Automatically create BP user

    I have latest version of both BP and WP.

    I’m very new to BP. With my current membership plugin, it creates the WP user and assigns their plan, manages their billing, etc. With the syncing box selected, does that also mean that all new users are automatically given a BP profile that they can fill out and perform the other functions?

    If not, is there a way to make that happen?

    any WP user is also a BP user.

    @joshwinkles With BuddyPress installed, try going to yoursite.com/members/username whilst logged in as a WP user. If you can edit your profile, change your avatar etc then it works!

    A membership plugin is generally used to determine user roles and capabilities (and to charge users for access). All WordPress users should be automatically also BuddyPress users. One hiccup is if they have not ever logged in they may not display on the front end in the main BuddyPress members directory. I believe it only shows users if they have some activity, such as a login or register. If they predate BuddyPress activation they MAY need to do something before they appear in the Members directory, but rest assured they do have BuddyPress profiles that they can access with their existing WordPress login credentials.

    Awesome. Thanks everyone for your replies. I think it’s the best forum response I’ve ever had.
