Forum Permissions by User's Role

Description

So I was just browsing bbPress plugins , and I stumble across this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress-protected-forums/, which will remove the topic form if the user with a certain role is disallowed in the forum meta-box settings.

This is a commonly requested feature from users in the support forums and seems very simple to do if you look at the plugins code.

It would also be great to disallow replies to topics in a specific forum the same way.

In #459 we're using a custom taxonomy for moderators per forum, this sounds like it would easily extend for this also.

I think this is best left to a third-party plugin to handle.

Private/hidden forum support for specific roles/groups can be complicated and non-performant, especially on large forums. To implement this deeply will require a dedicated look-up table to make permissions very speedy, and starts to go against the bbPress mantra of simplicity & performance.

Close this one as maybelater in the event we repurpose our mission to include more robust features like this one. <3
