We want non-members to only view entire threads that we designate as public, without being able to post anonymously. But we still want them to appear in the forum index, rather than disappearing entirely as BBPress private groups does when setting a thread to ‘private’.
There might be one thread, for example, that we feel is interesting to the general public and we want non-members to see. However, there are going to be a few threads with information that we generally wouldn’t want non-members to see, only people who have a proven interest in our forums.
I know it’s a bit of a long-shot, but worth a try 🙂
