Vanilla & Wordpress - User Roles
This discussion is related to the Vanilla Proxyconnect addon.
After a while of testing I still can't figure out how the ProxyConnect plugin handles user roles. From my observation they aren't tied to each other at all - am I right? I'm having difficulties setting the registration process to "Approval" in Vanilla. Even when it's set, every new user gets a "Member" role assigned automatically, skipping the whole approval process. Can someone explain how this should be done using ProxyConnect?
