Wanted to let you know that bbpress profiles, forums and topics CAN be secured. After searching for the solution I found it today. Using the WPMU Membership Premium Plugin I could secure the site by using/blocking URL groups and regular expressions.
I also learned that bbpress is a very good forum, but it is meant to be used as a public forum and therefore I couldn’t expect to be able to secure it from within bbpress. I was thrilled to find out that the membership plugin by WPMU is versatile enough to effectively secure bbpress behind a single login.
Now I am getting confused. I could have sworn that I replied to your post John a few days ago… but I don’t see it.
Here it is again then, my apologies, I didn’t mean to transgress a forum convention. Still, if at all possible, I’d like some direction as to how I can block access via direct URL to user profiles. From user profiles someone can track back to posts attributed to the user and use and post via that ‘back door’.
I have bbpress installed and protected (I thought) behind the membership wpmudev.org membership plugin and want the forum area available for specific members only including the profile information. What files need to be customized to make this possible?
I can block posts and content in pages with short-codes from the membership plugin, but I don’t know where I would place those within the structure of bbpress. Is there a way, please? I am not a coder, but have friends who are I just need to be pointed to the files that are involved in getting this done. Thanks for ANY help with this matter.
I was in the same situation. Using twentyeleven with WP 3.4. Get the twentyeleven extension where you can add a sidebar to all pages easily.
The plugin works with the new version.
Just noticed that I said twentytwelve (WP theme), it’s of course twentyeleven…
I have managed to use the sidebar login widget plugin and direct users to a nicely formatted user profile page. But clicking on a bbpress member name in a post still brings me to a profile page, that shows bbpress stats, and that is not properly stuled. The user information can be accessed and edited directly with a direct URL even if nobody is logged in at the site in a different browser.
I notice here in this forum that users are linked to their own websites, or other custom pages, how is this done?
