    Hi guys,

    I want to integrate WordPress with not-BBpress forum software and would be happy to know, which rights users have in WordPress. Is it possible just to register username, password and email, puting them correctly to WordPress table? Also, on which parts of the site exactly users system is working? I have found that only publishers are registering in /wp-admin/

    Are there another places?

    Sorry for possible dumb question - I already have done an integration, and it is working, I am afraid only about these new registrations from outside.

    I would say, that WordPress is definitely not for newbies! :-)

    This new User privilege table might help you:

    P.S. WordPress is perfect for dumb newbies like me ;)

    You know, integrating the user system of two different applications is an extremely advanced thing to try :)

    MichaelH: thank you for providing this link! I have more knowledge now, and probably, "Level 0" is exactly what I need :-) So users register on forums, but have no privileges in WP itself.

    But... what "Options -> Discussion" level means? Does WordPress having this feature only for those who want to install BBPress?

    In general - how users are logged to WordPress? Via /wp-admin/ link? Even on WordPress site, I didn't find the login page.

    Firas: yes, it's extremely advanced thing, and that's what I am gonna to implement. In true, I've already implemented it :-) I will post a link here when the solution will be published on the web.

    1. Options->Discussion means the user with that level has access, via the Administrative Panel to set the Discussion Options. You might want to look at:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/User_Levels
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Discussion_Options
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Panels

    2. I don't know of User Level feature in WordPress just for "those who want to install BBPress."

    3. You should see a Site Admin or Login option in the right sidebar if you're using the default WordPress Theme.

    MichaelH:

    1. Oh, thanks! I didn't know that the Discussion actually means "Comments". So, it is ok... I don't need it :-)

    2. So, am I right - users in WordPress can not be registered themselves? Administrator must register them, and probably another users with the right privileges, too?

    3. I see it! What I mean - is the "wp-admin/" section the only one, where registered users can login?

    And one question more... Is WordPress team using their product on their wordpress.org site? :-)

    Don't mix WP and BBpress. They are not meant to share the users and they are not tied together. It happens that the developer is the same :)

    2. User can register themselves in WP, if you allow it.

    Both products from one developer not tied together??? Strange!

    But anyway, thanks for the help!
