Users cannot edit their own topics

    Hi

    I just installed bbpress on our wordpress site, but the users cannot edit their own topics (no edit menu in the bar)
    I checked then the permissions with the plugin “User Role Editor” but I saw nothing weird in it.
    We tried to install another WordPress/bbpress on another machine: same issue !

    Thanks for your help !!

    I just tried the “Members” plugin. The forum_participant and contributor roles have the “edit_topics” item enabled. But they still just can’t edit…

    Same here. My subscribers cannot edit their own posts. Where do one start looking? Is it bbpress-specific och WP?

    Unfortunately I must get a functionnal forum in the few next hours/days.
    So if I get no answer here, I’ll have to install another forum type (what I would regret because I like bbpress)

    Please help !

    I am also having this problem. User Role Editor shows me that they do have permission to Edit Topics and Replies.

    Problem Solved: I originally had set up the forums so that after 25 minutes the post would be locked. I set it to a much higher number (99999) and subscribers can now edit their posts.

    Must be something to do with how BBPress handles the calculation of the time limit.
