I created a separate page for topic creation and just ran the same PHP call (`echo do_shortcode(‘[bbp-topic-form]‘);`), and it works… So for some reason that call doesn’t behave properly in my `bbpress.php`, but does just fine in a custom template.
I’m having the same issue. I used the [bbp-topic-form] shortcode in my `bbpress.php` template file. If I enter with my super-admin account I can see the form and create topics. But if I enter under the default “Participant” role, it gives me the message “You cannot create new topics.” However, if I go to a specific forum, the topic form is displayed underneath, so it must be a shortcode problem.
Right now I’m using `echo do_shortcode(“[bbp-topic-form]“);` to include the form in my template file. Is there a better way to do this?
