4.3 out of 5 stars
Can I limit access to a Buddypress forum this way?
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have a paid-for membership site and I want to add a forum to it. I want to limit access to the forum to the paid members of my membership site. That means that if you aren't a paid member at my membership site then you can not access the forum. It's okay if non-paying members can see the front page of the forum and the front page of any category page within the forum, but I don't want them to be able to read any of the threads on the forum.

Do you have any suggestions for how I can accomplish this? I'm using the DAP (Digital Access Pass) membership WP plugin on my membership site.

4 Stars for Basic Styling
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have been using this plugin for a community for quite a while now, but buddypress styling is old now and there are competitors out with awesome styling compared to buddypress. The only thing keeping buddypress alive is the free features.

All they need now is the styling being updated to like Ultimate Member and Peepso. This would be a 5 star plugin. I don't think the styles should be our job to add. Should already come with it. Ultimate Member and Peepso don't charge for the styling, they charge for the extensions.

So really I don't see the reason to be holding it back from buddypress either. Since I am not the hard coding kind of person.

Very useful

Very useful plugin and easy to install and setup. This is exactly what I need to build a group of social friends.

I can't thank enough for the plugin. One of the best plugins that saved me a ton of time and money.

Thank you BuddyPress Devs for building such an amazing plugin.

Can't post on their forum

So I really wanted to try out this plugin but I can't seem to ask one question on their forum. No, i didn't add any links or code and all it was, was this question:

I am creating a forum and currently using "Profile Builder" but there are not that many options for it. I use it because members don't need to assess the backend of the site where all the Administrators are allowed, and where I do not want regular users at all. Am I able to use BuddyPress and have it accessible to front end users? I hope that all made sense?

That is all I did and can't so I take it that buddypress isn't accessible to front end users which makes this useless to me.

I love this plugin
