New site admin, no keymaster role

    http://www.t-34.com
    bbPress Version 2.5.14
    WordPress 4.8.9 running Sahifa theme.

    I just recently took over admin and cleanup of the above site. My role is Administrator, Participant in WP. I am not able to delete some forums that have aged quite a bit and have no activity. When I try to access the forums for administrative cleanup I get the following message:

    “Sorry, you are not allowed to edit posts in this post type.”

    I noted that the previous admin has Administrator, Keymaster role. I have searched through every menu, plugin and widget possible but the option of Keymaster does not seem to exist anywhere so I cannot promote myself to Keymaster.

    I have tried to use the change forum role but the only options are Moderator, Participant, Spectator and Blocked. I also created a new user with Administrator role, then edited the user but the only options under forum role are Moderator, Participant, Spectator and Blocked.

    Kinda stuck here. Any suggestions?

    yep, that’s a wordpress standard which bbpress also obeys- you can’t change your own privileges !!

    so create a temporary admin account with administrator privilege, and log in as that temporary account – then go into

    dashboard>users>edit users>’your old account name’ and edit, and near the bottom you will see that you can change yourself to keymaster.

    Once saved, you can then delete the temporary admin account

    🙂

    ok, just re-read your post, and that may not fix it – I suspect there is some code somewhere that is blocking setting of keymasters.

    Robin,

    Thanks, as you noted I did try to create a temp admin account but no luck. Anyone else have any ideas?

    ok, something has removed the keymaster role.

    what plugins are you running ?
