Hello, we can not help unless you give us admin access (create a temporary account with admin access).
You can not post that as it is unsafe for you. You need to register so that you can PM the information to an admin:

Thank you.

Your account has now been given permissions to PM This message was hidden, please register or login to see message!.

Please be patient, our responsibility is to our paid support members first. In the meantime, send us login details to your site with a user account with administrative permissions.

If we find your WP-UM settings all correct, we will need FTP access. We will have to see if it comes to it.

We thank you for your patience.

Hi PMStudio1,

Your issue is solved and the site is now working correctly as it should.
All you do from this point on is to let users create posts. If a post is public, it should be found in /wpum/blog. If it's private, it will be invisible.

The search issue is also resolved, if a "non-logged in" user uses the search feature, he will only find public posts. If he knows the url address of a private post, he will get a 404 Not Found page in return.

Ans, if he know the url address of a private page, he should be redirected to your login page. All you have to do now is transfer the DB to your new site.

Best of luck!

Hi,

Thank you for solving the issue.

It seems that we need to set the post/page "visibility" to "private" to keep it out of the search results of not-logged-in users, even when content is protected by UM widget settings. Additionally the general UM access setting needs to be "Site accessible to everyone".

This requires that registered users who want to publish a private post, must :
* in Publish widget : set visibility to "private"
* in UM widget :
- Apply custom access settings : set to "YES"
- Content Availability : set to "Content accessible to Logged In Users"
- Select the member roles that can see this content : check the appropriate roles
- Redirect URL : set to "/login"

It's obvious that not all authors will pay attention to these settings, resulting in private posts being accessible for public !

The situation is solved now but I hope there will be an easier solution in the future where an admin can preset all these settings so that an author does not need to worry about these "technicalities".

PS : the redirect to "/login" doesn't work when going directly to a private post or page. The visitor just gets the 404 with a search box.
