I'm working on an inherited CiviCRM/WordPress site using the CiviCRM WordPress Member Sync https://wordpress.org/plugins/civicrm-wp-member-sync/ and the Members plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/members/ and I can't find an answer to the question below in any docs.
In the past, someone used the Manual Synchronize feature of Member Sync to manually sync all CiviCRM members to WordPress, but all users were Administrators. After a reinstall of CiviCRM, an import of a CiviCRM database, and deleting all the old WordPress Administrators, I now need to manually sync the users again. But of course I don't want them synced as administrators; I need them synced as lower level roles in order to restrict access to page content and of course not give admin privledges.
How do I control the user role that the CiviCRM users are synced as WordPress users? I'm using the "Role" Synchronization Method.
Is this controlled by Association Rules? I need to add a rule for each CiviCRM membership level?
Will the "New User Default Role" in WordPress>General Settings override synced users Association Rules?
Do I need to use https://wordpress.org/plugins/groups/ ?
