BuddyPress Groupblog
Members group roles don't update in the group blog (3 posts)

    I'm using the latest version of wordpress, buddypress, and the groupblog plugin. When a new member joins the group, they're automatically assigned the role of an author. Unfortunately, when I promote the member to a moderator or admin role from within the buddypress group, the user's role doesn't actually change on the group blog - they continue to be an author. How can I fix this? Thanks!

    I've been digging around further and here is what I found. Something is definitely off.

    So it seems like the user roles are being assigned from the group to the groupblog - however it's assigning the wrong roles. In short - it seems that the mapping of group roles to the blog roles is completely off.

    I have these settings defined in the Group:

    Group Administrator: Blog Admin
    Group Moderator: Blog Editor
    Group Member: Blog Contributor

    When a person becomes a group member, they are assigned the blog contributor role - so far, so good.

    When a person is promoted from member to group moderator, their blog role is not promoted, it says at blog contributor. Wrong.

    When a person is promoted from group moderator to group administrator, their role changes to blog editor. Wrong.

    When a person is demoted from group administrator to group member, their role changes to blog administrator. Also wrong.

    So this is what I've been able to find out.

    I'm using the latest version of wordpress, buddypress, and the groupblog plugin. I have very very few other plugins added - basically testing in my sandbox area.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    To add to all of the above, if someone is trying to replicate the issue, here is my setup:

    WP: 3.5.1
    BP: 1.6.4
    WPMU - Subdomain

    There doesn't seem to be a pattern to how the group roles are mapped to blog roles.

    If someone has got this working on the latest version of WP and BP - please contact me.

    Thanks!
