When integrating bbPress and WordPress and using only the WordPress registration, no default role was assigned to the user in bbPress. This will give the user a role of member in bbPress. Just activate, and whenever a user signs up, they will automatically have the bbPress role assigned. Note: this is not retroactive; it is only for new registrations.

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- That’s it! New registrations will automatically be assigned the role.
