Need Read Hidden capability to see Private Forums?
I’m relatively new to bbpress, but have read as much as possible so to not look stupid. 🙂
I’m wondering if this is expected behavior.
I have a (private) Category with (private) Forums which is set as a Group Forum in conjunction with BuddyPress.
Users who have the capabilities to Read Private Forums/Topics/Replies can NOT see any of the Topics or Replies in any of the Private forums, UNLESS I either: a) add the ‘Read Hidden’ capability, or b) change the forum to be ‘Public.’
Neither of those are strategies I’d want to employ.
I also use the PMPro plugin and their bbpress addon, which I *could* use to allow the Forums to be ‘Public’, but locked down to non-Members, but I’m not sure if that’s the best route either?
Am I missing something on how best to have Private Forums under a Category in bbpress?
Appreciate any guidance or pointing me in a direction to resolve.
