New install: Questions about Roles, Admin bar, shortcodes
I’m just getting a new site up and running and I have some setup questions.
 I’ve created a page, called it ‘Register’, and put the shortcode [bbp-register] in it. When people visit the page, they can fill out their username and email address and click ‘register’, but after submitting the form there is no confirmation back to the user that anything actually happened. They simply see the form again. Is this the expected behavior?
 When a user is logged in, by default their account allows the ‘Toolbar’ when viewing the site. This is handy so they can edit their profile, logout, etc…. but there are also links to create a new topic or a new reply. This takes them to the wp-admin section of the site which feels strange. Is there a way to force people to only create new topics and replies from the “front-end” of the site?
 Along similar lines, people can create a ‘New Reply’ from this toolbar without even viewing a thread. What exactly are they creating a reply to?
 Right now all of the forums are marked as ‘Closed’. When viewing the site from the homepage everything looks good and users cannot create topics, replies, etc. However if they use the toolbar to go into the wp-admin section they can create new topics there. Is this a bug? Since all forums are ‘Closed’ the topic doesn’t get assigned a forum and doesn’t appear on the main site, but it is still there with “(No Forum)” assigned.
