use a login page for everyone

  • codyb


    I’m using the BuddyPress default home theme and I would like to know if there is a way I can make it to where you can’t see anything posted to the site until a user log’s in. Basically when they enter my URL, I want it to take them to a login page where they have to be a member in order to login and see anything, just like it is on myspace or facebook. Does this exist already or is this something I’m going to have to do on my own?

    You might take a look at the Members-Only plugin from WordPress:

    It prevents anyone not logged from seeing the blog/site and directs them to the login page (or you can choose a different page).

    Seems to work with WPMU, but you’ll have to test it on your site to be sure.



    Only note to consider with this members-only plugin is that it redirects users trying to get to the main blog/site, but if they have URL’s to other “pages” members pages, etc… they can get to those directly. The redirect doesn’t apply to those pages/sections. (at least not yet)

    If you find a solution to this problem wpmu/buddypress-wide, please let me know. I’m looking for a similar solution.



    Privacy controls are in the development roadmap, I think for version 1.3, release date tbd.

    Until then you could use this code, but it doesn’t have a working ‘restricted area’ message with ajax or redirect, so you’ll have to code something yourself if you want to use it.

    In this thread Chris Kenniburg mentions a Set Privacy Settings plugin.
