bbPress role assignment bug

There is a bug, that will be fixed in the next release of bbPress plugin, related to assigning roles.

One can still assign forum user roles by using the drop down menu at the
bottom of the page – the bug affects only the drop down menu at the top of
the Users page.

How do I add a new plugin?

The task of installing and upgrading plugins (and themes) is done for you.  So you will not find the “Add New” button, which is normally under the Plugins section.

If you cannot find the plugin you would like to use, from the ones already installed under the Plugins section, then you can request that we install additional plugins.

  1. First find the plugin you would like to use
  2. Contact the Research IT team via or by email  Include the following information:
    • Functionality required
    • Name of the plugin
    • Plugin URL/website address. NB: If you want a custom or paid for plugin installed you will need to supply the plugin files
    • Link or name of your blogs/website

Please note, we will not install plugins that are not compatible with the recent versions of WordPress or haven’t been updated in the last two years.  Where similar functionality is available by an already installed plugin, please make it clear in your request why you need this additional plugin installed.
