Paid Memberships Pro Roles
Roles for Membership Levels
Adds a custom WordPress Role for each Membership Level. Membership Level settings allow you to specify the single role or multiple roles to assign to members of the level.
After activating the plugin, a new custom role will be added for each membership level on your site. The custom roles will be set to have a display_name as the membership level’s name and the role as pmpro_role_x, where x is the membership level’s ID.
The plugin will automatically create a new role for every existing or newly added membership level. The custom roles created by this plugin have the same basic capabilities as the “subscriber” role. You can adjust the custom role capabilities using the method outlined below.
New members will have their role set after completing checkout.
All existing members will keep their previous role. You will need to perform a custom database query to bulk update the roles for existing members, if desired.
When user’s membership is cancelled or removed, the custom roles assigned for their previous level will be removed and the site default role will be assigned. You can adjust your site default role under Settings > General in the WordPress admin.
