Make forums public using membership plugin

I want to make the forums part of my membership site public to the search engines but not the rest of the buddypress community.

I've used the 'URL groups' section to make 'Menus - Forums' a positive rule for the free membership level but that doesn't seem to do it. Any suggestions?

    HI, I don't think, that is possible.

    The "free membership level" is either for registered users only - then google can not see it. Or it is for visitors, too - then "the rest of the buddypress community" can see it, too.

    As far as I can see, the only way to give google something to index in connection with the Membership plugin is to make the excerpts public (setting the "More Tag Default" - see Membership Plugin Docs 3.0.26 on page 17) ...

    Have fun!!

    Well you could ur URL Groups for this.

    Admin --> Membership --> URL Groups.


    Then you can restrict access to a group of URLS.

    But they won't be public to search engines, this protects the url from being accessed.

    Take care.

Thank NAME, for their help.
