BuddyPress: how do I hide Community elements from non-members?

Hi:

my client's site is:
http://72.18.130.197/~hoopinst
(production server)

Question: What do I need to change so that non-members can't see the Community parts of the site:
Membership,
Activity
Members
Groups
Forums

Thanks so much,

Terri

    Hi James & Aaron:

    thanks so much.

    I'm starting from scratch - had a crazy redirect and it's fixed now.

    I'm installed and set up the Membership plugin: the site is now here:

    http://www.hoopinstructors.com

    I have three problems - I'm listing them because perhaps they are related to Membership and I am hoping that one of you kind folks will take a look at the site and give me a sense of where to look for my error:
    1. Someone subscribed without paying - I have to dig deep to understand why
    2. posts with the Free category are not showing up on the front page for non-members
    3. as above, I want to hide the Community menu, or choose what Community element to show on the front page to non-members. I will work on that next, after the Membership settings are correct.

    more detail about problem #2:

    a. I have 3 blog posts whose category is Free (not the only category)
    b. the rest of my July posts are under the Premium category - they are hidden, as they should be
    c. I set the Membership plugin so that non-members should be able to see the Free posts.
    e. but the Free posts are not showing up at all.

    any suggestions?

    thanks,

    Terri

    @Aaron..you guys have a blog privacy plugin? I did not know that.

    Re: your questions:

    1. Someone subscribed without paying - I have to dig deep to understand why

    - Did they get access though, or did they just become a user (the latter is nothing to worry about)

    2. posts with the Free category are not showing up on the front page for non-members

    - Have you had a good read through the membership installation info... there's a lot there that might be able to assist here

    3. as above, I want to hide the Community menu, or choose what Community element to show on the front page to non-members. I will work on that next, after the Membership settings are correct

    - I'm hoping the documentation can help you out.

    Also, it might be worth you starting a new thread as this is now membership plugin territory.

    Cheers, James

    Hi James:

    thanks for your note: good idea, I will start a new thread and try to explain more clearly.
