Logged in user posts as Anonymous

    As descriped in the title, if a logged in user replies on a topic then instead of the name it anonymous is displayed. How can I correct this?

  • Can you add some more details please?

    Does this happen if you do this yourself with a new test user?

    If you could add some reproducible steps like these:

    1. Create a new user testuser
    2. Add the participant role to testuser
    3. Signed in as admin I create a topic xyz
    4. Log out of admin, login as testuser
    5. Reply to topic xyz

    Actual Result:

    I see the reply author as….

    Expected Result:

    I expected to see the reply author as….



    Hi Stephen

    What I did was the following:

    1. Installed bbpress as mentioned
    2. Updated the flooding time to 0
    3. Auto assigned the standard roles to the user via Tools -> bbp-repair
    4. As admin I created a forum with status “open” and visibility “public”
    5. As admin I created a topic with status “open”
    6. I logged in with a non admin user and tried to reply on the topic which I’ve created as admin.

    My result is now that the user displayed is Anonymous even with logged in user.

    I would expect that the name from the logged in user is used instead of Anonymous.

    Do I miss something in the configuration?

    Best regards,

    Thanks @marco_b, I couldn’t reproduce this behaviour using those same steps.

    Do you also have “Anonymous posting” enabled/checked?

    Can you also try again with all your other plugins disabled.

    p.s. I’m not sure what it is you’ve set from “Updated the flooding time to 0”

    Is that the “Disallow editing after” or “Throttle posting every” setting?

    Or is it from a plugin?



    So it looks like a plugin which has an action of Woocommerce “manage_shop_order_posts_custom_column” breaks the functionality to display the name.

    As this function is only needed within the admin area I managed it be surrounding the function with “is_admin” and now bbPress works as expected

    Great, glad you’re sorted, if you file an issue for WooCommerce linking to this topic and linking back to the issue would be great, thanks
