allowing non-members to view public forums, groups and other restricted pages???

  • juan_stephano


    Hey guys, I hope you can help me.

    I have been setting up my buddypress install for a few weeks now (tinkering with many plugins and trying to get it just right before it goes public) and I’ve run into a couple of issues which I have been unable to resolve.

    I would like some parts of my site which are restricted to be viewable to non-members (or members who are not logged in) and some parts which are accessible to be restricted. My WordPress/BuddyPress settings are all set for public viewing/registering.

    Perfect: My Homepage is set to Activity Stream with selected activity types hidden from non-members and this is working well.
    Would like restricted: My Members page allows non-member to view my members list which I would like to change so If the user is not logged in they will be redirected to the register page.
    Would like partially unrestricted: My Groups page restricts non-member and redirects them to the register page but I would like non-members to have access to my Groups List but not individual groups.
    Would like unrestricted: My Forums page restricts non-member access but I would like all my public group forums to be accessible by all users.

    I am using plugins: BuddyPress Links, Jet Event System and Achievements which all add a nav button to BuddyPress header bar but all these pages have restricted access too. I would like all these pages to be viewable by everyone.

    Standard public blog pages created in wp-admin are accessible to non-members and I wondered if it is something I have done to my install while playing with plugins. I’ve been searching for a way to fix this for ages now on google and even in bp code (mostly theme which is bp default by the way) but can’t find anything. Pages redirect to ****/register/?private=true which shows a red message bar at the top which says: This is a private network. You must register first before fully interacting with the rest of the community.

    Please help – I hope I’ve provided enough info (didn’t want to post a proper link to my site as I don’t want it public until it’s ready.

    Oh and thanks to all wp/bp/plugin devs you are awesome!
