#2807 closed defect (invalid)

Unknown bug/issue giving some users errors and inability to post.

Reported by: ridecbrcom Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5.7
Component: General - Content Creation Keywords: reporter-feedback
Cc: admin@…


On my site we have several users who are emailing us and stating that they can't post in specific forum categories. They can post in all other categories, but one. This seems to be completely random. Different users cannot post in different categories.

The latest user can post in our main lobby forum but can't post in a specific subforum.

Everything is up to date and there is no spam protection or plugin that I can think of that could possibly be doing something like this. It's like the permissions for certain forums are locked down for only certain people. Triple checked all the settings, nothing shows up as spam, and nothing is different that I can see in the admin panel or code or settings.

We're using BuddyBoss for our theme, and their support is awesome (for anyone looking for a theme for bbpress/buddypress).. but even they are seeing issues on their own support forum.. here is their reply when I discussed this with them:

We have had some users unable to do this as well, even on I don't think it is anything to do with your server. I personally think it is either bbpress or something with their computer setup or internet settings.

Any ideas? Seems like a huge bug to me, but that's relative.

Thank you in advance.

  • Keywords reporter-feedback added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Under Consideration
  • Priority changed from highest to normal
  • Severity changed from major to normal

Will need more information to troubleshoot this.

Remember that "Forums" and "Categories" are different things in bbPress, in that forums are allowed to have new topics posted to them, and Categories only exist to create a forum hierarchy and cannot be posted to. (Maybe this should be more clearly stated in the metabox?)

Can you clarify some details about your installation, configuration, the capabilities of your users, and what type of forum you are able to duplicate this in?
