can a user login and be taken straight to the forum?
Hi, I’ve installed bbpress and created my forum, and I am able to create topics and post without any problems
Now the not so good part – and I know it’s something I am missing….
I tried experimenting and created a user, and assigned them – site role ‘no role for this site’, and forum role ‘participant’.
the problem is that when they enter the login details, and click login, it displays the ‘You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page’. error message, (but if I then enter the url for the forum they have indeed logged in successfully.)
what I am trying to achieve is that users can access the forum only and not my site’s dashboard.
If I change the site role for this user to ‘contributor’ then there are no errors when they try to login, and the user is taken straight to the site dashboard instead of the forum, which is not what I am wanting.
I apologise my crudeness in explaining this as I am new to wordpress.
any help will be much appreciated!
