Participant Moderator in backend

  • newtech1


    My forum is set up so that a forum user can only post in the backend/dashboard of my wordpress site because I never was able to get ACH plugin to work on the forum frontend. On the backend the ACF is working fantastic when a user posts a new topic.

    However, the new issue is that the only way a forum user can see the topic link in the dashboard is if they are a moderator or higher. My users will not be moderators but participates. Is there a way via code to make it so participants can log into the dashboard and see the topic link.

    Not sure this is achievable. The backend is meant for management. That you couldn’t get ACF to work is driving you down a path for which bbpress was never intended.

    I think that to see the topic and replies on the backend needs the ability to ‘edit_others_topics’ or the ability to ‘moderate’ – maybe both.



    I understand completely. Makes sense.
    I will have to find a plugin that makes it so I can limit permissions and capabilities per user role.
    There is Permissions Pro and Capabilities Pro plugins that give me all that I need but sadly they do not support ‘topic’ posts. Do you know of any other plugins?

    I have ACF to work great for me in the backend. All I need to do is put this code in content-single.php Maybe this will help somebody else who is using ACF with BBPress
    Catch Date & Time: <?php the_field( ‘catch_date_time’ ) ; ?><br>
    Anglers: <?php the_field( ‘anglers’ ) ; ?><br>
    Weather: <?php the_field( ‘weather’ ) ; ?><br>
    Fish Caught: <?php the_field( ‘fish_caught’ ) ; ?><br>
    Kept or Released: <?php the_field( ‘kept_or_released’ ) ; ?><br>
    Lake Point Marker: <?php the_field( ‘lake_point_marker’ ) ; ?><br>
    Water_Features: <?php the_field( ‘water_features’ ) ; ?><br>
    Speed: <?php the_field( ‘speed’ ) ; ?><br>
    Fish Depth: <?php the_field( ‘fish_depth’ ) ; ?><br>
    Lake Depth: <?php the_field( ‘lake_depth’ ) ; ?><br>
    Method Used: <?php the_field( ‘method_used’ ) ; ?><br>
    Lure & Color: <?php the_field( ‘lure_color’ ) ; ?><br>

    $image = get_field(‘image’);
    if( !empty( $image ) ): ?>
    ” alt=”<?php echo esc_attr($image[‘alt’]); ?>” />
    <?php endif; ?> <br>

    Fishing Location: <?php the_field( ‘location’ ) ; ?><br>
    $location = get_field(‘location’);
    if( $location ): ?>
    <div class=”acf-map” data-zoom=”13″>
    <div class=”marker” data-lat=”<?php echo esc_attr($location[‘lat’]); ?>” data-lng=”<?php echo esc_attr($location[‘lng’]); ?>”></div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    <style type=”text/css”>
    .acf-map {
    width: 100%;
    height: 400px;
    border: #ccc solid 1px;
    margin: 20px 0;

    If there was a way to make this code or another code to work in the frontend posting topics I would be thrilled to death. BUT ACF will not help me for BBPress and BBPress will not help me for ACF. If I knew code more I am sure I could figure it out. It cannot be that hard.
