bbPress – forums per blog?

    Wordpress 3.8.1
    Buddypress 1.9.1

    I would like to allow users to set up forums per site in Buddypress. So the admin of johndoe.blogcommunity.com would be able to have forums for his site, as would the admin of janesmith.blogcommunity.com for her site.
    Also, there would be forums for the ‘parent site’ blogcommunity.com, and for each Buddypress group.

    I have set up Sitewide and Group blogs for Buddypress using bbPress.
    The admins of each site are not shown a Forum menu option in their Dashboard menus.
    However, as super admin I can visit the johndoe.blogcommunity.com dashboard and create a forum for that site.

    So at the moment it is looking like a capabilities option – that non super-admins just don’t have caps to see the Forum creation menus.

    Is this the way it is intended to be set up, and is there a setting somewhere for enabling what I want?
    Or do I have to edit the capabilities settings in bbPress for that?

    Thanks.

    Hmm, looks like it was a temporary glitch – switching BBPress off and on again made the menus re-appear for site admins … :/

    OK, the menu options have disappeared again, on some of my sites, but not all.
    If I change this in bbpress.php

    
    'show_ui'             => current_user_can( 'bbp_topics_admin' ),

    to

    'show_ui' => current_user_can( 'manage_options' ),

    I can see the Topics menu. Same if I change the permissions for the Forums and Replies menu.
    Why should it be that the Forums, Topics and Replies menus are showing in some of my sites, but not others? I am administrator and keyholder in all of my sites.

    Can anyone shed any light on this?
