I am trying to use BuddyPress on a multisite installation and would like to have a private BuddyPress community, but with blogs in the other public.
I understand that this is the purpose of Private BuddyPress but, if I allow registration at any of the other blogs, just for the purpose of adding comments, BuddyPress and Private BuddyPress see them as "registered" and they gain access to all of the BuddyPress components I am trying to protect.
This is not a situation with premium members, or paid upgrades. I just want to make sure that any members who are NOT specifically members of the BuddyPress site cannot see it.
Is there any way to configure Private BuddyPress so that it either restricts access by user role (eg. only roles ABOVE subscriber), or that it recognizes which users are assigned to which blogs?
