Private 'Members Only' Forum (unpaid) with front end user profiles?
I have been trying to research the most effective way to achieve the below with a plugin or combination of plugins. Any help would greatly appreciated.
I’m using WordPress 4.0.
- Website containing a small private forum area that is password protected (forum page displays only a user login panel until you sign in, so non-members will not see any forum content at all).
- Once logged in the user can both view and post in the forum.
- Users can be created manually from the back end of the site but would preferably get some kind of front end user profile rather than having access to the WordPress Admin bar.
- Users can include attachments (.pdf or .doc/.docx) in posts for comment
- No front end registration as the forum will only be open to a select few
- You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
