I've been working with this plugin for hours now and am about ready to delete it. It installs easy and looks great but there is no way to post a new topic or comment as the WordPress Administrator and after I logged out, I created a bogus user account to see if I could participate in the forum as a a casual web user. Nope. I could register and log in but there was no Forum to post anything to and no way to post a new topic or post. I checked other websites of people who posted questions about the same topic asking for help, and their forums were same way. No way to post new topics or comments in any of the "forums." I could register but then once I was in their "backend" as a subscriber I could not post any comments to anything.
I watched every video tutorial there is and the layout and icons used in the videos don't match what I downloaded and when the video narrator shows you how to set everything up and then post a sample topic, it simply can't be done because the button is not there.
I'll sleep on it, but something tells me I'm going to have to delete this plugin and try something else: There is simply no way to post new topics whether you're a website Administrator or outsider who registers.
