I hope this message finds you guys well. I'm getting up to speed on bP but looking for a bit of a push in my next direction.
I have plugins all set up, here's what I'm looking to do (I'm using a non-bp theme, and have already installed the compatibility pack).
Looking to have a home page to the site, with some information and then a Log In area for people to register to become a member. Just can't figure out how to do that. I used a widget for Login Area, but it doesn't give me the options for "login" where someone can do the actual process of logging in.
Then...I'd like most of my pages to only be accessible to "members".
Can this be done? I assume so...any direction you can point me to that would be great. If you need any more information, please let me know.
Do I need to set anything up on my server? I installed the forums plugin, and it said that I am all set.
What are Shortcodes, and what are they used for? Are they related?
Thanks...I appreciate any time someone can give,
