Hi Vladimir, thanks for getting back to me. What I am not understanding is that I have set these custom roles within my functions.php file like so:
$bbp_roles['bosun'] = array(
'name' => 'Bosun',
'capabilities' => bbp_get_caps_for_role( bbp_get_participant_role() ) // the same capabilities as participants
And also within URE, emulating the participant role.
Moreover these custom forum roles are appearing as options in the Forum Role drop-down list within a user’s profile edit page. Also when viewing all users within WP, there is a Forum Role column, which displays my custom forum roles for each user.
Are you saying that despite creating these custom forum roles, bbpress will never see them as official forum roles and only assigns them ‘participant’, ‘spectator’ etc automatically?
