Awesome, thanks very much for looking into it!

Any further input on this issue – the site’s getting close to launch and I want to make sure all is okay with the forum roles.

Posted: Tuesday Jun 4th, 2013 at 10:31 am #51326

Just as a test, I took a member that had a role of -No role for these forums- and I was able to post in the forum. When I logged back in as Admin their forum role had been changed to Participant. So maybe it’s not an issue? I’d still like for someone to take a look at it though.

I just submitted the Private contact form with ftp and dashboard access info.

Unfortunately that didn’t help – I deactivated and then reactivated bbPress, but -No role for these forums- is still listed on profiles for all existing users.

Will this prevent them from posting in the forums the first time? If it doesn’t, then I’m okay with leaving this as is. But if it does, it’s critical that I get this changed…

I just did this, but it didn’t change anything – the Forum Role for my s2Members users (when I look at their profile) is still -No role for these forums-.

If I look at the capabilities, they do correctly show Participate and Spectate for s2Member levels 1-4, but it didn’t affect the existing users.

When I logged back in and looked at Capability Manager Enhanced again, boxes were ticked and just unticking the capability for s2Member Level 2 (while adjusting Level 3’s capabilities) worked perfectly. Forums are now restricted the way we wanted.

I found a non-s2Member function that works fine, thanks.

Ah – I see now – I got rid of User Role Editor and installed Capability Manager Enhanced. Now I can load s2member_level3 and I see a big array of capabilities – but all the checkboxes are empty.

I see access_s2member_level2, an empty checkbox. How do I now remove access_s2member_level2 from s2member_level3’s capabilities? Shouldn’t something be checked by default for Level 3?

Just to be clear – if I load any of the s2Member roles, ALL the checkboxes are empty. If I load a default WP role, some boxes are checked.

Posted: Friday May 10th, 2013 at 3:50 pm #49707

Okay – I’m in the User Role Editor plugin now. I want to do this:

-edit the s2member_level3 role to remove access_s2member_level2 capability

However there are no s2member_level# capabilities listed in User Role Editor at all, nothing to do with s2member except where you choose the role in the select box. Where do I find these capabilities to edit?


And this will fix it so that in bbPress, Level 3 members will no longer be able to see Level 2 forums? That’s what I need. I watched the videos on custom capabilities but I don’t think that will work in this case. If I’m wrong, please advise.

“Sort of. So you want one forum protected at Level 0 for everyone logged in, another for Level 1 users only, and another for Level 2 users only?”


That’s correct. I’m waiting to see if the client is happy with bbPress’ capabilities then will go into this more thoroughly. I just wanted to make sure it CAN be done.

Posted: Wednesday May 1st, 2013 at 11:23 pm #48980

Hmm – now that I think about it, I only need this protection on 2 forums, the third one every logged in user can see. But two will see only themselves and the open one.

So – level 1 is Members, everyone sees the Members forum.

Level 3 is Board of Directors, they can see Members and Board of Directors forums.

Level 2 is House of Delegates, they can see Members and House of Delegates forums.

So it’s not so much incremental, as locking a forum so that only 1 level can see it, but that level can also see the basic Members forum for all users. Does that make sense?

Thanks for the link – I’ll read carefully.

Because I’m using this to manage access level for a forum, would I be better off using custom capabilities since I can enter them in a field in the bbPress forum editing page? If I used conditionals, I don’t understand how I’d implement it…

Posted: Wednesday May 1st, 2013 at 3:01 pm #48939

Okay – I spoke with my client again and now we’re back to restricting forums by user level, which is great.

However, we need to restrict one forum to *only* one s2Member user level – not “this user level AND any above it.” Is there a way to do this with s2Member restrictions? Like maybe with a category or URI?

I saw this plugin:

But people say it’s not working currently.

Posted: Tuesday Apr 30th, 2013 at 9:44 pm #48865

My client’s not allowing any front-end registration anyway, so that should be okay…

Posted: Tuesday Apr 30th, 2013 at 9:04 pm #48858

I can *only* use the forum component of BuddyPress, is that correct? And if I create groups of certain people, will I be able to also use the s2Member roles to restrict access to forums, as well as my new groups? I’m assuming it works pretty much the same way as plain bbPress only with the group ability added…

Posted: Thursday Apr 18th, 2013 at 6:20 pm #47808

I did it with simple CSS: {
	content: "Hello, ";
} {
	content: "!";
Posted: Monday Jan 14th, 2013 at 9:29 pm #37558

Okay, that’s what I needed, thanks.

Posted: Monday Jan 14th, 2013 at 7:44 pm #37547

Thanks for the quick answer.

There won’t be any front-end registration on this site – the owners will be creating all member accounts manually. Can you confirm that we can set up any number of member levels with no fees attached (with S2Member Pro) and use them for our manually-added members?

And when we upload our 2000+ members via CSV, will be be able to assign them to one of the free member levels then (or can we mass-select them after upload and change their membership level at that point)?

Thanks Jason! That’s great to hear.

Posted: Friday Jan 11th, 2013 at 6:19 pm #37045

Anyone? We’re writing a quote and I’d love to know whether S2Member will work for this client or not…
