Registered users w/ read_private_forums capability are unable to see them
We migrated from Simple:Press today to bbPress and so far all is well after a little cleanup, but now I am noticing that we are experiencing issues with permissions within the roles and capabilities. We have 2 tiers of registered users which are our members and our officers. With this we have 2 seperate categories and forums within them with members only being able to see/edit the members forum and officers being able to see/edit the members forum and the officers forum.
According to here on bbPress, this should be possible as our “members” role would have the “read_private_forums” capability assigned to it and our “officers” role would have that capability as well as the “read_hidden_forums” capability assigned to it. Unfortunately…this is not working properly, our “members” role is not able to view there forum, so in the mean time, I’ve enabled the “read_hidden_forums” capability per and that seems to have “solved” the issue, however now there is no way to restrict access to the officers forum (Which I’ve temporarily deleted until this can be resolved).
Any help/input/ideas would be appreciated. This should work from what I am reading, so not sure why.
