Groups mod cannot delete

  • Danpajosite



    I am searching the net for days now but i cannot find an answer.

    When i promote a user to Groups mod the user can edit the group forum. However the user cannot edit or delete a group activity of someone else.

    Then i tried to give the sidewide Moderator role to the same user but still the mod cannot delete activities.

    It’s clear to me the admin settings won\t show up but i thought a mod should have the possibility to delete activities of other users.

    Can someone help me out with this please?

    regards Jap

    ps my site is (its in dutch)

    Ok, so I thought I was either crazy or missing something simple, but this exact same thing is happening to me.

    I ‘promote’ a member to Moderator, their avatar shows up as “Group Mod” – however, they never realize the ability to delete content within that group (except their own, of course).

    Interestingly, after this ‘promotion’ their Forum role never changes from ‘participant’ in the WP users page, and their Site role stays at Subscriber. (not sure if that is normal behavior?)

    I have deactivated all the other plugins except bbpress and buddypress, and the required theme plugins. I have tried it on two different themes.

    If I promote the user to Group Admin, they do realize the delete privileges, but that’s not what I want to do as it includes other group edit functions.

    WP 4.1
    BP 2.2
    bbp 2.54

    Any guidance is greatly appreciated.



    So we’re about two months later, the problem remains, and I’m kinda bummed that no one around here cares enough to even respond.

    I get that BP is a volunteer deal, and I’m amazed at the commitment and how cool some of the stuff is that is put out, but I’d still think that when something comes across as a potential issue or problem that folks would care enough about the product to respond.

    So, if I may, I’d like to place a little BUMP on this thing, as guidance would still be appreciated.




    In case anyone was wondering, this was resolved by the fine folks over here.

    Just cleaning up after myself. I can’t close because I was not the OP. 🙂
