit Profile field page, you can control this behaviour.

Does it support conditional registration field?

Not yet. We are working on the support though. Conditional profile field is supported though(for view/edit user profile, and is built in BuddyPress Core)

Can I safely update from BuddyPress Member Type Generator plugin?

Yes, absolutely. Disable the Member Type Generator and activate this plugin, all the member types registered with member type generator will be available.
