    I have anonymous posting ticked but the forums still say ‘You must be logged in to create new topics.’ Help please!

    It could be a theme or plugin issue

    Plugins

    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    Themes

    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentyfifteen, and see if this fixes.

    Then come back

    Thanks for your help. I’ve identified the problem but not the solution.

    I have a page with my topics on and the slug is ‘discussion.’ This is the page where you cannot create a topic anonymously.
    I have also set the Forum Root slug to ‘discussion’so that my breadcrumbs read Home > Discussion > [Topic Title].

    If I change the Forum Root slug to something else, ‘forums’ for example, then suddenly on the discussion page you are able to create a topic anonymously, and everything works fine. However, this ruins my breadcrumbs.

    Any thoughts as to why this happens? Thank you!

    I have a page with my topics on and the slug is ‘discussion.

    are you using a shortcode on this page?

    Yes! To display the topics. Is that wrong?

    It’s like this:

    [bbp-topic-index]
    [bbp-topic-form]

    the slugs must match the contents of any page you set to the same slug.

    so the forum root slug should match a page that has [bbp-forum-index]

    so the topics slug should match you page with topics in it

    Right! Thank you so much.

    Okay so that fixes the problem however I still have the breadcrumbs issue.

    On my topics page called ‘Discussion’, when you click a topic the breadcrumbs read ‘Home > Forums > [Topic Title]

    I haven’t created a ‘forums’ page, I only have the one forum. I’d like the breadcrumbs to read ‘Home > Discussion > [Topic Title] so that users can click ‘discussion’ and return to the main topics page.

    Is this possible?

    yes, install my style pack plugin

    bbp style pack

    once activated go to

    dashboard>settings>bbp style pack>breadcrumbs

    and you can change what the root says and where it goes
