BBpress plugin for WordPress – Private Forums and BBpress/WordPress User Roles
I have the BBpress WordPress Plugin version installed on my WordPress site, and have found that from installation defaults, the lowest ranking user-role that can view the private forums is ‘Moderator’. The trouble with this, is that Moderators can edit other people’s posts, and I do not want all Users that can read and post in the private forums to be able to edit each other’s posts! Is there an easy way to change this? Ideally I’d want WordPress ‘Contributor’-level users and above to be able to view the private forums. I’d also like WordPress ‘Subscriber’-level users to be able to read the public forums but not post to them, but his is not as important, so no real problem if it cannot be done.
Sorry if this has been asked many times before, but I’ve read a bit about user-maps etc, but the discussions tend to be quite old and talking about the BBpress standalone, not the BBpress WordPress Plugin, so I am not sure if it works for the BBpress WordPress Plugin version(?). Just so you know, I am no kind of Coder – just an Animator – so am struggling with terminology etc. here.
I hope someone can help!
