    Hello,

    I’m hoping one of you experienced BP experts can point me in the right direction here.

    I have a members site and I’m integrating BP as a community section. My members plugin (Digital Access Pass) registers members and synchs to WP and BP automatically. So, essentially when someone registers for the site they are already BP members.

    Here’s the thing…

    I want to respect my member’s privacy and I’d like for them not to be sent messages or friended until they join a group. Since, my site sells other products and is not solely a social media site, I’d like for their BP profile’s only to be visible to the BP community if they decide to join a group and engage in a discussion. How can I accomplish this?

    Right now everyone is visible under site.com/members which I definitely have to hide. Ideally, I’d like for each group to have a separate member list. This way, a user would have to specifically join each group before being public. That would be perfect!

    Thanks for all of the help, this forum has been very helpful!

    O.K., I finally figured it out myself. So in case you came across this thread in search of a resolution, here it is…

    Edit your .htaccess file on your server. This can be done by manually editing it via FTP or with the Yoast SEO plugin directly in WordPress (which is obviously easier).

    Put the following code in .htaccess file. If you don’t know where or how to insert the code check out http://www.squidoo.com/301

    Anyway, in the code below, I’m redirecting only http://www.YOURWEBSITE.com/members to a location of my choice. In this case, I’m redirecting it to my homepage, but you can choose any location you like. Make sure to leave the ^ and $ or else it will not work properly. It basically tells the redirect to only move that single URL and nothing else associated with it. That way when a user enters a group, they can still see all of the members in that group. Here it is…Enjoy!

    RedirectMatch 301 ^/members/$ http://www.YOURWEBSITE.com/
