    Hi Guys,
    I’m having a bit of bother when using the visual editor in my forums. As an administrator I can get the image to align (eg) centrally but as a regualy user (Participant) the alignment wont take unless I add a caption.
    In all cases when I add a caption the html for the caption tag shows in the post.
    I’ve checked all the settings for all the plugin’s but cant find anything to correct this.
    Two examples via links. First as Admin second as Subscriber/Participant.

    Here is the code that is showing via the Text tab in the users post dialogue:

    HOT, HOT, HOT...or what?
    [caption id="" align="alignright" width="306"]<img src="" alt="miss piggy" width="306" height="372" /> You want some of this?[/caption]

    Participants cannot use shortcodes by default in bbPress.

    You will have to use a filter to allow the shortcodes.

    I will post a code snippet and possibly link to a guide when I am off mobile.

    Also weird picture to use for your second example haha



    I forgot about this plugin which will essentially allow certain shortcodes like the caption shortcode.

    Just add caption to the input box for the allowed shortcodes in the plugins settings page.



    Thanks for that. You’ve got an answer for everything haven’t you. What a star!
    Really appreciate the fix as I’ve already told “the committee” that members won’t have to understand b-i-link-b-quote etc to use our forum. Like a lot of committees it is largely comprised of the wrong people…”Bah, don’t do forums…” “Can’t they use that Facebook…”
    I’m so glad I was volunteered to implement the rebuild 😉
