Hide specific posts/pages/cpts from guest users in WordPress

Hide pages/posts/custom post types from guest users in WordPress. The setting can be done on per page/post basis.
If you wanted to hide just a couple pages from guest users, but want it to be available for members, you can use this plugin.

  1. Download this plugin.
  2. Upload and install it via wp-admin plugin installer. Activate the plugin.
  3. A checkbox will appear on edit page screen now:
    Restrict access custom field
    If you check the checkbox, this page will not be viewable unless user is logged in. Guest users will be redirected to login page when they try to view this page.
  4. By default, this checkbox only appears for ‘pages’ and not for ‘blog posts’ or any other custom post types that your website might have. It is however very easy to add it for other post types as well. For example, if you want it for custom post type called ‘course’, you can put the following code in your theme’s functions.php file:
    add_filter( 'restrict_access_post_types', 'myprefix_restrict_access_post_types' );
    function myprefix_restrict_access_post_types( $post_types ){
    	$post_types[] = 'course';
    	return $post_types;
    }

WordPress multisite forgot password url issue

Forgot password/Lost password link in login form on subsite in a WordPress multisite setup has an issue. The link points to main site and not to the subsite where user is actually trying to login.
E.g:
If the visitor is at http://site1.example.com/wp-login.php, forgot password link here will point to http://example.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword. This might not be desired in some situations.

Additionally, the email sent for password reset action, also has login links to main site in network and not the subsite where user was actually trying to login.

Code below fixes these 2 issues.

bbPress loading more topics with ajax

Created a plugin which allows you to add one ‘load more’ button on your bbPress topics archive. And obviously, that button click loads more topics and appends it at the end of the topics list.

The plugin can be downloaded from here.

You can use it alongside the pagination. The plugin internally loads the same template files to display new topics, so it integrates with your existing theme without any extra effort.

Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin. You need to add 2-3 lines of code in your template file. The file that we will be editing is loop-topics.php. If you’ve not done already, create a folder inside your active theme, and name it as ‘bbpress’, then open the bbPress plugin folder, copy the file templates/default/bbpress/loop-topics.php and paste it inside the new folder that you created in your theme.
Open the file loop-topics.php and look for

<li class="bbp-body" >

An unaltered file will have the following code in that region

<li>

	<?php while ( bbp_topics() ) : bbp_the_topic(); ?>

		<?php bbp_get_template_part( 'loop', 'single-topic' ); ?>

	<?php endwhile; ?>

</li>

We need to add the code for the ‘load-more’ button there. The code that we need to add is:

<?php if( function_exists( 'bbpresslmt_loadmore_button' ) ): ?>
	<?php bbpresslmt_loadmore_button(); ?>
<?php endif; ?>

So after adding this code, our updated file should contain:

<li>

	<?php while ( bbp_topics() ) : bbp_the_topic(); ?>

		<?php bbp_get_template_part( 'loop', 'single-topic' ); ?>

	<?php endwhile; ?>

	<?php if( function_exists( 'bbpresslmt_loadmore_button' ) ): ?>
		<?php bbpresslmt_loadmore_button(); ?>
	<?php endif; ?>

</li>

That’s all we need to do. If you are viewing topics inside any forum, then topics from inside that forum is loaded. If you are viewing all topics list, all topics are loaded. So no configuration required on that part.

Drop in your comments for any issues with the plugin or any other feedback.
