[resolved] WP E-Commerce breaking bbpress? (4 posts)

    I've got a stock install of v3.5.1

    - Running stock twenty-twelve theme.
    - Installed WP E-commerce v3.8.11
    - Installed bbpress v2.3.2
    - Installed Gravity Forms v1.7.5

    Activated Gravity Forms, then WP E-Commerce, then bbpress.

    Upon activating bbpress, got an error "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."

    If I navigate around the admin, I see that bbpress is activated but none of the menu items (Forums, Topics, Replies) appear and I get the same error when trying to go to the settings.

    When I deactivate WP e-Commerce, bbpress works like normal. Is there something WPeC does with user roles that I need to know about?

    I haven't made any content changes to the site at all (no posts, pages, products, forums, anything) it's a stock install database. Am I missing something that would cause this? I'm sure there can't be a fundamental conflict between these two plugins as I'm they're both used on a lot of the same sites.

    Yea, I am also getting the same error, with the following software combination.

    WP : Version 3.5.2
    BBpress : Version 2.3.2
    Buddypress: Version 1.7.2
    WP e-commerce : Version 3.8.12

    Whenever I activate wp e-commerce plugin bbpress just stopped working.

    I have found a quick work around.
    Install this plugin and reset the user capability for "author" and "subscriber".
    HTH Cheers!!!

    Should be fixed in the next release of WP-e-commerce: https://github.com/wp-e-commerce/WP-e-Commerce/issues/497#issuecomment-20122717
