    Hey,

    Wondering if any custom roles and capabilities will still exist and function if the plugin is deactivated?

    Thanks.

  • Yes, both custom roles and capabilities will exist after the plugin is deactivated.

    The longer explanation:

    Technically, Members is just an interface layer over the top of core WordPress’ roles and capabilities system. However, this system is not exposed to anyone but programmers without a plugin such as Members. So, when you edit any role or cap, you’re literally making internal changes in core WordPress (saved in your database).

    This is quite different than most plugins, which store their “options” separately from core. The WP roles/caps system just works differently in that regard.

    Good to know. Thanks for the info.
