[Solved] Social Login to comment but not to write in forum. Need advice
I have WPForo and WPDiscuz installed, all it's ok.
Now I would like to use the social login feature to allow users to login and comment posts but not write in forum, where only my site's users have to be allowed to.
If I didn't misunderstand, when a social user log-in with its social account, the plugin creates a new user in my site, well, I don't want that this "external user" can write in forum too, but only limited to comment posts in WPDiscuz.
I thought to create another level of default user, let's say "Guest user" that can interact only with comments, while the normal "registered users" can be assigned to WPForo as default users, am I right?
Or, is there another way to do it?
Thanks in advance
I may suggest you use the WordPress Multisite for this. You'll just need to install the wpForo on some subdomain of your website. In this case, you'll have separate users on your forum and website.
Thanks for advice Asti, but to install WPMS only to have another level of users maybe is a too heavy operation.
In any case, I'll think on it, many thanks.
Any other ideas?
