Hello,

I use a membership plugin Wp-emember and I have two levels of subscription: Free and Premium. 

Is it possible to limit access to parts of a forum for Free members?

Thanks!

Hey Mike,

Yes you can - using permissions and usergroups. Take a look first at these Codex articles -

Permissions

Usergroups

User access and permissions

There is a wealth of information in the SP Codex, just use the search box on the right hand side, and of course - do ask if you need any specific help!

Hope that's is useful.

Having read all that, I still don't get it, sorry!

If someone subscribes, the WP role is always set to 'subscriber'

The membership plugin assigns a membership level. 

How does simplepress take the membership level info and assign the correct forum permissions?

No problem, just as an example:

Somebody subscribes and they are given the WP role of subscriber

Go to Forum > Usergroups > Map Users, and you can map these WP roles to SP usergroups.

You can then go to Forum > Forums > Manage Groups and Forums, and assign the desired usergroup and permission set corresponding to that group.

I think that's everything..

I only see one WP role: 'subscriber'. I know there are others 'admin', etc, but I don't want to my subscribers to write posts etc. 

Am I misunderstanding how it all works?

Well to be honest I am not sure how WP-emember works or if it conforms to the WP API.

You may need to create more WP roles, if all you have is subscriber - you might need another plugin to do this.

Take a look at this article in the codex, regarding setting SP up with Wishlist, another membership plugin - but the same principal.
