Totally private Buddypress site

    Hi – I’ve spent the past 36 hours researching and installing and uninstalling and coding and trying everything… All I want to do is have a Buddypress site that is totally hidden except for the login/register screen to all uninvited visitors. This seems to be a tricky issue, from what I’m seeing online… Can anyone tell me the simplest way to go about this? I’ve tried various plugins which work on my non-Buddypress sites (Members by J. Tadlock, Approve New Users, Peter’s Login Redirect) but none of them, and no combination of them will work with Buddypress.

    I’m puzzled as to why it’s so complicated to make a Buddypress site totally private… am I missing something??

    Thanks for your help -

    BuddyPress overides urls and such. Regular WordPress plugins do not always take BP into consideration. BP 1.7 should work better with WordPress plugins as it uses page.php to display content instead of hijacking urls

    Is there any reason why the older plugins that made Buddypress private haven’t been updated? It seems like such a common request. Well, here’s hoping that 1.7 will solve that problem! When is it due out?

    Plugins usually get abandoned because the developer has no benefit on maintaining them. You can try to fix one of the free plugins or google a bit. Private sites have been talked a bunch and there are many solutions. I am working on a paid plugin that has privacy features with custom login/register pages that privatize a site. Will be available next week.

    Roger. Please let me know here if you will; I may have wandered off, trying yet another solution…
