How to enable post / post types unrestricted for public even though category integrated group

Hello ,

I have used groups and groups restrict categories plugins together, but I see there is a problem on my side after started to use groups restriction on categories. My flow is that after any unregistered user who wants to be register, should select first the group on registration window integrating with woocommerce product package, so when this process finished, this listing item is not restricted publicly, just restricted to product to be purchased.
But if I use the restriction on categories or tags, any category restricted by group, also restricts the post listing view publicly.
My aim is just restriction on category groups, that gets filtered by the user groups when submitting a form.
How could open my post or post types publicly even though the groups category was selected ?
I have also woocommerce membership and subscription additionally
thank you

    Hello George,
    You are not wrong, I have listing posts connected with tag / category assigned to groups so that this this listing posts is not being displayed when seaching included facetwp process, otherwise when I removed the groups assigned to tag, they can be displayed as is.
    I have wp job manager listing submitting form, supported by listable theme dev list. According to my goal here, any registered user, is to assign the groups at first and then when the user wants to purchase a paid listing package connected with listing subscriptional product, ony packages are visible previously assigned by the groups for pruchasing.This flowing system I have told, had been run flawlessly until the groups category sey up.
    The form used by registered user for submitting listing, has separated custom fields depends on groups assigned to the user when registering or later.I can choose which field is on or off for the form to the woocommerce package products.through the wp job manager field plugin.
    Restriction on groups, enabled my categories and tags filter in submission form to the user login, that sounds good, but restricted the post listings connected those category and tag assigned by groups.
    thats all
    my web site is on maintenance mode under consruction, if you want I can send you login credential then
    thank you

    Hi Baris,

    Please correct me if i’m wrong, but you are trying to restrict the category and in the same time, open to public the contents of this category? If you restrict the category and not posts under that category then there is no restriction, unless you are trying to accomplish something different i’m not aware of.
    Also, what do you mean by

    …,that gets filtered by the user groups when submitting a form.

    Do you use any forms that when submitted by a user, the user gets added to a group?

    Can you also provide a link to your site?
