F.A.Q

Yes, we can. 🙂

We support restricts BP standard components and customization components to users based on user roles, it looks like this:


You can setting which buddypress components opened for Non-Members / Guest users, and which buddypress components opened for logged in users based on user roles, for example:

1: You can setting allow Non-Members / Guest users only open buddypress members page, but they can not check buddypress members profile pages,

2: You can setting subscriber users can open buddypress members page and buddypress members profile pages, but they can not open buddypress messages pages.

3: You can setting paid members can open buddypress member pages and buddypress member profile pages, and they can not buddypress messages pages…

4: …. and so on

Can we only protect buddypress pages, but open wordpress pages?

Yes we can. Some users requested to only protect buddypress pages, and open all other pages related wordpress section to non member users. We have realized this feature, just click the option “All Other Sections On Your Site Will Be Opened to Guest”, then other sections, for example page, post, store… and so on will be opened to non member users, at the same time, when they want to view your buddypress sections, they will be redirect to your redirect page which setting in admin area.

Can we Login and Logout auto redirect based on user roles?

Yes, we can 🙂

you can setting after login redirect URLs and after logout URLs based on user roles. For example, you can setting users which have subscriber role redirect to their activity page after they logged in, and let users who have woocommerce customer role redirected to their shop account page,or redirect editors to their messages page… and so on.

This feature is very easy to use, please logged in your admin area, open BP Members Only menu, click redirect setting sub menu item, you can find we have listed all roles automatically, just select roles which you want to setting, select redirect method from 3 redirect method:

1: Default, this means do nothing and just follow  buddypress and wordpress default behaviour.

2: Referer, this means after logged in, user will be redirect to the same page before login

3: Redirect to Certain URL, you can enter any page URL in your domain, users which have related roles will be redirected to this URL after they logged in.
