Participants aren't able to edit their own topics
When a user creates an account at http://thewritepractice.com/index.php?/register/JUZsw5 and then goes to the bbPress forum at http://thewritepractice.com/bw and posts a topic, there is an Edit link at the bottom of that topic. But when they click that link, they get this error message:
You are not allowed to edit this item.
A few notes:
- I’m on the latest version of WordPress.
- This problem persists when all plugins but bbPress is activated.
- This problem persists when the 2015 theme is activated.
I installed and activated the bbPress Advanced Capabilities plugin and learned that if I enabled “Edit others topics” for Participants, the participant could then edit their topic.
So in other words, bbPress thinks that the topic is being created by someone other than themselves.
Any ideas how this could be the case? It’s very strange…
