    @redwolf83

    Hello all,

    Thanks in advance for all your coding guys.

    As writeen in the topic, I would like to be able to have a forum where only moderators can create new topics, and other users can only reply to these.

    there’s a plugin over there to make this? or I can modify functions.php of my child-theme to have this that works?

    Thanks for your Attention and for your work guys.

    Have a Nice day!

    Thanks, that is very helpful, but it change roles globally. I need it for a specific forum.

    • is possible call these actions to an existing role?
    • and is possible call them only for a specific forum

    I tried this but seems not work…. :/

    // BBPRESS ROLES CONFIG FOR SPECIFIC FORUM
    
    if ( bbp_forum_title(); == "My Forum Title" ) {
    
    	function add_role_caps_filter( $caps, $role )
    	{
        	/* Only filter for roles we are interested in! */
        	if( $role == 'participant' )
            	$caps = custom_capabilities( $role );
     
    	    return $caps;
    	}
     
    	add_filter( 'bbp_get_caps_for_role', 'add_role_caps_filter', 10, 2 );
     
    	function custom_capabilities( $role )
    	{
        	switch ( $role )
        	{
     
            	/* Capabilities for 'tutor' role */
            	case 'participant':
               	 return array(
                    	// Primary caps
                   		'spectate'              => true,

    sorry capabilities are forum wide, and lots of code would be needed to make them forum specific.

    I can’t immediately think of an alternate solution

    @redwolf83

    Ok, Thanks. I have already thought an alternate solution. If forum == “forum” → If user_role == participant → sweep away the topic composer from the forum. I’ve hide the dashboard and admin bar for participant, so this could be a solution I think. May you help me to make something like this?

    yes you would just put that code in form-topic.php

    wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/form-topic.php

    create a directory on your theme called ‘bbpress’
    ie wp-content/themes/%your-theme-name%/bbpress

    where %your-theme-name% is the name of your theme

    find
    wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/form-topic.php

    Make a copy of this file, and put in in the directory called bbpress that you created above, so you end up with
    wp-content/themes/%your-theme-name%/bbpress/form-topic.php

    bbPress will now use this template instead of the original

    you can then look at how the form does this, and put the appropriate lines in.

    Ok, Thanks Robin, I’ve solved the matter.

    at the beginning of form-topic.php I’ve added this code

    <?php 
    $forumid = bbp_get_forum_id();
    if ($forumid == YourForumID(in numbers without quote.)  ) {
    	$displayed_user = bbp_get_user_id( 0, false, true ); 
    	$role = bbp_get_user_role($displayed_user);
    	if ( $role == "bbp_participant" ) {
                   echo '<div class="bbp-template-notice">This forum is marked as closed to new topics from participant, however your can reply to existing topics</div>';
                   return; } 
    }
     ?>

    Thanks for your help, :) ::cheers::
    Have a Nice day!
