bbPress User Role Editor conflict fix

bbPress, popular WordPress plugin realizing forum functionality on the base WordPress framework and, as themselves say “WordPress way”, introduced enhanced role model starting from version 2.2. bbPress users, who use “User Role Editor” (URE) WordPress plugin to manage blog user roles, suddenly discovered that URE shows bbPress roles with almost all capabilities turned on, even for minimal ‘Blocked’ and ‘Spectator’ roles.

Only last will win


You are the only boss for your WordPress network

Change default role for owner of new created blog. Is it a problem? You setup multi-site WordPress network successfully and see, that quant of user created blogs grows. Excelent!
But you are not glad. You are not happy. What the reason? You are angry on all those new blogs owners. They do, what they want. They change, what they wish. They should make good posts only! Why all of them are administrators of their blogs? The Administrator should be only one – You. Only One will Win – You! The biggest thing, what you may allow to your WordPress managed network blogs owners – be the editors on their blogs.
That’s a joke, of course. But some time, somewhere… What to do, if text above describes your situation somehow? Don’t worry, try “Win Only One” WordPress plugin. Just setup and activate for Network. It will help you transparently. Your problem will be resolved in the full silence.

User Role Editor


User Role Editor WordPress plugin version 3.7 is published at June 23rd, 2012. What’s new?
– ‘Select All’, ‘Unselect All’, ‘Inverse’ buttons were added to the from for more convenient capabilities management while role editing.
– Role and capability name could be started from digit, and underscore ‘_’ character. Hyphen ‘-‘ character could be included into such name too.
– Old versions used ‘edit_users’ capability to check if show/hide ‘User Role Editor’ menu item under ‘Users’ menu. Starting from version 3.7 ‘administrator’ role is checked. Existed inconsistency, when non-admin user with ‘edit_users’ capability saws ‘User Role Editor’ menu, but got ‘Only Administrator is allowed to use User Role Editor’ error message, was removed.
– Bug fix: if you work with WordPress admin via https, URE will use https instead of http, as it made in older versions.
