User with multiple groups (bbpress)

  • alcwho


    Hi all,

    I am very new to bbpress. I got a quick question regarding to the user setup.

    Basically, when a new user registers, i’d like to assign him/her to a specific forum(s) he/she can create a post (or edit his own post).

    How can i do that?

    That’s a plugin called “Private groups”, but it seems that i need to assign ‘role’ in the bbpress, then the ‘role’ attaches to a specific group. That’s not a perfect way.

    For example, if User X assigned to a ‘participant’ which attaches to ‘group 1’, then User X can access a forum Q with ‘group 1’ only access. However, i don’t want User Y with role ‘participant’ is able to access forum Q. In this case, what should I do? or any good plugin I can use?

    Idea case is:
    I can assign each new register user (or existing) to a specific group, then he can access a forum with specific group access. For example:
    User A –> assign Group 1 –> can access Forum X
    User B –> assign Group 1 and 2 –> can access Forum X and Y
    “Role” will not affect “group” decision.

    Please kindly help. I search around but with no luck so far.

    Many thanks in advance.

    push…can someone shed me light on this? many thanks.

    I’m confused about what you’re trying to do, but if you want to restrict access to forums, then, yes, private groups are an excellent option. First, create a forum in wp-admin, then create a private group. Then, in the group management tab, check the box “Yes, I want this group to have a forum” and select the forum you just created.

    Then, only users who belong to private group will be able to use that forum.
