Role-based forums plugin?
I just started using bbPress yesterday, and as a WordPress and longtime phpBB user I’m pretty happy with it.
The only drawback I see as a critical flaw right now is the lack of any kind of security / role-based restrictions on specific forums. I’d like to be able to pull over a phpBB2-based forum that I run, and using the phpbb2bbpress migration script another poster wrote, I was able to migrate all of the content over perfectly. However, I had at least a couple of private forums that are access-restricted based on user permissions, and I can’t really complete the migration until I can lock those forums down.
Has anyone written a plugin (or does anyone know if this feature is coming soon?) that will allow role-based access to a specific number of forums in a bbPress installation? I don’t want to lock down the whole app (which I’ve seen a couple of threads about), just a couple of forums within the install.
Thanks in advance-
