Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Registration Options » Private Network is Visible; Also Pending Member

    Hello,

    I am new to BuddyPress and BP Registration, so perhaps I am missing something. I have checked “Only registered or approved members can view BuddyPress/bbPress pages (Private Network)” but when i am logged out i can see everything on the BuddyPress page.

    Also, the WP toolbar indicates a pending member, but when I click on it, the backend it takes me to does not show any pending members. I have to read the notification on the front end for the toolbar indicator to change. Is this right?

    Thank you.

    hey @jrotem, can you provide a link to the page in question? The plugin should be checking for the “is_buddypress()” boolean function. I’m curious if for whatever reason, it’s returning false for that page. The plugin only protects the BuddyPress/bbPress areas, it won’t restrict from the ENTIRE site.

    Possible the toolbar is cached still, but I would need to investigate that topic a bit further to provide something more actionable on your part, or if it’s something we need to take care of.

    Now it’s not! I kept testing by logging out — maybe something was initially cached. Now the BP section defaults to the homepage. Cool! That’s correct, right?
    (For reference, the page is (For reference, the page is https://mvneighbors.org/groups/.)

    Thank you for your quick reply!

    When logged out, that’s the behavior to expect. When logged in but with a pending approval, the user should be redirected to their profile, and confined there in regards to trying to navigate to other BP areas. If you have a WooCommerce shop, I could still visit there and purchase an item with full user capabilities to the user level I have.

    Sounds like things are working now.

    Thanks again!
