Forum in already restricted access portal?

  • scoleriptideio


    wordpress version: Version 5.4.1
    bbPress version: Version 2.6.4
    theme: Salient with custom child theme

    On our site, we have a “Partner Portal” page which is a restricted access page. Users are “subscribers” and they need to login to view the page contents. They do not register, they fill out a request for access form and we selectively hand out the credentials. We are looking to put a forum page nested on this Partner Portal (on the Partner Portal page, there would be a button that says “Forum” that would take them to a forum page). We only want this same group of users who have access to the Partner Portal to have access to the forum, and they can easily navigate to it once logged into the Partner Portal.

    Is this possible? And would users need to re-login to the forum page when they navigate to it from the Partner Portal? Would we need to have a sidebar on the forum page with login widget?

    Any help or comments about how to go about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    bbpress just uses WordPress login, so if your users have WordPress access (eg subscribers), then they will get the bbpress default access (or you can manually set this up).

    you then set each forum as ‘private’ and it’s existence is then only seen by subscribers
