    Further testing:
    – I’ve changed to TwentyFifteen theme
    – deactivated all plugins except for BuddyPress and bbPress

    I still can’t see topics that the user should be able to see. And they can access a private forum they aren’t a member of.

    Where do I even begin to figure out what is going wrong with this site?

    I just ran 2 forum repairs:
    – Recalculate private and hidden forums
    – Repair BuddyPress Group Forum relationships

    and now I have a different problem. I’ve actually been experiencing this problem on and off now for about 2 weeks and I’m starting to pull my hair out!

    So now if I go to the forum list (at the category level) I can see that there are topics in the child forums. But when I click through to the child forum it tells me “Oh bother! No topics were found here!” This is for a group that the user is a member of. There are definitely topics in that forum.

    If I change the user from a Participant to a Moderator they can see the topics.

    If I change them back to a Participant and then toggle the forum from private to public to private they can see the topics again. I have done this toggling of forum visibility several times over the past week and it only lasts for a day or two, then I’m back at this problem.

    ooh what about this one for the file uploads:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-custom-fields-type/

    Can anyone advise which of these options works best?

    thanks

    ok – what about if I use a media gallery that adds another tab to their profile, then they could add unlimited images – scans of their credentials.

    If I use rtMedia’s plugin I can customise it to accept pdfs too – http://rtcamp.com/rtmedia/docs/developer/rtmedia-hooks/rtmedia_allowed_types/

    But then how do I test to see if they’ve done it and send a reminder email to the member and to admin??

    (PS – I feel a bit silly here talking away to myself – please join in the conversation!!)

    What if I just set up xprofile fields in a separate profile field group? If I use a field type of multi line text box then they could enter unlimited credentials. This field could then be searched couldn’t it?

    hmmmm, but then how to get the file upload in?..

    ok, doing some more research and I’ve found this plugin which would possibly work by only showing the credentials profile fields for the experts. I’m not using S2member, but I am looking at other membership plugins, or I assume I could just use a capability manager to create new roles….

    Yes? No? Maybe?

    ok – back to Google for some more research…

    thank you @shanebp.

    I only know enough about filters to get myself into trouble! I’ve just had a look at that one. Are you suggesting that I remove the teacher from the array so they don’t show in the list of members to send to? Is that how that works?

    How would that work from the member/student perspective?

    I really appreciate any guidance you can give me.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Stas. How does that work? Do I have 1 main lecture and then choose it as the parent for all lectures which are then sorted by Lecture Order?
    So:
    Parent
    -Week 1
    -Week 2
    -etc

    Or do I need to select the previous week each time, so I’ll end up with 52 levels (one for each week of the year) cascading?
    Parent
    -week 1
    – – week 2
    – – – week 3
    – – – – etc

    My preference is for the first scenario. If that isn’t the default, can I make it happen some way?

    Thank you.

    if memory serves, you need to first create a group in the Buddypress frontend. Then in the Admin area of the group you turn on Courseware for that group. I think I had to edit the url of the page for the activation to work as a / was in the wrong place. Once the Courseware plugin is activated, everything else happens in the frontend.

    Sorry – doing this from memory, don’t have access to a site to test at the moment. Hope it helps anyway!

    @chaoti Thanks for dropping by!!! I appreciate your comment.

    I found it – was just very deeply buried and not very obvious!

    All fixed now.

    Hello, anyone????

    Thanks @mercime that’s what I thought. But, that seems very odd to me – why not have one that works on both types of forums. This is a pretty basic thing to offer to members.

    I know enough php to get myself into trouble, with some guidance do you think I could perhaps edit that plugin to make it work on group forums?

    thanks for your help

    Wow @mercime – awesome, thanks!

    I followed your instructions, plus added the css in the link above to style.css in the child theme. The only other change I needed to make was adding this to align the text with the avatar image:
    `div#item-header-avatar img {
    align: left;
    }`

    And so far everything looks good!

    Thank you again – you are such an amazing resource here in the support forums and I can’t thank you enough!!

    Anyone? Surely someone has some wisdom to share with me!
