#3309 assigned defect

Allow moderators to reply to pending topics

Reported by: dd32 Owned by: johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 2.6.6 Priority: high
Severity: normal Version:
Component: API - Moderation Keywords: has-patch


While looking into I found what I think is a bug in bbPress.

It looks like bbp_current_user_can_access_create_reply_form() only checks if the moderator can edit the reply, but in the case of a pending topic without any replies, there's no reply object to check against.

Attached patch seems to work, but I have no idea if it's correct or how it should be done.

  • Keywords needs-testing removed

I check the patch with these steps and it works:

1- Login as a moderator
2- Go to 'All Topics' in admin area
3- Click on 'View' link of a Pending topic
4- Content and Reply form showed normally

It works because of view=all in topic url.
If you open the topic url directly(without get method), you will see the reply form only.
