This additional plugin is necessary if you want to run member-only forums with bbPress and Groups. As the topics and replies in bbPress are custom post types, it is not sufficient to protect a forum using Groups.
The topics and replies in a protected forum would still be accessible unless they are also protected.
This plugin extends the access restrictions on a forum to its related topics.
This also applies to replies posted on topics: replies posted on a topic will be accessible to users who can access the topic and the forum only.
If additional access restrictions are set on a topic, its replies are protected by both the forum’s and the topic’s access restrictions.

How does this work?
Once a forum is protected by Groups, its related topics and replies are also protected automatically.
You don’t need to set any additional access restrictions on those replies or topics.
You can set additional access restrictions on topics and replies if desired.
If you set an additional access restriction on a topic, the related replies will also be protected based on that.
