Here are some pictures to better explain what is happening;
*Sorry everything looks so bad, had child theme disabled while testing.*
Viewing a topic as a user with administrator via wordpress – works as intended.
Viewing a topic as a user marked as subscriber via wordpress and keymaster via bbpress. – topic content does not show.
Again, thank-you so much!
I checked the user capabilities using the plugin you linked. The user has read_private_replies.
I also did some further testing and it seems that only users marked as administrator in wordpress can view private topic content. Users marked as Keymaster are unable to view private topic content.
Should this patch allow anyone who has the read_private_replies cap to see topic content? or just the Admin / keymaster?
I applied the code and it fixed it for admin/keymasters but not for a custom role with read_private_replies cap.
This is great to hear! Thanks 😀
Is there anyway to download the development version? Or edit files to fix this manually until the update is public?
These are the steps I took on my local test area to recreate the problem;
– latest version of both WP and BBpress
– both are fresh installs
– using twentyfourteen theme
– no child themes
1. Create a public category
2. Create a public forum
3. Make a topic on participant user
4. Mark the topic as private on keymaster account – via wordpress visibility
5. Try to read topic on keymaster account. It will show up in the topic loop, but when you click on the specific topic to read it the topic content will not show.
6. Try and read the topic on the participant (author) account and everything shows fine.
Have been trying to figure this out on my own for 2 days now. Still can’t get it to work 🙁
Any further suggestions are welcome.
This is the exact problem I’m having;
As you can see, admin can no longer see the topic text when set to private.
I’ve tried everything you said. Deactivated everything but bbpress, switched to twentytwelve and did it all again on my localhost test area.
Any other ideas on what may be causing this? Or any other way of making private topics inside a public forum?
I’ve been looking through code and settings for a few hours now.
I actually found that I can manually set topics to private by editing their visibility in the dashboard. This provides the exact functionality I need, other than it being manual. Is there anyway to let users set their topics as private when they publish them? Or automatically set topics in a certain forum to private?
I would like users to be able to create a topic inside the applications forum, once the topic is published only the user who made it and admins can view it.
After some more searching I’ve found;
This is essentially what I would like but to do, but would have it auto enabled inside the applications forum.
