WP FB Autoconnect users unable to post new topics

  • Ash Shaw



    Members who log into our sites through Facebook (using WP-FB-Autoconnect) are unable to create new topics. When clicking on the “New Topic” button a message displays: “You cannot create new topics at this time”.

    At first I thought it must be related to user privileges, but I’ve tried setting FB connected users to administrator and the issue still occurs. Members who log in with the traditional login form do not experience this problem.


    WP 3.2.1

    BuddyPress 1.5.1

    bbPress 2.0.1

    WP-FB-Autoconnect 2.1.6

    After more testing it appears that it’s not only WP-FB-Autoconnect users who are unable to post. Only the super admin account ‘admin’ is able to post. All other users receive the message “You cannot create new topics at this time”, even if I set their user privileges to ‘administrator’.

    One more update: I tested on my local install with bbPress 2.0, an the issue does not occur.

    The dev and live sites are on 2.0.1, and the issue occurs on both. So I’m thinking this may be a bug in the latest plugin update?

    I am having the same issue with 2.0.1 on vanilla install. I found this thread which seems to contain an identical error:

    Is it possible that this has resurfaced somehow in the latest update?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Just to clarify a few things:

    I further updated my local bbPress plugin to 2.0.1 (as on dev and live) and it continues to work fine. The issue still remains on dev and live though.

    Our forum landing page consists of the template parts content-archive-forum.php and content-archive-topic.php.

    content-archive-topic.php calls form-topic.php – we’ve used js to show/hide the form (or in this case the error message) when the “New Topic” button is pressed.

    The issue only occurs on the forum landing page – adding a topic to individual forums works fine.

    If it will help you can check out one of the sites here:

    Login with facebook on the landing page, and then go to (we’ve temporarily hidden the menu item).
