Creating "members only" forum

    I want there to be a special section for special members, other than the normal registered user. I know there’s forum role functionality, but I’m not seeing how to edit a users forum role, and I’m not seeing how to assign permissions to forums based on forums roles. Help?

    For this you should consider using the Members plugin from Justin Tadlock, to create a unique WP role for the users whom you wish to have “special” access. Then you can differentiate their capabilities within the unique WP role (or use one of the default WP roles).

    Confused?… don’t worry, it’s all new. bbPress now has unique and definitive roles and capabilities from those of WP. But this can be used to your advantage if you have a few tricks up your sleeve ;-)

    I cover this at the end of the updated Definitive Guide to BuddyPress and bbPress. See if this helps? Let me know if you need further help?
