Forum on a password protected page?

    I have a section of my WP site that is password protected for members of my group. I like to have a forum that is public but also have one that is within that password protected section. On my test site I’ve tried to do this and it appears to not work because the forums aren’t related to pages at all. Am I missing something? Is there a way to do this? Or do I have to make everyone create a WP login in order to access the protected forum?

    Thanks!

    There’s no easy way to password protect the entire forum; you’ll probably have to find and use a third party plugin if one is available. While you *could* password protect a page, and use a shortcode, that doesn’t actually protect the exact permalinks themselves, so they’re not at all ‘private.’
