BBPress 2.0, private forums and 404 fiasco
We’re using the new 2.0 plugin and we’re running into a couple issues that are making it a bit difficult for us to use BBPress in the way we were intending to.
We have two separate forums right now, one for any user and a second customer only forum. Originally I set it up so that these customer-only forums were private, with read/write access restricted to a particular user-role that our customers get assigned to.
One of the things I’m struggling with the plugin is why these private forums/topics send non-customers to the 404 page instead of actually displaying that particular forum/thread with a message warning that person viewing that is it a private forum, or some other kind of message.
Seeing how integrated 2.0 is with WordPress, I’m rather surprised that there isn’t some kind of built-in association with user roles so that you can set certain forums to have restricted access based on these roles other than using a user role managing plugin.
Is there something fundamental about BBPress 2.0 that I am missing here? Is this a feature that is being planned? As it stands it is a bit difficult to do what we are trying to achieve right now.
Thank you in advance for any advice/feedback related to this matter.
