I have set up the forum plugin and have the forum on a page

Hi,

I have set up the forum plugin and have the forum on a page on my site. However, I had my friend test it and it is requiring a membership login and password for them to post on the forum. How do I set that up? I tried adding her as a subscriber under users but that actually let her into my dashboard of the whole site.

Thank you.

    Hello Amanda,

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    Just like any other forum, this plugin also requires a user to be logged in to the site.

    How do I set that up? I tried adding her as a subscriber under users but that actually let her into my dashboard of the whole site.

    The subscriber has a very limited role and can't do anything on your site. You can create a new role using a role manager plugin and restrict access to the site backend and use a plugin which will let them login to the site from the front end.

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers
