Remove "Edit this" link at top of topics

    Hey! First time around here, and I’m a total newbie to bbpress. Glad you see you all!

    I have a slight problem with my bbpress installation. Users from the forums see an “Edit this” link at the top of the topic and when they use it they can edit the topic in the WordPress post editor.

    Is there a way to remove that link?

    Thanks!

    Or, if it is not possible, I’d like to know if there is a way for users to be re-directed to the “Edit” option from bbpress instead of going to the WordPress text editor.

    Forgot to put in the details: I’m running WordPress 3.4 and bbpress 2.2.3

    You can remove this inside your template.

    Do all users see this, or is it just your admin account that can see it? Just wondering as the wordpress edit page is to edit the description of the forum, not replies or topics from users.

    Any participant can see the “Edit this” link on the topics they have started. What worries me is that they also have the ability to make sticky and global posts.

    Check what the default role people are being assigned inside Settings > Forums > Default User Role

    Just to make sure they aren’t being registered as moderators or anything.

    I double checked and they are registered as participants by default.

    Hmm, not sure, would be useful to see a link, but then of course everyone would have your link to edit your topics/forums.

    You should double-check capabilities then. From the wp-admin sidebar, go to Users->User Role Editor. Then select the Participant role and see what capabilities that role has.

    I already tried using User Role Editor to modify capabilities, but everytime I save the changes they reset.

    Here’s the capabilities for participants that are enabled by default (and that I can’t modify):

    The actual problem that I have is that participants can set a topic’s attribute using the WordPress Administration Screen. Is there a way to remove this feature from participants?

    I tried removing the screen options for participants using Adminimize. While it removed the screen options menu, I can’t still remove the Topic attributes feature from participants. Here’s a screenshot I took with a test account (website is in spanish):
