Allowing Users to Create Forums

    @mattpont

    The client I’m working for would like logged in members to be able to create forums.

    I’ve added the [bbp-forum-form] shortcode to the archive-forums.php template, and given the logged in user role the following permissions:
    – edit_forums
    – publish_forums
    – delete_forums

    However, when I login as a user in the above role, I get the “You cannot create new forums” message.

    Any ideas what is happening here please?

    hmm… those capabilities should allow this to happen.

    I’d suspect that these are not being added – how are you doing this?

    I needed the gate_keep permission too.

    Thanks for replying.
