Support » Plugin: User Role Editor » Assigning new role as primary role, not secondary

  • Hello, I’m using a LMS plugin called LearnDash that changes a user’s role upon completion of a course,

    I’ve noticed that the new role is added to the user’s profile as a secondary role, not a primary. That is, the user’s primary role remains the same as when he or she registered for the site, but the new roles get added as secondary and tertiary roles.

    Ideally, I would like my users to have just one role at a time. That means their original role (when they signed up) is replaced with the new role they earned by completing a course.

    How can this be set up? I’m using the free version, but would be happy to upgrade to the paid version.

    I suppose that question is more related to the LearnDash plugin developer. It seems that he uses
    method to extend user permissions not just replace the existing one, with

    since version 4.3. add_role() method fires ‘add_role’ action:

    * @param int    $user_id The user ID.
     * @param string $role    The new role.
    do_action( 'add_user_role', $this->ID, $role );

    So it’s possible to catch LMS role addition and remove older role to make new one the primary role.
