    I have some issues with user rihts. Running the latest WPMU and Buddy 1.1.3 (but same with 1.1.2).

    Every time I change a user level to something other than Author, after the user logs in the level goes back to Author. Only happens with one user that I noticed and I only have 6 users in total so far. Not sure if this is Buddy or WPMU?

  • Disable BuddyPress and see if the problem continues.

    I’m reinstalling WPMU and Buddy. I just found that since the upgrade to 1.1.3 (last night) Forum isn’t working anymore.

    Don’t forget that for the forums to work you need the bbpress folder in bp-forums. I was pretty puzzled when installing from trac the other day.

    Re; forum. I had bbpress already installed and pointed buddypress to bb-config.php. After doing the upgrade to 1.1.3 buddypress lost that information and was looking for the forum in plugins/budypress/bp-forums/. I copied bbpress manually to this folder and things are OK now, I hope.

    Re: User Rights. I use LDAP and if I add LDAP users via Admin area, changing their rights works OK. However if I let a user account be created as soon as the user logins for the first time via LDAP that sets the user lever to Author. When I change this user lever to Editor it goes back to Author after user logs in and attempts to do some editing (blog post/page).

    So I give ldapUser1 Edit rights to blog123. ldapUser1 logs in and goes to edit a page in the blog. ‘Edit this entry’ message shows up. User clicks on it and gets a message ‘You are not allowed to edit this page.’ at the same time user rights reset back to Author.

    This might be a bug with LDAP plugin?! Will test it with WPMU + LDAP only.

    Re: disabling buddypress. Well that screwed up my whole site :-). Lucky me it was a test one.

    Just an update. I’m using LDAP Authentication Plug-in; Plugin URI: http://wpmuldap.frozenpc.net

    I found that if I add a user first via WPMU admin CP then permissions work OK. However if the user is created on first login attempt the the issue occurs. I’ve reported this at the plugins site but no reply so far.

    There seam to be other LDAP plugins (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-ldap-login/ and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-ldap-authentication/) which I did not try.
