    I have a very customized wordpress site that has a bbpress forum. Because of ACF custom fields I must post topics from backend. Challenging to make it all work, Capabilties plugin helped resolve my challenges along with many edits. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because not many options when using it with bbpress forums-limited in editing bbpress forum roles.

    Hi @newtech1. Thanks for the kind words, although anything less than 5 stars is disappointing for us developers (it lowers our plugin’s overall ranking).

    The bbPress issue is because of the unique way that bbPress handles capabilities. We have a detailed explanation here: https://publishpress.com/blog/permissions/bbpress-roles-capabilities/. We have another plugin called PublishPress Permissions that has the extra code needed to support bbPress.

    I have permissions also. My challenge is users doing posts in the backend instead of the frontend. I do not want them moderating others posts, but if I prevent moderation then they cannot log into the dashboard. (Cannot create unique forum roles.) I tried permissions to solve the problem but no luck. So using forum Moderator with Contributor WordPress role. Edited frontend bbPress template code to remove lime links on post.

    There may be a way to use permissions to resolve this but then each new user would need to be put into the permissions group and we are using woocomnerce and simple press and not sure how all this interacts.

    we currently have 200 users to import once the website is completed.

    saying all this capabilities is making it so I can create several WordPress roles, most of which are allowed to have forum moderator backend capability.

    Thanks for the detailed explanation @newtech1. Yes, with customization needs like this, you’re outside what a plugin like ours can reasonably cover, particularly with a unique plugin like bbPress.
