Users from any group can view, but post only with permission
WordPress version: 4.2.2
bbpress version: 2.5.7
I’m wanting to achieve something fairly complex with bbpress, and I’m hoping you all can help me.
Right now my setup looks like this:
Two main forums, Forum A and Forum B. Forum B contains subforums X, Y and Z.
I want all of the users of my site to be able to view and fully participate in Forum A. That’s fine.
However, I want all of the users of my site to be able to fully view Forum B, but for only users with specific permissions to be able to post there.
For example, a user from User Group X will be able to view topics and threads in subforums X, Y and Z, but can only post in subforum X. A user from User Group Y can see subforums X, Y and Z but can only post to User Group Y, and so on.
Right now I’ve achieved part of what I need with Robin Wilson’s “Private groups” bbpress. Unfortunately, with this plugin, users who don’t have permission to access a forum can’t view it – the plugin pushes them to a 404 page or a redirect substitute. I want users to still be able to fully view the forums, just not to be able to post without permission.
Does anyone have any advice as to how to implement something like this?
(I have crossposted this to the Private groups plugin support board. I hope there are no issues with that.)
