Just to put a warning out, if you use BBpress, DO NOT UPGRADE TO VERSION 2.2!
I have on my staging site and it does not play nicely with any membership plugins that assign roles that are away from WP Core roles.
There is some discussion here:
No idea why they are going this way but BBPress is now assigning dynamic roles to users.
Have no idea how it does this, but it means that if you are a subscriber (s2 level 0) you shouldn’t have issues (althougha couple of my level 0 test accounts do.)
If you are using levels 1 to 4, you’ll probably even get a 404 error when accessing your forums directory page and beyond.
I’ve asked JJ how BBPress is now doing this and how we can get it to play nicely with S2, but for now don’t upgrade.
You can now assign a ‘forum’ role under settings—>forums for NEW signups which would enable you to give each member a forum role of something like ‘Participant’ which will work alongside their S2 role, but I’m not sure you can do this to all EXISTING members.
It’s a bit bizarre, and like I say, even a couple of my level 0 accounts can’t post replies, although some can.
I just don’t quite get it so will wait on more info!
