Yeah, JJJ you’re right: /login and /wp-login.php are the same. I tried a completely different computer, which I had never logged into before, and the anonymity issues were there with both login methods. The only thing I haven’t tried is a different account, but it looks like Lynq is having the issue too, so I’m not the only one. I haven’t really noticed that cookies or cache have anything to do with it. I have never had issues on wordpress.org or buddypress.org. I have spent at least a couple hours trying to find a way to login to bbpress.org consistently without issues, but I haven’t found one yet. At this point I’m pretty sure there is some bug somewhere… I just don’t know what else it could be. Other people could be having the issue, but they might not be able to post! I almost gave up myself.
Wow, I just found the solution for myself. Cookies didn’t matter… I cleared them many times and used different browsers too.
I noticed that everytime I logged in, it would redirect me to the login screen, showing me the fields, even though I had successfully logged in. I have been consistently anonymous on bbpress.org/forums and a couple other forum pages, plus many topic pages, every time I’ve logged in this way.
I tried bbpress.org/wp-login.php instead, and that’s working perfectly. No anonymity issues anymore! So I guess there is an issue on the custom login page at bbpress.org/login
@pocome, remapping will fix every other user’s role, but you can’t change your own. You need to login to another admin user to change yours. It’s annoying, but you only have to do it once.In reply to: Appearing as Anonymous even when logged in
Wow, this is crazy, I am having the same problem on a good deal of the topics on here. I was not able to reply to this thread and started creating another, but in trying to find a pattern I clicked on this and many other topics. Randomly, after many times, I clicked on this and I’m not anonymous now! I think this is temporary though, so I’m replying while I still can.
I have no idea why, but I did notice that in most forums, it was only the two sticky topics and the most recent topic that had the issue. Actually one of the sticky topics randomly started working, but then I clicked around to other topics and now both aren’t working again. Most of the topics under 2 days old in “Installation” aren’t working.
The weirdest thing is that there doesn’t appear to be consistency. Maybe it has to do with other users and their activity at a particular time?
I don’t think the problem has to do with other plugins. It has to do with bbPress having made roles for the forums a separate thing. Look at your users page… on the right there is a “Forum Role” column. If it’s blank then that’s where your issue is. It needs to have “Keymaster”, “Moderator”, “Participant”, etc.
For a quick fix, in Tools > Forums, you can select the checkbox for “Remap existing users to default forum roles”. If you have a lot of moderators/users, be careful. For me, it assigned all the admins to Keymaster, the moderators (bbPress used to have the role “Moderator” alongside the other WP roles) to Moderator, and everyone else to Participant.
Get your users assigned to forum roles and the admin menus will show up for them (and you!). Only an admin can change a forum role, but they cannot change their own.
