We want to create a private LMS for a small school. We are using the Members and Role Scoper plugin to restrict access and show different content for different groups of students. Members plugin is used so we can filter widgets using widget logic based on role and Role Scoper for hiding menu items, content and categories when need be.
We want to get the students to register themselves which is possible. What we need is them to enter their user id number and get WordPress to connect that number to a specific user role and or add it to a specific Role Scoper user group. Is there already code out there that does this or at least helps us?
