Re: “Pick a section” not showing Forums – can’t add new topic from front page.

Hi, I’m having the same problem. I’m running bbPress 0.8.3 with allow-images, fix bbPress, notification, and private-forums plugins. Except for the problem (below), everything is running fine.

Basically, if a regular member clicks “ADD NEW” link on the front page of the forum, their Pick a Section dropdown list is blank, and if they go ahead and submit the new post form, they get an error that the forum topic is closed.

If same user clicks on a forum and posts from there – works fine. If an adminstrator clicks from front page, it works fine. If I deactivate the private-forums plugin, it works fine.

Can anyone suggest a way to fix this? Besides deactivating private forums,that is. ;)
