[resolved] Why do my posts to a specific plugin's forum get closed within seconds? (3 posts)

    This is most annoying. I've tried to post a problem to the WP_UserOnline forum and it keeps getting closed by bbPress. However the post still shows up in this general Plugins and Hacks forum. I tried to show some code as regular text but it got resolved. I tried to edit the post and discovered that the post was closed withing seconds! Next I tried reposting with a different title using the code tagging around the code I wanted to show but that didn't work either. I tried to edit the post and found it had also been quickly closed. Is trying to show the code why it keeps getting closed so quickly?

    I can't even reply to my own post or add the tags that were supposed to be with the post.

    Will the pre tag work? How does bbPress get involved with this?

    Thank you Esmi. That helps explain it. I guess I didn't notice the "Place code in between backticks." below the line of allowed markup. It hadn't occurred to me that that would be needed in addition to the code markup. Now I will try to repost the problem using the backticks.

    It would be helpful if the phrase about the backticks was put in parenthesis just after the word "code" in the allowed markup line so people understand that both are needed. For example:
    Allowed markup: a blockquote code (put actual code in between backticks) em strong ul ol li.

    Adding the link you gave above below that would also help for more information as there is no help indicated anywhere for the Reply box.
