Pro Sites and bbPress support forum on main site: user account

Hi,

Let's say I want to set a support forum with bbPress on my main site.

- If a customer creates a site with Pro Sites, THEN wants to post on the forum, can he use the same account ? Or does he need to create a spectific account for the forum ?(that would mean he'd have two accounts forever which of course is not user-friendly...)
- Same question but in an different order: if a customer creates an account on the forum, THEN wants to create a site with Pro Sites, what happens?

Thanks! :slight_smile:
Best Regards

    Hey Arom,

    Thanks for your question!

    If a customer creates a site with Pro Sites, THEN wants to post on the forum, can he use the same account ? Or does he need to create a spectific account for the forum ?(that would mean he'd have two accounts forever which of course is not user-friendly...)

    Once a user is created, it will be usable in both bbpress and the normal admin :slight_smile: - In other words, just one account.

    - Same question but in an different order: if a customer creates an account on the forum, THEN wants to create a site with Pro Sites, what happens?

    If a customer creates an account through the forum then they will have already done the user registration part of the Pro Sites registration in which case they will only have to choose their site name, url etc. :slight_smile: It will be a more simple site creation process if they already have a username.

    Hope that helps!

    Let us know if you have any further questions here.

    All the best,
    Tyler
