Issues with Edit buttons and Topic Visibility
Couple of issues… I’m not sure what version of wordpress is being run (as ridiculous as this sounds. I came in halfway on a project, and another developer I got to look at the site also could not tell me), but it is something before 3.8. The bbPress version is 2.4.1. Site only shows a splash page to non-members, and registration is blocked, so a link to it would be pointless.
1) Hitting “Edit” on a topic as administrator puts the HTML for the editor into the text box of an editor. If I hit “submit” without changing the contents, it edits the topic, but includes the edit form in the topic. Here is a screenshot. Clicking on submit in the resulting form within the topic does the edit as it should. I am not sure if this happens for regular members… see issue 3.
2) Clicking “Edit” on a reply results in the following message:
“There’s nothing here.
If there were posts in the database, you’d be seeing them. Try creating a post, and see if that solves your problem.”
When I go to the dashboard > replies, I can clearly see all the replies listed there.
3) I realize this is a known issue, but I could not find a good resolution for my case. Topics are not viewable by regular members, but all replies are viewable. Anyone with bbPress moderator role and above can view topics just fine. s2member is being run on the site, and from what I understand, s2member admins get bbPress moderator roles, while bbPress moderators get s2member admin roles. I have tried disactivating the s2member plugin, and the topics show up fine then. I can’t ditch s2member, but obviously am not going to give every member admin/moderator roles just so they can see topics. In fact, every member should only be a participant. There should never be any need for moderators (save for the actual admin). I’ve checked visibility on the forums, and everything is set to public.
