  • I’ve looked through the (two) plugins that allows us to restrict forums, and sadly, it seems your guesses are correct. The first one which allows you to allow users in to a forum based on member names is hardly compatible with the latest version of bbPress (and seems dead). I almost got it working right, except for the fact that it messed up my forum hierarchy, and some other bugs, which meant that threads couldn’t be posted to a certain forum without being in that forum, which was enough for me to rule it out.

    The other option, private forum as you tried out yourself, doesn’t allow us to do anything but restrict it to either members, mods or admins, which is the most viable solution to me at this point. It does mean however that I will need to give all my members who need access to the restricted forum moderator capabilities. Hardly ideal, but I’ll have to go with it for now.

    I’ll be looking at it this weekend though, and hopefully I can find a sort of solution to it. Right now I’m thinking of finding a way to strip moderators of actual moderating powers, but I really don’t know. Adding another usergroup (pretty simple) should work too, but it has to be reflected in the plugin as well, but I don’t have the coding skills (I don’t have any coding skills) to do that.

    Hopefully a gifted plugin developer will step in and solve this for us :)

    Well, this is just plain weird. Still haven’t been able to fix it for my original WP admin account (the dummy one holds up however), but I experienced something even weirder today.

    Was logged in, adding some tags to a thread, and whoops, after being able to add one just fine, it gave me the “No permission” message when I tried to add a second.

    Go figure.

    Hope someone is able to work out a fix for this. Haven’t added any code to the config.php file.

    Just installed bbPress, and experiencing the exact same problem. Normal installation of WP 2.3 (latest version). No clue what might be wrong either.

    Making another user KeyMaster works however. So as a workaround I’ve registered a “dummy” to use for this only. Awesome.

    Edit: It turns out my “normal” account doesn’t have permission to edit tags either.
