Display links in the content to members only

  • yt



    I want a code to use in the function file of bbPress to hide all links in the content of forum’s topics and replies for visitors.

    I mean until a visitor is not logged in the forum, instead of displaying links, it shows a text message like “displaying links to members only” and a registration link to register and enter his account so that redirects to the last page in the topic or reply.

    Additional Explanation:

    I Use the code below:

    add_filter( 'the_content', 'content_link_for_user_snippets', 1 );
    function content_link_for_user_snippets( $content = '' ) {
        if( ! is_user_logged_in() ) {
            preg_match_all( "#<a(.*?)>(.*?)#i", $content, $matches );
            $num = count( $matches[0] );
            for( $i = 0; $i < $num; $i++ ) {
                $content = str_replace( $matches[0][ $i ], '<a href="' . ( get_permalink() ) . '"><span style="color:#F00;">[displaying links to members only]<span></a>', $content );
        return $content;

    in My site’s Theme and word very nice but it doesn’t have any effect in form and couldn’t use it in bbPress function’ file.

    sorry for late reply.

    You would do better to link to topic and reply content


    add_filter( 'bbp_get_reply_content', 'content_link_for_user_snippets',80, 2 );
    add_filter( 'bbp_get_topic_content', 'content_link_for_user_snippets', 80, 2 );

    I’d run them at priority 80, as bbpress runs various actions at this point, including one called ‘bbp_make_clickable’ at priority 60, which would probably reverse your efforts !

    and couldn’t use it in bbPress function’ file.

    Put this in your child theme’s function file –

    ie wp-content/themes/%your-theme-name%/functions.php

    where %your-theme-name% is the name of your theme

    or use
