Syncing users of a specific role only

Is there a way to sync users from only a specific wordpress role?

My forum is a sellers only forum (no customers), my website is a marketplace. I only want sellers who have the wordpress user role of 'Store Vendor' to sync across. Is this possible? I would like it to be automatic too.

Thanks :D

Hi Ashley, thanks for your question.

Once XFtoWP 1.2 is out of beta the next focus is on a bulk process tool that can do things like:
  1. Sync WP users as XF users*
  2. Sync XF users as WP users*
  3. Mass create threads
  4. Update canonical URLs
  5. Import from other WP-XF integrations
etc.

I will consider adding user roles to the user sync criteria as that does sound pretty valuable.

Hi Alex

Great! I look forward to the future updates 😆

Thank you
Lots of good stuff still to come. :)

What do you think about the idea of a "user lookup" tool? I see you've verified your account to this forum from XFtoWP, so one of the features nearly complete for the next beta is the ability for subscribers to self-verify themselves in a similar way.

Here's what it will look like from the subscriber's edit profile:

Pretty easy, and I am building it to be as safe as I can and not allow subscribers to be able to change anything about a user, and only be able to search by username. This feature has been valuable from the main Marketersdelight.com account area too:
