Keymaster has no permissions

  • Blaze Miskulin


    Fresh install of WordPress 4.5.2
    Fresh install of bbPress 2.5.9-6017
    Only other plugin: WP Spamshield
    Theme: Moon
    All settings left at default.

    As Admin/Keymaster, I am unable to create new topics or reply to topics already posted, when in the forums. I can post a new topic from the dashboard.

    The error (when trying to post from the forums) reads:
    ERROR: You do not have permission to reply.

    To test, I created a new user with the “participant” role. That user can create new topics and reply to topics. It’s only the Keymaster who is forbidden from posting.

    This would appear to be a problem. 🙂

    bbPress is tested with wordpress default themes. It maybe a conflict – you need to check plugins and themes

    It could be a theme or plugin issue


    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.


    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentyfifteen, and see if this fixes.

    Then come back

    Okay, now I’m very confused. It appears to be the WP Spamshield plug-in–but I have another install with both bbPress and Spamshield and it works fine (which is why I didn’t bother testing it at first).

    I’ll check the support page for the plug-in.

    I’m working with the WP SpamShield team, but I’ll also post the error here just in case it helps.
