Topics accessible to certain users only

    In some of my forums users can open new topics.

    Need: Make topics accessible (=read and write replies) only to users that wish to subscribe to or join that specific topic.

    I’m dreaming of a button saying “Join this topic” which then makes replies of a topic visible for all users who push the button. Optimally same for leaving.

    (Topic titles shall always be seen by everyone)

    Thought about bbp-private-groups’ plugin, private replies and a combination with user role’s membership plugins but I’m totally stuck right now.

    I’d appreciate any help you can give!

    This sounds like custom functionality , you may need to hire a developer to create this for you.

    thanks, robkk, you are right.

    found a solution that may be useful for some, though:
    It’s these three plugins together:
    Paid MembershipsPro + Paid Memberships Pro bbpress + Paid Memberships Pro: PMPro Roles
    Tried, worked, but unfortunately slowed down my page already and found it to be a bit too much overload for what I need.

    Yeah that sounds way too complicated

    I have bbpress installed for forums and i have set it to “Anyone can register”. I would want to allow anyone who is registered to be able to start a topic in the forum but it seems i (admin) am the only one who is allowed to.

    Please help.
    Thanks

    Could you just add some sort of conditional to say ‘if subscribed’ and ‘if in forum X’ in the replies loop template so say only people subscribed can see replies? Sounds like it should work?

    Yeah there might be a conditional to tell if the user is subscribed, will test it out later though.

    This seems to do it. Users have to subscribe to be able to reply.

    thanks robkk. just tried out.

    would be great if users see to which topics they can subscribe and are still be able to create new topics.

    when “hidden” the whole forum containing non subscribed topics is hidden which also takes the possibility to subscribe to a topic at all.
    when “private” it removes the reply form if a user is not subscribed (for admins, too).
    replies of a topic are still viewable.

    hidden forums are only accessible to Admins and Mods.

    when “private” it removes the reply form if a user is not subscribed (for admins, too).
    replies of a topic are still viewable.

    I will update my gist file to show the reply form to Admins/Mods so they do not have to subscribe.

    The replies to a topic being viewable I am not really getting? In what circumstance do you want the replies to be hidden??

    ah ok – makes sense, then.

    The replies should be hidden
    -if logged out
    -if logged in but not subscribed to the specific topic.

    he replies should be hidden
    -if logged out
    -if logged in but not subscribed to the specific topic.

    could be easy for just logged out, might need show lead topic for replies (maybe).

    Updated the Gist again, this time and it should work like how you want.

    You will need to show the lead topic using this though.

    function custom_bbp_show_lead_topic( $show_lead ) {
      $show_lead[] = 'true';
      return $show_lead;
    }
     
    add_filter('bbp_show_lead_topic', 'custom_bbp_show_lead_topic' );

    this works great for replies, Robkk.
    Unfortunately it changed the default settings for public forums the same as for private forums.

    Public forums
    should be:
    -logged in and out: read lead and replies
    -logged in, also unsubscribed: read both and write replies
