Clean answer on mod only can post forums

  • billsaysthis


    I’m new to bbPress though a longtime WP’er and would like to use bbPress for a new project. However one requirement that I cannot seem to nail down is whether or not we can have some forums in which only, say, moderators can post (while all logged in users can reply to those posts and anyone can read posts and replies).

    I searched here and in Google and have not found a definitive answer, at least not one which seems to work. However, this is a dealbreaker for us so thanks in advance if one of the more experienced forum members can give me an answer. Please note that doing this via a plugin is fine.

    By default bbpress does not have this ability built in.

    However it would be possible to edit your templates to allow only mods to start topics in certain forums, or do this via plugin.



    _ck_ – you make it sound so easy! ;)

    How would I go about making just one of my forums admin-post-only and member-read-and-reply-only? I’m comfortable enough with editing the templates, I just don’t know what part I’d need to change.

    Hope you can help me with this!
