Hi There, I want the forum to be an area where admin and the private wishlist members can each add comments and have a discussion without it being viable to other users. Please advise. 


Thanks, Sandra

Hey Sandra,

You can make Simple Press private through permissions, have you taken a look at User Access and Permissions?

You could set it up in a similar way to how we have it here - i.e guests don't have access to the support forum.

Ok, I think I have set up the forum on a page that will be a private membership area for a client. Now how do I set it up so users will have access without having to log in to simple press again after they have already logged in to the private wishlist membership area? 


Thanks, Sandra

There is no such thing as a log-in for Simple:Press. Simple:Press is a WordPress plugin and it is into WordPress - ie., your website - that users log into.
