Can you post a simple chart showing how to integrated WP user levels to SP member levels

 

ie

if someone is a member of my site what should their corresponding wp permissions/user group be

if theyre vip on my sp forum, what should their wp user level be (subscriber,contributor,participant......

if they are a mod on my sp site , their wp user level ?

 

The problem I see is that basic members are seeing a part of the wp "dashboard" and mods cant even login

logging has nothing to do with simple press... that is all wp... 

if you dont want folks seeing the wp admin area, see the block admin stuff on forum - options - global settings...

how permissions work:  https://simple-press.com/docum.....ng-access/

how to configure sp usergroup membership to match wp roles:  https://simple-press.com/docum.....ip-plugin/

simple press does not set, remove or modify any wp roles... those are entirely up to you...  and we do nothing with wp roles, unless you map them to a usergroup as specified in the link above...

instead of of posting confusing and somewhat concentrically  links could you post a chart  that shows the corresponding levels and they need to be integrate ?

I think Mr Papa answered the question pretty thoroughly, and am not sure of the need for a 'chart' displaying the way the usergroups match the WP roles, or even how to put that information in to a chart for that matter!

The way a WP role is matched to an SP usergroup is explained in the second link, and we reference the Codex (similar format to the WP Codex which you must have had experience with) to save us typing it all out twice!

how can we possibly have a chart form wp roles????  There are in infinite number of wp roles... which ones you use on your site, whether wp default or additional ones  you,  your theme, or other plugins create is impossible for us to know...

have you even looked at forum - usergroups - map usergroups to roles?  It will list every wp role you have on your site and allow you to map them to your sp usergroups (as explained in the links provided)...

most users wont even care about wp roles... but the mapping is provided in case you using a membership plugin or other that segregates users by wp role...  in reality, all wp roles are treated equal in simple press...  a wp admin, be default, unless the wp admin that installed simplre press, has no more capabilities or accesses than a wp user with role of subscriber..  wp roles are irrelevant unless you map them to a usergroup as we have explained... that allows you to put users in specific usergroups with specific permissions based on their roles...
