Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Registration Options » Allow people to view groups / members even with the plugin turned on

    It appears that once this plugin is enabled, it locked down the members/groups from the public. We like the BP options but want to opt out of this feature.

    So people still need to be approved but should not lock them out.


    Offer a way to show an alternative page if someone doesn’t have access to groups/members.

    If you have just “Members need to be approved” then the site should act as “read only” without ability to interact until approved. If you include the “Private Network” option as well, then it’s not even read-only. They would be limited to just their profile until approved.

    If you’re wanting a mix of read-only + private network, let me know.

    Hopefully that clarifies some things and provides a way forward for your needs.

    Thanks for your quick response. I am thinking an option where it just moderates the user but doesn’t affect the website. Without BP options, people can view my members and groups. What the client wants. With WP Options, they can’t view the members’ page or the groups’ page.

    What would be great is an alternative “not registered” page or redirect. At least I can say “hey, you can’t view this until you become a member”. What it does now just redirects to the home page which isn’t clear or communicative.

    Thanks for developing this plugin. It helps the spam attracting BP sites.

    Sorry for the long delay in response here, I did not receive notifications like I usually do, and missed seeing them.

    Can you confirm what you ideally have for these two settings?

    Trying to mentally work out the restraints and thus also functionality in our plugin that will be available.

    @michael, you are correct. The BB theme people who recommended this plugin, then told me it was the reason it was locking down my WP. So they deactivated it 🙂

    I never checked the settings carefully. Thanks
