User-Groups Restricted Forum Access for certain groups
I can’t belive, that this is acutally no out of the box function for bbpress / wordpress – but I have really big issues, with having certain forums or topic just accessable for certrain user groups.
It seems impossible, to create something, like user-groups, only roles can be done – thats okay. But Even with the Members Plugin, where I can create certain roles, it is absolutely impossible to specify, which user-role has access to a forum or topic.
Ex.: I created a user Role, then I created a forum, and I set the User-Role I created to be the only User role, that should have acccess to it. If I set the visibility to public, everyone could see it, If I set it to private, only logged in users could see it – everyone.
Isn’t there ANY way, to let my customer
- create User Groups (or roles)
- apply them to users
- and specify at each forum OR Topic, which user role should have access
We really need this! I know that this is possible with BuddyPress, but with my years of WordPress Experience, I have still no clue how to make a hole BuddyPress Site – there is no satisfying documentation about it. (as well as with bbpres.. btw..)
