Hello. I have a forum which is for 'members only'.
I have set all categories and forums to be 'Standard Access' for 'Contributors' and No Access for Subscribers and Guests. I've also added an Admin note in Tools > Misc. This is all working great 🙂
The problem - I'll walk through the steps I'm taking.
1) Go to the forum (URL: mywebsite/forum). I'm seeing my admin note telling me that this is a member only form, and I can't see any of the forums or categories.
2) Click log in (URL: mywebsite/forum/?wpforo=signin). I've provide user name and password, and complete the Captcha.
3) I've logged in and I'm at the forum home (URL: mywebsite/forum). I'm seeing exactly the same as I was in step 1...
4) If I click 'login' again, I'm not asked for user name and password, and I can see the forums and categories(URL: mywebsite/forum/?wpforo=signin)
Please help, this will really confuse my users if I can't fix it !
This is either, https:// issue or cache plugin conflict.
If you have a cache plugin please exclude the forum page from that cache. Please read the whole information here: https://wpforo.com/community/postid/37150/
Make sure your website protocol is the same, don't call the forum with http:// protocol if the website protocol is https:// , please read the similar case: https://wpforo.com/community/postid/38910/
Brilliant, it's all working now - it was a cache issue. I've excluded mywebsite/forum and it's working great now.
