    Hi,
    Thank you for purchasing from us.

    It seems you are trying to achieve the opposite of what this plugin does.

    The Member Type pro allows you to Map ‘member types’ to WordPress roles and also, if you want, you can associate some the groups with member types to be automatically assigned.

    What you are looking for seems to be like this:-

    1. each group has an associated WordPress role
    2. When a user joins a group by any means, we change the user’s role to that specific group’s associated role

    Is that a correct assumption? If yes, we can help with some snippet/a tiny plugin to achieve it. I just need to know which code/plugin are you using to assign groups to user on home page. Also, what
    happens if a user becomes member of 2 or more groups?

    Regards
    Brajesh

    great with snipet!!!!

    You are correct, totaly wrong of me regarding the type plugin.

    1. each group has an associated WordPress role – Correct

    2. When a user joins a group by any means, we change the user’s role to that specific group’s associated role. the user can be in multiple roles.

    The important thing is to match 1 group to one role.

    We are planing to use the buddy press own plugin

    Hello,

    Please download and activate the following plugin on your site:

    https://github.com/buddydev/bp-group-role/archive/refs/heads/master.zip

    This plugin adds a roles dropdown under Group > Settings page. You can set group associated role here and this role will be used when the user joins this group.

    Regards
    Ravi

    Hello,

    Sorry for the inconvenience. The plugin adds a setting under the group’s manage screen under the settings page. Check the following screenshot:

    https://tinyurl.com/28qcrejs

    Once you set the associated role for the group. It will be auto-assigned to the joining user on group joining. It will remove the old user role and set the group-associated role as a new role and Leaving the group plugin doesn’t do anything.

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.

    Regards
    Ravi
