Got some strange permalink thing going on with existing users. They are all part of a private group as per Robin’s private group plugin. I created a new user to test and that user can post new topics as normal in the forum. However existing users, when they post a new topic, are creating topics with the ?post_type=topic&p=6609 type slug, not the pretty permalink.
I have reset Permalinks under settings. I have tried changing them and then changing them back but this doesn’t seem to be relevant since new subscribers can post no problem.
I checked the private group members and noticed that they had a couple of permissions set to ‘deny’ that the new user had set to ‘allow’. These included View Private Topic, but again this can’t be relevant as the forum is actually public. I have checked and double checked the differences between the existing forum members and the new forum member and they are now the same, but the existing users can still not post creating the pretty permalink.
