i set up a forum with different sub-forums.
Some of them are public but the rest will be private (only for members with special membership level). I use BBpress.
But i cant protect the different forum. Where is the problem?
Each Sub-Forum is protected on different level, but Ememember doesnt care
thanks!!July 17, 2012 at 4:18 am #43452
BBPress doesn’t do any content filtering on the sub forums which is why it is not taking those protection options. There is a feature in eMember that will allow you protect a sub forum page. Use the option explained in the following documentation (you will be using the specified page lockdown option):
You can use this to lockdown the sub forum pages by specifying the URL of the sub forum page in eMember settings.
Also, please take a look at this documentation:November 22, 2013 at 7:56 am #43453
Can you tell us how to create the corresponding wordpress user accounts for members that signed up before we had ‘Automatically Create WordPress User:’ enabled?

Go to eMember admin functions menu and check the “Create WordPress User Account for the members that do not have one” section.
Please read the second entry in this post too:November 23, 2013 at 4:58 am #43455
Ok great, thanks.
Just one thing – it says that the new passwords will be set to “changeme” (The user will have to change the password to their liking). I thought that it said in this thread that when a user signs-in to their eMember account, BBPress will recognize that and they will automatically be signed-in to the forum as well. How does this work – do they need to have two different passwords and sign-in twice?November 23, 2013 at 9:40 pm #43456
When you use eMember and bbpress, your user will only log in via eMember (just one set of login) and thats it. When a member logs into the site and goes to your bbPress forum area, they will be able to see the topics according to the protection you set.
Please read our bbPress integration documentation here:November 26, 2013 at 5:40 am #43457
Ok, but will they have to change their password as it states?November 26, 2013 at 6:14 am #43458
Nope, no password change is necessary.December 10, 2013 at 8:38 am #43459
Ok so I have created WordPress user accounts for our members – but BBPress doesn’t seem to be acknowledging the accounts when logged in through eMember like you say.
When logged in through eMember, if the forum is set to ‘Public’ the message reads ‘You must be logged in to create new topics.’ When the forum is set to ‘Private’ the page goes to 404. I am only able to view the forum if I am signed in to the WordPress dashboard.
Is there some other setting we have to turn on somewhere to get this to work?

Have you enabled the following options (it is mentioned in the documentation I shared in my previous post)?December 11, 2013 at 5:42 am #43461
Ok thanks. But now there is another problem happening. Once I enable those settings for some reason it is making it so that users can no longer log-in to their member accounts. They attempt to log-in, it appears to work and they begin to be sent to the after-log-in page, but then they get redirected back to the log-in page and the form is blank and they are not logged-in and there is no mention of what just happened. And it is impossible to log-in. I have confirmed this myself on multiple accounts.
In case it helps to understand what’s going on – the after-log-in page is also the page that is specified for ‘Enable Specific Page Lockdown’ and the log-in page is also the page that is specified for ‘Auto Redirect to a Specific Page’. So in this sense the after-log-in page is treating the user as if they are not a logged-in user. But the log-in page does not show an error when you log-in, rather it appears that you are being logged-in correctly and it then sends you to the after-log-in page, which then sends you all the way back.
At any rate something strange is happening. As soon as I enable these settings (‘Automatically log into WordPress: and Automatically log into eMember:), we suddenly become unable to log-in to member accounts as described above. As soon as I disable those settings the problem goes away.
Please help, thanks…December 11, 2013 at 9:59 pm #43462
I will have to take a look at your setup for this. I have sent you an email.December 11, 2013 at 11:06 pm #43463
In ‘All in One WP Security’ plugin the “manual approval for new registration” was enabled. No need to use/enable that option when you are using eMember (otherwise the plugin won’t be able to create the member accounts fully).
