No not on the back button. I just mean they navigate back to the forum.
If I set the registration process to direct users to the page with the forum on, when they get there you have to refresh the page for the site to realise you are logged in and it can show the previously hidden forums.
To be honest I actually swapped over to Asgaros this morning. The fact BBpress overrides all permissions was the killer in all this. There was no way around it.
Not sure if its a server cache or something causing my original problem?
Thought I could maybe get around this with somemthing like wp-members and just hiding the page altogether until a user is logged in but it seems BBpress has other ideas for a users permissions that override anything wp-members does…
Just realised what might be causing some confusion but the problem still seems to exist.
I am using a plugin to hide the forums so they are private. Thats why when your not logged in you see a bbpress message that I have modified to say you need to login (Think it said there are no forums here by default).
I have now made some of the forums available to the public in the hope that might work but I just tested. Went to the site, loaded the forum, logged in, went back to the forum and I have to refresh the page/cache before I can see the form to post a new topic.
Its not just my local cache either, someone else had the same problem.
Feel like I am missing something stupid! Gravity forms is powering my registration process if that makes any difference?
Guests come to my website and see the forum link, they click it at which point BBPress has a message saying you need to register to view the forums.
They then go to register, fill out their details, create an account and login.
Once they are logged in they go back to the forum.
Because of caching the forum page still doesnt load the forums, it continues to show the “You must register/login” type message.
