Member Area - Confused! (2 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I really hope you guys are able to help me here. My project is simple, and what I have to do is the following:

    1. Set up a standard WP site, with pages, posts and such [DONE]
    2. Set up a member area, with the following features:
    - Members should log in to get to the site (hidden page)
    - Members should be able to post something (a forum / wall will do)

    This is basically where I'm at - and I'm having many difficulties in creating a member area. What I have done so far is:

    http://www.eazyguide.dk/dialis (this is the WP test-site i'm working on)

    - When users click "go to memberpage" or "login" they will have to login before they see the hidden page "members". I created a page called "members", which is supposed to have the forum/wall and other information on subpages.

    PROBLEM: I have excluded the subpages from the head page "members" - however, I wish to show these submenus once the users have logged in and been redirected to the hidden head-page "members"
    This i cannot find a solution for :-(

    Furthermore, I am wondering how I can keep the users (except the admin) our of the WP dashboard. I know about the roles of the users - my problem here is:

    - If I set a user to "subscriber" so he/she can only read things, will that affect the ability for logged in members to post on a forum (if this forum E.G. is installed using a plugin) ?

    Hope it made some sort of sense - if not please say so, and I will reply imidiately :-)

    In advance, thanks for your help!

    UPDATE:

    I have now installed a "login" widget plugin. When I make a user, and log in via that widget, it seems to be working - the member is taken straight to the hidden page "Members".

    Now my "only" problem is how to show the subpages to "Members", which of course have also been hidden from the normal "pages" widget (normal users should not see these subpages, unless they log in)

    Can this be done, or should i find a plugin to make these subpages for a specific hidden "head page" ?
