Actually I see it is only super-admins that can edit their profile via the forums/user/username link from the frontend. I am using the default twenty ten bbpress theme. I note that if I embed the bbp-your-profile form then I see the form okay but on post it submits to the edit page, which updates but quickly then redirects back to the user page. This way my user won’t see any error messages.
Does anyone know where I can override the super-admin restriction which prevents non super-admin users from going to the profile edit page (forums/user/username/edit)?
