Users can't edit their own post

    Hi everyone.
    First, my system:
    wordpress 3.5.1.
    buddypress 1.7.1 (with bbpress 2.3.2 integrated).

    I’ve changed my site from buddypress group forums to bbpress 2.3.1. The transition went fine, but now I have this problem:

    Users can’t edit their own messages.
    I have also set option “Disallow editing after” to 15 minutes, but still users can’t edit their own posts.

    Then, I have some difficulties to understand how forum visibility settings of bbpress (public, private, hidden) correlates to group visibility settings (public, private, hidden). If I set a group as hidden and than bbpress settings to “private” or “public”, new topics of groups forum appears in “latest topics”. Users that are not members of group that try to enter the forum get 404 error, but they still can read the topic, and this is not a good thing. If a users sets his group as hidden I think he don’t want to see it visible in latest topics, don’t you? :)

    Solved by myself.
    I have set the editing time in settings->forum to 300 (before it was 15). Now it works. :mrgreen:

    I’ve looked everywhere, tried different editing times, but I can’t edit posts from the forum interface, only from the admin interface.

    Is there anyone here who actively monitors the troubleshooting for users with issues? I’m not seeing any decent care from bbpress.org folks.

    Hi, edit link is not showed, but you, if you want can edit your messages…Time is only to remove edit button, but modify your post is possible if you know the total url..

    For example, in this forum after 300 sec edit button go away but url for edit my post is: http://bbpress.org/forums/reply/reply-to-users-cant-edit-their-own-post-3/edit/

    And your post is: http://bbpress.org/forums/reply/reply-to-users-cant-edit-their-own-post-2/edit/

    Click on your post link and modify your content… Is possible only if you are author of the post…

    Thanks for the reply.

    I put the edit time to 30,000 minutes and 300,000 seconds. Then I entered a reply to my test post, clicked send, my reply posted. Then I clicked on the “edit” button. But instead of giving me my reply in edit form, I’m redirected to a “404” error.
