WP Symposium Toolbar
[resolved] make a forum private (3 posts)

    Looking for the docs on this but need to know if a forum can be made private and invisible to users without permissions?

    Assuming so do widgets such as recent forum posts hide entries from forums which the user does not have permissions to view?

    Hi - no worries :)

    In WP Symposium, you should have a look at the so-called forum categories, to display them depending on membership. As far the widgets I'm not sure but I think they respect these settings.

    If you intend to consider the forum as a whole, you could play with a role management plugin to display the page itself, and plugins like Dynamic Widgets to display widgets, depending on user role. Similarly with WPS Toolbar, you may display a custom menu in the Toolbar, to show a link to the forum or not.

    I know you closed the topic, but I thought this could bring some light.
