Any chance this can be looked at or answered? This is kinda a huge issue……..
Are you using the latest versions of bbPress/WordPress?
I’ve never heard of this happening at all since 2.0 has been released. I have no cluet what’s going on, but we’re going to need a lot more information.
Can you duplicate this?
We need to know the steps taken to “break” it. Specifically, what “edit” link did she click? On what post? When it took her to the edit page, what was the full URL? That sort of information.
You need to ask the user for step by step direction on how this occurred. We need to duplicate it to see if it is indeed a real bug or just something breaking on your site due to a theme/plugin conflict. 🙂
I am using the latest wordpress and latest bbpress.
I can recreate it. It was the first thing I did before posting here in fact :P. Being a software dev it was step 1. I created a new user account the same as all my users, I made a post on a forum and also tried replying to 1. I then clicked the edit button, it opened the edit form which showed all of the wordpress posts. When I use my Key Master account, I don’t see this, I am able to edit properly. Same goes for my other admins who have been editing there posts

Man this is weird. I think its a plugin or the theme hijacking the query or something which is making bbPress go haywire.
Two things to do to narrow down the problem.
1) Temporarily switch you theme (just for a moment) to TwentyTen. Does the problem still happen? If no, then your theme is conflicting with bbPress, if yes this proceed to 2.
2) Temporarily disable all plugins other than bbPress. It will likely start working when they are all disabled if you got this far. Then turn them on one by one until you find the culprit.
I just changed the theme and it seemed to work with my test account. Seems I will have to talk to the theme makers and see if they can fix the issue. Thanks for the heads up 🙂
