I am having trouble granting access to our BuddyPress Groups area to users in our Membership plugin

Buddypress Site: http://gamers3.com
Master site: http://zombieorpheus.com

We have installed the Membership plugin on one of our BuddyPress sites in order to give our kickstarter backers access to exclusive content for behind the scenes content.

Unfortunately, I cannot seem to grant access to /groups on gamers3.com (the BuddyPress groups page). I have managed to grant access to specific groups (http://gamers3.com/groups/hands-of-fate-kickstarter-backers/) but not to the core /groups page.

Do you have any suggestions?

Also, I would like some help in figuring out how to grant access to a particular buddypress group to a particular class of members in the membership plugin.

Do you have any advice for that?

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    Did you try and use the URL groups feature ? Its absolutely amazing.

    With it, you can restrict any WordPress or even BuddyPress url, even using regular expressions.

    So you could, for instance, restrict access to any url containing the term 'member'.

    I hope that should get you sorted out.

    Please advise.

    Cheers, PC

    Hi dobynsbc,

    When you configure an access level in Membership, you can grant access to specific groups by adding the Groups component to the active rules area. From your question it appears that you did this.

    You can grant access to BuddyPress pages such as the Groups page by adding the BuddyPress Pages component to the active rules area and set the desired rules.

    Hope this helps

    Tom – I think we have this issue resolved, although I have a number of people on a MS installation struggling with resolving membership account access between sites. If I can't solve the bug we're experiencing I'll create a new post.
