Membership & Forum Plugins – User Logged in Automatically?

I want to create a forum for members signed up via the Membership plugin. I am looking at bbPress and SimpleForum.

One question I have is whether or not the user who logs in via their Membership created account will be logged into the forum.

Sorry if this is an obvious question.

Thank you.

    Hey there.

    Plugins will plug into WordPress, so it extends WordPress.

    In this instance Membership uses WordPress functions to create the account, username and password.

    All those account details are stored in the same place as they would be if you signed up direct with WordPress.

    The same for forums like bbPress.

    So logging into WordPress will let you use the forum and membership.

    There could always be exceptions to this, but this is the generally expected behaviour of WP with plugins.

    Imagine WordPress as a framework, plugins and themes extend and colour it in. :slight_smile:

    Hope this helps.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
