Struggling with show/hide forums/topics
I’m struggling here . It’s a crucial part of my forum structure to be able to allow non-logged in users to click into a forum and view the list of topics, but not be allowed to click into a topic to read them. This is because the content of those topics are for subscribed members only, but allowing that top-level view of the topic titles is a way of teasing non-logged in viewers to sign up.
I’d like to be able to do the same for logged in users of specific forums.
I’m still not understanding why bbpress does not allow this breakdown of different levels of viewing. Is it a structural thing where topics and replies are actually WP posts and can’t be differentiated? I’m interested to know what the coding implications are of allowing topic title view but blocking topic content view.
Perhaps another way of asking this is this:
How do I make all top level forums (i.e. the forum list) public, make all forums clickable to anyone so that the topic lists can be viewed, then restrict what topics are clickable depending on whether they are logged in as well as their logged-in capabilities?
