Participants can't create topics/post replies

    @karloy

    After recent upgrades (not sure if 2.3 or 2.3.1) all my “participant” users can’t reply to or post new topics. I tried many things based on user role post, but I’m still stuck.

    – Ran the repair tool to ensure all subscribers are mapped as forum “participants”
    – Used the “Members” plugins to enable subscribers to post/reply to forums
    – Re-installed bbpress
    – When through the code, and it appears participant don’t get granted to the proper rights.

    Even though it was not independent from the “blog” privileges before, it was way easier to use a visual permission editor.

    Any idea what to do?

    Found it – buddypress was applying a filter, and it does some wonky logic. Overwrote it in my theme.

    @Karloy can you give me some more information on how you fixed this. I have a similar problem where random users are thrown into pending with no message to them at the user end. If there is an issue with buddypress please tell me where it is and how you fixed this. Where can I find this filter.

    It could be a theme or plugin issue

    Plugins

    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    Themes

    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentyfifteen, and see if this fixes.

    Then come back
