So far i understand you use bbPress and now you want a members directory, and eventually some additionnal fields on user’s profiles. And most of this should be private or “members only”, right ?
>> Correct, combined with private bbpress forums on a website with also public content.
I have set the “members” page I created as private, but it is still displayed when I go on the page as a logged out user. Why is that so?
Would it work if I would not connect the “members” page with BuddyPress in the settings, set the page to private and pull the dynamic content for the members list by a stortcode?
I can read into the codex of course, but do I need to learn to code to use BuddyPress?
