How do my users create a topic?

    I just installed WordPress the latest version on WordPress with plugins BuddyPress and bbpress.

    I created a dummy user under the role “Participant” but when I login to it and go to the forums I see no “Create New Topic” button anywhere.

    Also I already created a category forum.

    I want my users to be able to make their own topics in my categories that I make.

    create new is at the bottom of a forum page – not always that obvious

    I created a page titled “add new topic” with the content of

    [bbp-topic-form]
    

    – the shortcode for creating a topic.

    I then use a text widget in the sidebar with the content of

    <a href="/add-new-topic/">Create a new topic</a>
    
    

    the “/add-new-topic/” is the permalink to the page.

    Thanks.

    If you could help with one more thing.

    I made my category with no topics inside it. But when I use the “Create a new topic” button it doesn’t let me post a topic in that category, it’s grayed out.

    Never mind found out how to do it.

    You have to create a forum then make a category inside of your forum you created.

    Again thanks for the help.

    The form only displays when you’re logged in, so we can’t see what your issue is. Can you post a picture via say phtotbucket, and detail what you feel is wrong
