    Quick suggestion for a plugin. Something that would enable site admins to make their sites accessible to logged-in users only. I've been using Ultimate Member a lot lately which allows admins to:

    Declare the site as private with the exception of selected pages
    Select who can see pages, posts, and menu links – everyone, visitors, or members – and by which role
    Set logged-in users to see a different home page to visitors

    Search the Buddypress forums and this has been requested for +5 years with no usable response. Plugins like S2 Member and MemberPress are only applicable if your selling membership levels/content. The only plugin I've used that does this well is Ultimate Member but that's a direct competitor to Buddypress and can't be integrated on the same site.

    Thanks,
    Paul.

    @style960 does BuddyPress Members Only offer what your looking for? https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-members-only/

    @ryanmaler Thanks for the reply. I solved my problems with this plugin (keeps out visitors and search engines) – https://wordpress.org/plugins/jonradio-private-site/ along with adding this to functions.php:

    if( is_user_logged_in() ) {
        $page = get_page_by_title( 'Dashboard');
        update_option( 'page_on_front', $page->ID );
        update_option( 'show_on_front', 'page' );
    }
    else {
        $page = get_page_by_title( 'Home' );
        update_option( 'page_on_front', $page->ID );
        update_option( 'show_on_front', 'page' );
    }

    Visitors see the homepage, then once logged-in ‘Dashboard' becomes the homepage.

    @style960 interesting. Seems solid. Thanks for tossing the function in. May come in handy for me.

    Thank you @style960! I am planning on doing the same thing and just bought the Boss. theme.
    If you don't mind me asking, would you personally recommend staying with it, or switching to a different theme provider with Ultimate Member/My Private Site?

    @localp If you choose to use Ultimate Member you wouldn't need plugins like My Private Site, those settings can all be made within the UM plugin. However if you want to use Ultimate Member with Boss, you will have some custom styling to do, particularly for the slide panels on mobile layout.

    It really depends whether or not you wish to use BuddyPress.
