Private, Role Based Forum access in WordPress

  • I understand how to make a forum private when using the bbPress WordPress plugin, but I don’t see how to assign roles-based access. Do I need a plugin to do this?

  • It works the same way as making a BlogPost.

    Go to NEW Forum and on the right-side is a drop down menu that says: Visibility: Public you have two other options, Private and Hidden.

    And for the User roles i have no idea, i’m also still working on that. But i think they work on how they are set in WordPress.

    Prob. some other User Role plugins will work perfectly together with bbPress.

    My question:

    Why is it possible for a member (sigh a signed-up user) to go into the dashboard area and Edit all this posts to Private or Password protected?

    I’ve tried it a few minutes ago and it will only hide or protect one post in a topic.

    I don’t know if i like it or not …

    Thanks for your reply. I got that far, but it’s the roles issue that is bothering me.
