How to restrict Buddypress user registration to invite only

  • kae9


    I want to create a private Buddypress network, the admins will send email invitations to the members. No one can register unless they receive an email invitation.

    Is there a setting or plugin that will allow this, or is there a workaround to create this such as password protecting the registration page?

    Alternatively the admins could create the member account and an email would be send to the member with their username/password. In this case I could simple close user registrations in the settings, correct?

    You can turn off user registrations in Settings>>General then I believe you can add the Invite Anyone plugin to allow members to invite others, you’d then need to add the invite anyone widget in a way that it only displays for admin. It’s doable, with a bit of work.



    It appears from the comments on Invite Anyone Plugin that you need to have user registrations enabled or no one can register at all.
    But I’ll test it, will be good if it works, thanks.
