[resolved] Can I redirects non-registered users from a private forum page (3 posts)

    I am using the Buddy Press Plugin and BB Press forum plugin

    I would like for non-registered visitors to SEE what forums are available on my site, but NOT contribute OR see the topics without signing up.

    I've learned that apparently this is not possible.

    I have set the forums to private, but now users can’t even SEE the forums. When they click on my forums page, they get an error message saying there are no forums here.

    Possible Solutions?:

    I’d like to at least be able to do one of the following

    Change the “Oh bother” message (and also the “page not found” message that shows in place of the individual forum page) to something, like “please register to view forums”.

    Or at least show a custom alternative PAGE for non-registered users who click on the link, but show the forums page for logged in users.
    any ideas. Hopefully there is a simple workaround that doesn’t involve child copies, as I would like to keep receiving updates.

    Any ideas? Thanks

    Try doing something like a search for "Buddy Press redirect" and see what shows up.

    To fix this horrible problem I just created a public "welcome" forum with information on how to sign up.
