WooCommerce Memberships: bbPress integration
This would add the ability to restrict forums, topics, and replies from bbPress to members with WooCommerce memberships. This could also have advanced features, such as the ability to make profiles public / restricted.
bbPress users, what's important to restrict? How would you like to protect forums to members?
The admin should be able to decide that certain level members join automatically to bb groups, which is suitable for them. It is not always that the members want to discuss with other members who bought same memberships. Often it can be the opposite. For example buyers want to discuss with sellers and not with other buyers

I agree with Fidel Torres' idea:
"Give private forums for each member ship group. Allow nonmembers to access only public forums."
I would also add "or all private forums" in addition to just private forum access for their specific membership. For instance, VIP memberships get access to all private forums, etc.
I would like to:
(1) Associate one ore more forum to one membership and grant access to the forum to active members of the memberships only
(2) Use also the "Hide only content" protect mode

I'd like to see this. I just started using memberships and subscriptions and I'm trying to create a members only forum.
I would also love to see a better integration into bbpress or BuddyPress. This is a must-have for us.
Hereditary restriction would be great. Option to see subject/topics but not the content of the topics and replies would also be great for SEO.

Would love a better integration !

Anyone have bbpress and woocommerce memberships working together with user restrictions? I find that my admin can view/comment/post all topics, but users with "participate" permissions cannot view any topic content. They can respond/post however but no content ever displays. Please reply if there is a work for this! Forum content must be hidden for anyone without the permission to view.

I would like to be able to drip available subforums to members based on time.

I'd really like to find a way to assign a customer to a conversation based upon their purchase.
Essentially, Customer A purchases a ticket to Event X, and gains access to the Event X forum to discuss getting together with other attendees. Even better if Event X could be divided into subgroups (10AM show, Noon Show, 2PM Show).
Any improved compatibility would be appreciated! A single area to sign in to a website, where a user can manage their purchases of products and their membership subscriptions, plus update their forum details. It would make for a simple user experience! :)

I would like to have my clients use one username and password to access my woocommerce store plugin, my woocommerce membership plugin, and my woocommerce forum plugin.
Thus I would love it if you could add features to the bbPress plugin and make those features match the features that are available with the woocommerce membership plugin.
I hope I am making sense, since I have not had either a store, a membership area, or a forum. I just know I want my forum plugin to match the capabilities of the membership plugin. And I want my clients to be able to login to all three with only one username and password.
I really want that membership gives auto access to a forum but particularly one that is only viewable by members not just only witable by members. We are currently using bbP Private Groups to make a forum private.. this seems very clumsy
