• A site with s2 and bbPress.

    Three levels of s2 registration, 1, 2 and 3.

    What I’m trying to accomplish is have levels 1 and 2 automatically be participants in bbPress. This is the default, so that’s done.

    For level 3 membership I want the default bbPress access to be “spectator”. Not so easily done yet.

    I have tried the Capability Manager plugin. For s2 level 3 I have deselected participant and left spectator enabled, but that results in the default bbPress permission being set to “no role for these forums”.

    Anyone know a way to make this happen? Thanks.

  • bbPress roles are different that normal wordpress roles, so WP plugins like user role manager and capabilities manger etc will not function as you expect

    see this article about bbpress roles and capabilities, you could perhaps code something up on your own to function as you need

    Custom Capabilities

    or otherwise, look at restricting forums as explained in Other Integrations > bbPress Plugin Integration (2.0+ plugin version) in your S2member plugin menu


    Thanks much. I will check out the info at that link.

    This is my 3 weeks late reply. 🙂 It’s been a busy month.


    Have you found any solution for this?

    I’m looking for ways to do the same with a membership plugin.

    Free user can read.
    Paying user can reply.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Hi. Sorry for much much delayed response.

    Try out BBP Private Groups and see it does what you are looking for.
