I have eMember set to integrate with WP, however on registration it didn’t assign a role. We want members to start off as a contributor, and then once we review their posts we will manually change to author. The role wasn’t assigned as anything.
Thanks for any help.October 8, 2010 at 11:46 pm #25214wpCommerceModerator
While creating a membership level you need to set a “Default WordPress Role” for whoever will be signing up for this membership. Did you do that?October 9, 2010 at 5:13 pm #25215
Do you mean in WordPress or in eMember?
The default Role for WordPress is subscriber.

it did work when I changed the default role to Contributor in WordPress, however I would rather that still be Subscriber.October 9, 2010 at 11:14 pm #25217wpCommerceModerator
I’m talking about setting the “Default WordPress Role” in eMember.October 10, 2010 at 12:31 am #25218
So you have the default role for this membership level set to “Contributor” in eMember?October 12, 2010 at 2:45 pm #25219
Yes, should it work if the WordPress default is set to Subscriber and the eMember wordpress role set to Contributor?
I ended up setting them both to Contributor, however I can perceive installations where I wouldn’t want this.October 13, 2010 at 2:01 am #25220
If the role is set to “Contributor” in eMember and a user is registering for an account using the eMember’s registration form then the role should be set to “Contributor”. What version of eMember are you using?October 15, 2010 at 4:05 pm #25221
Sorry, had to stop working on these sites, and get to a few other things. The version is 5.7.3.November 4, 2010 at 6:59 pm #25222
This is has started happening again. I’m almost positive it was working for a while, but it’s only almost as we are adding members manually and through purchases. I know when I’m adding them manually it assigns the correct role, however when they follow through the registration process it’s assigns None to the WP role.November 5, 2010 at 4:16 am #25223
I have tested this on the latest eMember build and I know it works. A few questions for you:
1. Have you done any role modification using a custom role manager type plugin?
2. Is this is for free members or for paid members or both doesn’t work?
3. Please try getting a fresh build of eMember from here and try that too:
