cannot edit, delete or close a topic

    Hello,

    I am using BBpress to create course forums as part of a learning management system build with the WPLMS theme. I could set up a forum easily and post in it, but now I am facing an issue: users cannot edit, delete or close a topic. Find a screenshot here. None of the links in the highlighted area does work.

    I have enabled “Allow users to edit their content for … minutes” and set it to 10000″ (roughly 7 days). I have full admin rights and still cannot edit my own post.

    Thanks for your support!

    Hello Robin,

    I created an open and public testforum for you:

    Testforum

    Can I somehow send you login credentials for a test user in a private message? I have opened the forum for guests without accounts, but apparently they cannot edit their posts anyway.

    Thanks for your support!

    ok, you say you have admin rights, but what forum role do you have ?

    Participants are not by default allowed to delete or close.

    Your theme (or another plugin) is only letting you see any admin links when you focus on the content. This is I am pretty sure preventing you clicking the link to edit.

    yes your theme has a style sheet

    wplms/assets/css/bbpress.min.css

    which contains

    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums li.bbp-body .reply .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums li.bbp-body div.hentry .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-replies li.bbp-body .reply .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-replies li.bbp-body div.hentry .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-topics li.bbp-body .reply .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-topics li.bbp-body div.hentry .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links {
     position:absolute;
     bottom:15px;
     right:0
    }

    which moves the links, and makes them unclickable

    if you change
    bottom:15px;

    to

    bottom:1px ;

    it works

    @robin-w

    so put this in the custom css are of your theme

    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums li.bbp-body .reply .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-forums li.bbp-body div.hentry .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-replies li.bbp-body .reply .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-replies li.bbp-body div.hentry .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-topics li.bbp-body .reply .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links,
    #bbpress-forums ul.bbp-topics li.bbp-body div.hentry .bbp-reply-header .bbp-admin-links {
    bottom:1px !important;
    }

    then use this to allow participants to close or delete topics and delete replies

    bbp style pack

    once activated go to

    dashboard>settings>bbp style pack>Topic/Reply Display

    and look at items

    17, 18 & 19

    Hello Robin,

    you rock! Thanks a lot for this great help. The issue is solved.

    I will post your solution in the forum of the theme, so that the developers and other users can find it as well.

    Have a great weekend,

    Wiebke
