    Hi there, I’m looking at BuddyPress Member Types Pro, and need some clarification on the subject

    “Setup automatic WordPress role assignment based on BuddyPress member type.”

    Does this mean that it is possible to associate different WordPress roles to different Member Types when users sign up, like Member Type 1 is assigned subscriber role, and Member Type 2 is assigned customer role?

    Regards
    Carsten

    Hello Carsten,

    Exactly, If you associate WordPress roles to the member types. Then, it will be auto-assigned to the user when his/her member type changed.

    Hi Ravi, thanks for your reply, just to clarify this, if the Member Type is assigned already at registration, using the Single Member Type profile field, then the user role eg. customer can be assigned as well, I can’t see how this is done in the “Setup automatic WordPress role assignment based on BuddyPress member type” chapter and screen shot?

    Will this surpass New User Default Role in WP General settings?

    Regards
    Carsten

    Hello Carsten,

    Yes, It will surpass WordPress General settings and assign the role associated with the member type.

    Hello Carsten,

    Thank you for the details. I would like to make you more clear on adding member types with default interface and With Member Type Pro interface.

    1. When you create a member type using the default interface it will be created like terms in custom taxonomy.
    2. While you create a member type using the Member Type Pro plugin it will be created like posts with custom post types that is why you are getting different IDs and default member types not showing in Member Type Pro UI.

    Regards
    Ravi
