Yes I get that, and I see my settings are configured to automatically now give this status to new additions, and supposedly the ability to post, but ‘half’ of those that already have the status cannot.
It’s a real shame that there are no codes written into the error messages.
I guess my two questions are (in the context of my above post)
- When did all my historically inactive users get all their statuses changed to participants, it could only be with a recent BBpress plugin update?
- Is there another encoded condition that has to be satisfied aside from “if user = Participant then validate post or reply?”.
I know an invalid or heavy file may stop posting, but I have increased the values of the attachments so this is out. Failed posters have however not always been uploading anything more than their text.
Anyway I should stop speculating and see when the successful and failed posters were entered into the system.
Hello I have been looking at this for a number of days.
I reactivated plugins one by one and then a couple of people successfully posted, then two or three more couldn’t post then one did.
My bizarre theory is that it has something to do with a bbpress update quite a while ago. I already had Buddypress for two or three years with every member of my community manually given a basic S1 level when I created their account (so additional info was password-protected). When I added the recommended bbPress to develop a forum, I noted that only a number of my more active members got the status “Participants”, the numbers seem to reflect a few active users out of my total pool of users. It wasn’t automatic that everyone was assigned the Participant status, especially if they had never logged in. I assumed that it came from them reading forum/bbPress generated pages.
Since the beginning of the year, this has changed; everybody but the three Admins have been marked as a participants – 30% of these have never even logged in to my Buddypress environment, have never even reacted to the initial password email. The term ‘participant’ in a sense has become meaningless to me as an admin, because it tells me nothing any more.
I have to investigate there’s an ‘arrival date’ relationship with those who have posted and those who can’t.
