cant create topics for standart users

    Hello there,

    I am still having problem with creating new topics and replies for standart users (non-admins).

    There is a group I created and noone besides admin is able to post a single message there. It displays this message; You cannot create new topics.

    Same as for “reply”!!

    It forces every member to JOIN the GROUP first and then it enables.

    All the groups are set to Public. When or how can this problem be solved?

    The creator of the template said, this is the developer’s area where they support and guided me here.

    Hoping to get this problem resolved soon.

    If anyone has the codes to overcome this problem, contact me please. I’ll arrange a freelancer to solve the problem. I think it’s not a problem that can’t be solved in a year time. I opened up a topic a year ago for the same reason, and yet no solution. Too bad that noone is handling the issue, not even daring to reply! :/

    hi @wolfied,

    it’s difficult to help if you don’t give details.

    BP/WP version, install type, PHP version, theme name and used plugins. An URL would be welcome too, at least to the mentionned topic. Thank you.

    All right, here we go:
    http://inviteshare.net/groups/world-wide-news/forum/

    Noone can create any any topics under this Entire forum. It’s not just one topic, but instead, none works. So, for the public groups, anyone should be able to post without joining this. Even the members are complaining about it. If needed, I can give you moderator/admin access to the forum for your helping me out.

    I seem to believe that groups are only usable by its members and therefor also any group forum.

    Public only means that the group will be listed and viewed by the public, only mebers of those groups can actually post on their forums.

    Better make a regular forum with that name where all can post, and have a sticky post for people to join the actual group to start topics in their “private but publi” forum.

    At least that is what I think, but I might be wrong.

    I just read the codex on this and it is conflicting….at least for me.
    here is what confuses me:

    When a user posts to the discussion forum of a public group, the user automatically becomes a member of the group.

    But we are not allowed to post, that is the message Buddypress shows when going to a public groups forum, instead we get

    Oh bother! No topics were found here!

    followed by

    You cannot create new topics.

    So how do we automatically join this group by posting?

    My guess is that there was some confusion when Buddypress wrote that part of the codex and now it sounds like all members can post on the forums of a public group and will automatically join that group.

    Is there anyone taking care of this problem ? The group is public and noone can post unless they join to the group which doesn’t make any sense. I wait for the positive replies and guidings. IT needs to be corrected somehow.

    What problem? the initial comment is along the right lines Groups require members you can’t post or partake in them unless you join the group, perhaps take up the suggestion to create a forum outside of groups?

    @peter-hamilton Hmm that used always to be the process, updating or posting to a group automatically joined you to the group if it was ‘Public’; The codex may need updating or we may have regressed, I’ll have a delve into that.

    I’m not an expert on wordpress and I am afraid, I’m not sure as to how I can create the forum outside of groups. But my question is, if a group is set to public, it should be reffering that it’s visible to anyone and it must NOT be compulsory to join the group for the public groups. Why can’t this be done?

    Any guide for carrying the whole forum outside the groups ? how would it effect me?

    > and it must NOT be compulsory to join the group for the public groups. Why can’t this be done?
    Perhaps it can be, suggest it on a trac enhancement ticket if you feel that strongly, by default groups need members, BP list participants in a group or at least can track things if people are matched with a group.

    bbP forums is a standalone plugin that ties in to BP due to historical use of forums in groups, but you can create forums outside of BP groups and categorize/nest them but bbP support and documentation better explains how to setup bbPress, although we have a decent guide in our codex too just have a look through the docs 😉 but do come back with any questions you might have to doing this if things still not clear.
