Problem with user capabilities and AJAX
I’ve written my own custom plugin to have bbPress use my site’s authentication system (it’s not wordpress). It’s working beautifully (for the most part). I replace bb_is_user_logged_in and bb_current_user (and the latter sets bb_set_current_user).
The problem is this: AJAX calls to add a new tag, to remove an existing tag (your own or as admin), or to delete a post all fail with a “you don’t have permission to do that”. I see that other plugins have had that problem too. However, if I submit the request using the old school (non-AJAX) url, it works just fine.
So I’m guessing there’s something unique in the AJAX calls and that code seems dense to me. Can anyone suggest some places to check first?
