Configure forums for user roles (anonymous, member, moderator)

    @nyks-barton

    I installed a fresh WP-Site (WP, Buddypress and bbpress).
    I created 3 forums by bbPress; these should be visible and avaiable to different user roles:

    • one forum for all website-guests (anonymous)
    • one forum for all registered users (member)
    • one forum only for the forum-moderators

    I think, this is a common task for many/most forums. How can I do this?

    Thanks,
    Nyks

    thanks, netweb. I already did before.

    Only related hint i found is:

    Visibility: decide whether your forum is public, private or hidden.

    Public – Anyone can see these forums
    Private – Only logged in registered users can see these forums
    Hidden: Only Moderators/Admins can see these forums

    I had created 3 forums, one of each visibility-option. But I (as logged-in admin) could only see the public forum. In the frontend I only see the public-forum in my top-menu. I also tried to add menu-entries for the other forum in my WP-custom-menü, but both forums didnt appear in the menu-creation (design / menu).

    After some hours I got the solution (which I didnt foudn in the codex, @netweb.

    To use the Visibility-options, its is nessesary, to assign the forums to a category.
