    Hi,
    I noticed problem this morning.

    Steps
    1. Fresh WP 4.6.1 – my structure: http://localhost/<subfolder/
    2. Install and activate bbPress 2.5.11
    3. Everything good
    4. Update WP 4.6.1 to 4.7-RC1-39355 (via beta-tester plugin)
    5. Menu items: “Forums”, “Topics” and “Replies” are gone

    Asked also 2 other people to replicate steps with subfolder and no-subfolder structure.
    They confirmed it as well.

    Thanks for testing bbPress and WordPress 4.7 RC1

    You’ve beaten me to testing it, I’ll investigate this further tomorrow myself (~9:30pm here)

    Had a poke around while confirming the issues, I’m not sure how this happened, but it’s a capability check failing. unfortunately the installation of a capability plugin to check mine reset the caps and all was good again.

    @andreasneuber, what happens if you update your forum role to keymaster again, does the menu items re-appear?

    Good point.
    I tried out these additional steps:

    7. Go to http://localhost/bbpress_100/wp-admin/users.php
    8. The “Siterole” for myself there is => “Adminstrator, Keymaster”
    9. Choose in “Change forum role to..” dropdown “Keymaster” and resave
    10. Refresh page => Menu items: “Forums”, “Topics” and “Replies” still gone

    11. Go again to http://localhost/bbpress_100/wp-admin/users.php
    12. Change role to “Particpant” and then back to “Keymaster”
    13. Refresh page => Menu items: “Forums”, “Topics” and “Replies” still gone

    So in short, update forum role to keymaster didn’t to the trick with me.

    So that this doesn’t get lost, a ticket has been created for tracking it at https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3028

    I’ve set it as a bbPress ticket, as any other custom post types in other plugins are working as expected, and it seems capabilities in bbPress are not being applied under wp-admin as they should be.

    Please leave any additional information on the ticket if some should pop up, I’ll mark this topic as resolved for now so that we know it has an associated ticket.

    Hi Everyone,

    I upgraded to 4.7 and bbpress forum does not show at all. Downgraded to 4.6.1 and it’s back again.

    I will leave it at 4.6.1 until this issue is resolved.

    It could be a problem with a theme but I suspect it is an issue with 4.7 and bbpress so I can wait.

    Jim
