Forums for registered users
I am new to wordpress and I am struggling to set up a forum on my webpage that has the features I want.
I would like to create a forum that is free for all to view but can only be contributed to by registered user of the website. So creating new topics and replying/commenting in the tread is only available to those who are registered. However anyone can read the thread and hopefully its contents will be searchable by google.
I am not sure if I need a specific plugin for this task or if the two I have attempted to do this with are adequate with better knowledge. (bbpress and Discussion Board)
It would also be my preference for the user to log in to the website, rather than just the forum but I would settle for the latter if the former is not easily attainable.
I would really appreciate any info that anyone has on the subject because I am not a web developer! Webpages look so simple before you find out what goes into them.
