BuddyPress Section as Private Section of WordPress Site

  • Hello all,

    I apologize in advance for my ignorance regarding BuddyPress.

    I currently have a WordPress site for my organization. I just installed the BuddyPress plug-in and am looking to allow certain people (our international partners, but nobody else) to be able to log-in to our website.

    1) How can I create a log-in tab?
    2) How can I ensure that only certain people are able to create user accounts and log-in?
    3) Once those people are logged-in, is there any way to have a private section of the site that only they can access? On there would be access to fellow members’ profiles, an ability to post documents or photos to a forum thread, private message other members, etc?

    Thank you!!

    The s2member plugin will do everything you want, and a whole LOT more too! Watch out though, you can easily get lost in all the features and options, so take it slow and follow the startup instructions closely. But everything is very well documented, and there’s a pretty good help forum available if you get stuck.

    There is also a new bridge plugin for s2member (or any other membership plugin) that enables you and your users to create private profiles that become visible to certain membership levels. It automatically inserts an “Upgrade” link in member profiles that displays to users who don’t yet have view permissions.
