I have two local dev setups that are identical with only masterpress running in both. I created a user role on site A called “site_user_test”. I assigned it 14 capabilities and exported it. I then imported that user role on site B but it doesn’t show there. I don’t get any type of error. I’m also new to masterpress and not sure if I should be debugging some other way.
My thought is I have to create a lot of paired down user roles and I was hoping to use masterpress to sort of be a role generator that I could sort of use as a template for different sites. I only bought the single site install because this seemed to good to be true and wanted to test it first…
Thanks for any tips you can give me,
Kiko

Thanks Kiko. Sorry about that, it clearly sounds like an issue in the software. I will let you know when a fix is available.

Thanks so much. If I can do the things I’m imagining, you may have changed my life. I have been building this very plugin in a not so elegant manner and this has blown my mind a little. Well once this user role thing gets worked out anyways… 🙂

I can’t wait to learn more about your thought process of developing a site. Reading the documentation like a tabloid rag. Make more screencasts!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!! I’m a decent programmer. Much better than average. I find the WP documentation and API logic a little hard to follow. Like you say, it’s just hard to remember. I speak 3 languages and can’t remember how to query_posts or was it get_post, I don’t remember. Let me look it up…

I get what you are talking about with the wrappers. It would be awesome to see you explain it in a screencast. Sorry to runaway with this comment. I was up until 5:22 this morning playing with this and have been back at it every spare moment. I’ll put it thru it’s paces. Also screencast on multisite would be unreal! Sorry again…

Hey don’t be sorry. I spent so long writing the documentation that it’s really great to hear when people are reading through it. And good to hear that I’m not alone when wanting to approach WordPress development in a fairly different way.

I do plan to make a lot more screencasts at some stage. I obviously need to complete the series I already started, but I also want to create a lot of short-form task-based screencasts. A bit like: http://www.pixelmator.com/tutorials/

Thanks again Kiko, I’ll let you know when the user role thing is fixed up.

Just an update Kiko. I’ve done some digging, and there are definitely a few problems with user roles and masterplan imports / exports, which I’m working through now. Just so you know that I’m onto it 🙂

You are on it! This thing is unreal!
You have a GitHub account with any cool head starts? (hoping for a theme start that is all setup with Sass and Compass…)

Thanks again,
Kiko

Hey Kiko,

I’ve just posted 1.0.2.b2, which should sort out the issues with User Roles not being brought across when importing masterplans. Apologies for the delay on this.

Thanks Travis!
I’m developing something right now that this might make things really simple. Gonna check it out!
