    I want to get false this two option for participant:

    // Forum caps
    ‘read_private_forums’ => true,

    // Topic tag caps
    ‘assign_topic_tags’ => true,

    In this moment i have update file capabilities.php but when bbpress have upgrade to new version i sure lost this modify…

    P.s. Why this options aren’t present in administration forum panel?

    I have the similar issue.
    How I can add:

    // Forum caps
    'read_hidden_forums'    => true,

    Any idea?



    i think they should try to include some extra settings for forum roles. it saves time editing the php file.

    I have a community part of my forum which is open & visible and a clan part that is private & hidden, i hade to modify the capabillities.php file and add my own role Clan Member and give correct rules.

    I tested it on an account and it worked , standard users can only see community forum but if i change a person role to clan member they can see all forums and post etc…
