MAJOR noobie with a lot of questions
I wasn’t sure where to post my question. I apologize if there are others like mine out there.
Extreme WP noobie here, I’ve been given the task of making a forum.
I downloaded bbPress, everything seems to have been set up. When I try to register, I received an error stating “User registration is not opened”.
I followed the directions from http://tinyurl.com/ofaf5qn. Then, I went back and turned on anyone can register. Now, because I did that, anyone that registers registers for a WordPress account. I’m not sure if that’s correct.
Second: I need to have a public forum, which I created. Member-only forum, also created (but having that registration issue). Also, we want to have an admin forum, obviously just for admins. How do I do that last part? Only give access to certain people?
Third: Not sure if you’re the People to talk to about this, but, we also want to have a section in our website, preferably in the forum, for our clients to have a journal/diary. They will log their food for the day. It will be private and just for them. Any advice on that? I tried using the DiaryPress plug in, but i can’t seem to figure out how it works and there isn’t any documentation online.
I am pretty sure I can do it via the forum, I just don’t know how to do it. I know it’s a permissions thing and I can make certain posts hidden.
How easy is it to create a login just for them? We don’t want to use something like Penzu, because we want it tied to us.
I was just told we need to also make it so that the posters are anonymous. I don’t want to have people to post anonymously, I want them to sign up.
Is there a way to do that?
I’m sorry for the novel. But as you can see. I am way way way over my head and need a lot of help.
