BuddyBoss Forums / bbPress + ActiveCampaign Integration

Memberium — 

One of Memberium’s many integrations with top WordPress plugins is our integration with BuddyBoss & bbPress. Right now, Memberium for ActiveCampaign does not have an integration with BuddyPress or the Social Groups features of BuddyBoss.

BuddyBoss includes all the features of bbPress along with many improvements. More on that shortly…

Memberium for ActiveCampaign’s integration enables you to protect forums with Memberium memberships and ActiveCampaign tags so only specific members have access – this allows you to create private VIP forums.


BuddyBoss vs. bbPress & BuddyPress

Simply put, BuddyBoss is a combination of bbPress and BuddyPress with a significant addition of features and tweaks that enhance the experience for your members and reduces the number of addon plugins you will need.

For example, BuddyBoss has added features that are missing in BuddyPress, even very basic things like support for media. In BuddyPress you can’t add photos, you have to add a third-party plugin for that. You can’t follow other users, you have to add a third-party plugin for that. These things are built into BuddyBoss and are compatible with Memberium.

For a detailed comparison between BuddyBoss/bbPress & BuddyPress, check out this page on BuddyBoss’s site after you read about Memberium’s integration below.

Memberium for ActiveCampaign integrates with the bbPress plugin or the BuddyBoss Platform plugin which includes all the same features as bbPress plus more.


How to Create Private Forums using BuddyBoss or bbPress

BuddyBoss includes a drop-in replacement for bbPress. You don’t need to install bbPress if you’re using BuddyBoss as they’ve built it in with enhancements. Our integration still works if you’re using bbPress and not BuddyBoss.

Memberium’s integration will let you protect your forums using our content protection metabox, so you can protect a forum with memberships, tags, and more.


BuddyBoss Integration

Under BuddyBoss > Forums > [Your Forum] you will see a screen like the one above. On the right-hand side, you’ll see our protection box.

I’ve protected the forum above with the “Gold” membership level. For someone to access or even view the forum, they’d need to have the Gold membership level.


bbPress Integration

If you’re using bbPress and not BuddyBoss, you can access your forums by going to Forums > All Forums > [Your Forum]

On the right-hand side, you’ll see our protection box.

I’ve protected the forum above with the “Gold” membership level. For someone to access or view the forum, they’d need to have the Gold membership level.


Creating Private Forums is a great way to increase member engagement and build a community your members will keep coming back to.

If you’re using other aspects of BuddyBoss or BuddyPress, members will have more opportunities to interact with other members on the site which could also improve member engagement on your site.
