Limit users from creating topics

  • Laura Slezak


    I am having an issue where all users, even with Participant or Spectator user permissions, are able to create their own topics for discussion. The way our site is set up, we want to limit the topic creation to admins or moderators. I cannot find a setting anywhere to turn off this ability for users to create new topics. using Learndash 3.5.1. I’m not certain the version of WordPress and bbPress we are using but both have been installed and updated in 2021. Thanks for your help.

    spectators should not be able to create topics.
    Participants by default can.

    you will either need to

    change participant permissions -see this

    Custom Capabilities

    or add

    Private groups

    and set up topic permissions which will then let you set up a group with permission to reply only
