I need to upgrade my friend's blog from v2.9.2 to wordpress 3.1.
I'm using there the excellent plugin "role manager" which hasn't been updated for ages. So I'm thinking of changing over to yours.
The whole site is going to be turned into a multi-site as well.
My main issue is that (as stated in the role manager's page) the roles the capabilities given by that plugin DO still stand as permanent in the database even after the plugin is disabled or deleted. Actually this is nice, because I don't want to lose neither the capabilities nor my existing roles.
But I want them TRANSFERED over to your plugin. So.
If I were to use your plugin, would it pick up the roles, capabilities and rest of settings I have implemented so far with role manager?
Are there some steps that I should follow to insure compatibility and transition and what would those be?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm very keen on using your plugin since it seems to be the best one around - and believe me, I did look around.
Thank you in advance for your time, help and advice.
