    Hello,

    Can someone help me trouble shoot this problem? I am using wp 3.5.1 and Buddypress 1.6.4. Everything is working well. The groups and forums are set up. Admin can post topics and replies, but users can’t. When a user tries to post the page refreshes, but nothing shows up. The admin account says “Your account has the ability to post unrestricted HTML content” in a yellow box. The user account says “This topic contains 0 replies, has 1 voice, and was last updated by admin 3 weeks ago” in a blue box. Not sure if that has anything to do with anything, but thought I’d include it just in case.

    Oh, I forgot to add that this is a multisite. Thanks!

    have you run the bbpress repair scripts? i have found that odd behaviors are sometimes resolved that way.

    Sorry, I didn’t get an email notification that there was a reply.

    Yes, I did that and it didn’t change anything. Any other ideas?

    does the user have a forum role? the text information you shared seems totally normal, fyi.

    I’m pretty green to Buddy Press but I had a similar problem yesterday where I set up a test account under some dummy name and I couldn’t post to it either. I have about 8 Buddy Press plug-ins and I’ve tested a bunch of others and while I can’t recall which one caused the problem, one did, since I disabled them all then turned them back on one by one. So a hail mary fix, but if you have a lot of plug-ins, might be worth a try. I’m using the standard version, not multisite.

    Yes, users have a forum role.

    I tried disabling plug-ins. No effect unfortunately.
