There have been several posts on this topic…
I’ll try to summarize the pending queries:
- WordPress has multiple user roles under the hood, but they are not accessible (easily) – right?
- What the Members plugin does is make these accessible – right?
- That would make the warning on the on the settings screen reading
Your roles and capabilities will not revert back to their previous settings after deactivating or uninstalling this plugin, so use this feature wisely.
less dramatic (in respect to the multiple roles capability), because
- the Members plugin doesn’t change anything dramatic to the way WordPress works – right?
The background to all these “rights?” is: I’d activated the multiple user role setting because I though it was a good idea. After realizing it wasn’t, deactivating it does not deactivate the possibility of setting more than one role per page, and does not prevent other plugins from adding roles when a role has already been assigned (e.g. CiviCRM WordPress Member Sync) -> leading to users having more than one role.
If the Members plugin in fact somehow gives WordPress a function that it didn’t have previously – then I guess the warning is really, really serious! Or would there then be a back door to revoking it?
