So in the midst of this change to bbPress, and while I’ve been incredibly impressed, the moderator functions are a bit perplexing.
Problem No 1: Currently, if Moderator ‘A’ deletes a post, it’s viewable to him on the front-end as something that can be restored. However, no other moderator or even Key Master can view this, unless they go in through the back-end and check the Trash. Logically, you would think that if all mods can see this queue on the back-end, it would be visible on the front-end to them as well. If mods take a team approach, as they often do, this would be a must.
But the real problem begins on the back-end, and assuming my bbPress is installed and functioning correctly (I’ve reverted to TwentyTwelve in case it’s a theme problem), posts that sit in the trash cannot be restored. Every time we try to Restore a post from the back-end, we’re met with “Are you sure you want to do this?” and an error occurs.
Problem No. 2: Key Masters can move a post to another forum from the front-end. Moderators cannot move a post from the front-end, but *CAN* move a post from the back-end.
Again, these inconsistencies are perplexing.
Unless, of course, my site is buggy … but like I said, I’ve deactivated all other plug-ins and even switched back to TwentyTwelve and it persists.
