Protect BBPress with MemberPress

    @rblea24

    I’m using MemberPress, BBPress and BuddyPress. I want the public to see all forums on this page: https://www.goalsarecool.com/forums/ However, when a non-member clicks on one of the Forums, I want them to see a message that says Sorry! This content is for members only. Please login or become a member to view this content.

    Can someone please help me understand how to do this?

    Thanks in advance!
    Blake

    Looks like you got this solved, no?

    It looks like part of it has been resolved.

    However, the search option … and clicking on the latest post of a forum (the link above the most recent contributor) … remain visible, e.g.
    https://www.goalsarecool.com/forums/search/write+fiction/
    https://www.goalsarecool.com/forums/topic/never-give-up/

    The remaining issues will need to be solved via the MemberPress plugin.

    Not necessarily. This might work:

    I haven’t had the chance to test it yet … but Jared Atchison is the author, so hopefully it should be good to go.

    It’s important that BuddyPress/bbPress is capable of protecting itself first before resorting to other 3rd-party/premium plugins.

    It is important, and bbPress does protect itself, where appropriate. The forums at this link are public forums, which means that anyone can view them, logged in or not. The MemeberPress plugin is restricting these public forums to logged in users. Since it’s a premium plugin, I don’t have access to the code. My guess, since it seems to do it’s job well on the forums, is that it’s not properly applying the same logic to single topics/replies and search. The result being that there is some data leakage.

    Yes 🙂 And I’ve seen this problem before on other platforms.

    I’ll be testing out the combination of MemberPress, BuddyPress, and bbPress next week. I’m hopeful that it won’t dePress me if I run into troubles 🙂

    Let us know. We’re working hard to get 2.6 out the door soon, so if there’s something we need to fix, the sooner the better 🙂
