Single Registration for WP and BBPress

    @tulisan

    I’m planning to integrate BBPress to my WordPress site and I was informed that it already allows single login integration.

    Does it also allow single registration? I mean, when a user registers on my WP site, does he automatically have access to bbpress? How about when a user registers on the bbpress forum, does that user get a WP user account as well?

    If not, is there already a way to do this and can someone point me to the right resource?

    Thanks!

  • There is an option in Settings > Forums to control which user types have access to post in the bbPress forums.

    When a user is created in bbPress by registering, they are always added to WordPress.

    I can’t see that setting anywhere. I would like to make it so only forum registrants can use the forum, not all users on my website. I’m sure I’m probably just missing it but I’m still missing it. Can you tell me exactly where it would be?

    See the attached image. It’s the Global Access setting you want to adjust.

    Fantastic! Do you happen to know how I can make it so only forum registrants can view posts? Or is that not possible?

    Thanks so much for your help. I’ve been spinning in circles for 2 hours so you’ve been a Godsend!

    That is not possible out of the box, only with custom modifications.

    one last q and i promise i wont bug you anymore. Do you know if making it a private forum will at least provide some amount of privacy or will it make the forum not function properly? sorry for the typos, on my phone now.

    Sorry, I definitely told you wrong before.

    Setting a forum to private will make it so only logged-in users can view it. Logged-out users will get a 404 error.

    You can also adjust the permissions that any individual user has for the forums by going to the user’s profile editor in the admin, as shown in the screenshot below:

    perfect! thank you so much! will get on it when i get back home. thx again!

    What Pippin wrote is not entirely true:
    the screenshot above is from the current development version 2.2-bleeding!

    In current public release v2.1.2 this is NOT possible yet.

    Hope that helps, Dave :)

    OMG Thank you! I was just about to come on here and say I don’t have that anywhere! Lol! So right now I can’t separate site registrants from forum registrants, correct?

    Ah, yes, sorry, Dave is right. I run my local development site on the bleeding edge version and sometimes forget things there are not available to everyone yet :)

    No worries. At least I know I can stop scouring the site over and over looking for something that isn’t there. ;)

    I noticed in Pippin’s first screenshot that there was an option to uncheck whether topics allow tags – does this mean that the next version will allow us to finally get rid of the “Tags” box when posting topics? I’ve been racking my brain on trying to figure out how to get rid of tags but if the option comes available in the next version I’ll likely just wait until then, unless there’s a way to do it now that I’m not aware of.

    Yes, the option to disable Topic Tags removes the tags meta box.
