BP only for Role: Contributor and above
I have a situation where the BP part of the site / application is only for select users (read: employees).
That said, we only want the staff employees using the BP magic. They won’t be editing posts, etc.
Should I add a new Role and have a cap (say) ’employee”? Or remove caps from the Contributor role? And then maybe still add the ’employee’ cap to all other roles, such that Subscribers can still comment and get the plain ol’ WP experience, and then I’ll use the use_can(’employee’) to allow them into the BP functionality?
I presume I’m also gonna need a membership plugin to manage the access. Is there any one in particular that is known to play nice with BP (if that ever might be an issue). Or is the bottleneck in BP that I can take advantage of that keep non use_can(’employee’) out of the employee / BP area?
Lovin’ me some BP, but there’s just soooo much to wrap my head around sometimes 🙂
