    I have spent a lot of time searching for a way to restrict the bbPress forums based on User Rank. I found a lot of topics asking for this, but I could not find any solutions.

    In the end, I decided to write my own plugin to solve this (seemed like a fun challenge) that is based on Members plugin. I thought that it would be good to share with others that have the same issue I did.

    As the disclaimer says, this is my first plugin. I started working with WordPress about 2 or 3 weeks ago, therefore it may not be the best written plugin, but it works.

    In case this topic should go else where, let me know. Since it is based on Members plugin and there are a few topics here asking about bbPress I feel that is is a good fit.

    thanks ezakiel, this is something badly needed by bbpress community :)

    would this also work with user role editor wp plugin ?

    User Role Editor and Members are fundamentally different. URE is used to manage the capabilities of users and roles (create new roles..etc), while Members plugin manages which roles can see which posts.

    Any roles you do create with URE will be usable with Members plugin and the extension I wrote. The new roles will appear in Content Permissions when creating new forums. Check the roles you want to have access to the forum, and thats it.

    This is GREAT ! Spend like 8 hours implementing this myself, just didnt wrap it into a plugin. Could you maybe add filtering on topics as well, so that the topic widgets and bbp_has_topics works as well ?

    Sure, should be fairly simple to implement. I have to an update to have it support filtering the BuddyPress activity stream, I will use that time to look at implementing filtering for topics as well.

    Subscribe to this topic or my site. I will post once I update the plugin. The update should be done sometime next week.

    If enough people are interested, I might make this an actual plugin on WordPress downloads.

    actual plugin on wp directory would be a great idea, this functionality is a BIG missing piece of the bbpress puzzle, restricting forum access by groups is a standard feature of phpbb etc

    but, i'm having some probs getting this to work properly on a test site i've been hacking away at, i am using members, URE & s2Members as well, prob time for yet another caps reset, need more time for testing on my end

    from what i understand, all of these plugins are fairly common on elaborate bbpress sites w multiple roles, and a working plugin for restricting forum>topic>reply access by wordpress/bbpress user roles currently does not exist but would be very popular i think :)

    ideally, a stand alone plugin which does not require but will work alongside the other plugins i mentioned above, just a metabox in admin area on edit forum page listing roles and read/write yes/no radio buttons should do it ?

    prob a good idea to start to topic on bbpress forums too, get feedback form bbpress devs and more users etc

    thanks again :)

    boom, after a bit more testing this is working great alongside s2members, URE & members, so we finally have private groups by user role in bbpress :)

    thanks again, looking forward to seeing this developed further, filtering topics etc as above

    Did you get to fixing the topics ?

    I started looking at it. Yesterday I released an update that fixed the issue with BuddyPress and activity feed. That was higher priority since it showed the actual post content vs just the title.

    I had to reinstall my PC so I lost a lot of time. I am hoping to release the topic filtering soon.

    Subscribe to my site (email or rss) as I will be posting updates through there. Once I implement all the necessary filtering and make it so that it is not dependent on Members plugin I will be releasing it to WordPress plugin repository.

    Something is wrong with your site. I cant comment.. But the location of the topics query is here

    \wp-content\plugins\bbpress\includes\topics\template-tags.php:

    bbp_has_topics. I have already begun this but with very mediocre results, i cant control ordering somehow and it shows stickies regardles of choice.. I had to make a custom function to not interfeer with normal behavior.

    function tehnik_bpp_get_permitted_topics($topic_list)
    {
        if(function_exists('members_can_user_view_post'))
        {
            $filtered_topics = array();
    
            //Get Current User ID
            $user_id = wp_get_current_user()->ID;
    
            foreach ($topic_list as $topic)
            {
                $topic_id = $topic->ID;
    
                $forum_id = bbp_get_topic_forum_id($topic_id);
    
                if(members_can_user_view_post($user_id, $forum_id))
                {
                    array_push($filtered_topics, $topic_id);

            }
    
            return (array) $filtered_topics;
        }
    
        return true;
    }
    
    function tehnik_bpp_get_permitted_topic_ids($topic_query)
    {
        //Check if Members plugin function exists. No need to reinvent the wheel..use what is available
        if (!function_exists('members_can_user_view_post')) return array();

    Sorry for late reply, I get to work on this only during my free time.

    Thanks for pointing me to that file. I looked at it so many times and missed that code every time. I think I have it working now. I will be releasing an update once I clean things up a bit.

    I tested the commenting system on my site and it is working fine for me. Did you get any errors?

    I'll chime in here. This is badly needed functionality. I'm sure it is worth listing in the repository. As soon as word gets out in bbpress, there will be plenty of takers I'm sure.

    Thanks Aleks.
