So I am using Role Editor Pro and have an issue with the permissions on the ability to delete Topics in the Forums of Woffice. If I de select the “delete_other_topics” from the chooses I lose the ability to remove my OWN topics. Once I select it I can indeed remove my topics but also all others. What is the difference between delete others and just delete? I want to only delete my own topics.
Also, if I have to keep this on so that everyone can delete all topics how do I set the “Are you sure” type warnings that come up when you are the super admin? What is that called and can I turn that on? Thanks!08/07/2019 at 05:03 #5798
According to mentioned ‘delete_other_topics’ capability I suppose that you use bbPress plugin for work with forum. Please confirm?10/07/2019 at 17:03 #5804
Confirm that Vladimir. Sorry for the delay!11/07/2019 at 01:12 #5805
In general ‘delete_others_topics’ should allow to delete topic created by other user. User without this capability should be able to delete own topics only.
Do you use a role provided by bbPress, like participant? Or do you grant bbPress capabilities to a custom role?
Check full list of capabilities available to your user. Go to Users and click ‘Capabilities’ link under the user row. Click ‘Granted Only’ checkbox, make screenshot and send a link to it here or screenshot itself to support [at-sign] role-editor.com.11/07/2019 at 01:40 #580612/07/2019 at 15:08 #5808
I have implemented the code you recommended in the function and it works great in getting me to only get my own replies to be deleted.
The issue I am having now (and last one as far as I can see) is the my bbParticipant can delete an entire forum. I can make one, which is what we want, but if that is the case I want to only blow up my own forum. My guess is the same theory applies here for deleting my own forums? Great tech support. Thanks!

Forum deletion is available via back-end only by default. Forums menu is available at wp-admin to user with ‘bbp_forums_admin’ capability.
Thus I’m wonder how it’s possible for your participant to create and delete forums. Does your theme add additional controls at front-end related to forum management?16/07/2019 at 15:07 #5816
Yes there are front end abilities to create forums and also delete others.
Trash and Reply seem to be standard inside a Forum. I only want the super to be able to Trash someone else’s Forum.16/07/2019 at 15:57 #5817
It seems that Woffice has updated user interface for bbPress with extended functinality. Can get access to its copy for testing? If Yes, share it via DropBox or similar with support [at-sign] role-editor.com22/07/2019 at 15:32 #5837
Done.23/07/2019 at 13:59 #5841
Got it. Thanks.
I will proceed with subject investigation from July 31st, when return from a small journey.05/08/2019 at 02:52 #5862
I did not find any special changes for bbPress permissions/capabilities inside WOffice theme. It seems something is changing during BuddyPress/bbPress integration. Is it possible to get admin access to your site?
If Yes, I would make a copy of files and data to setup a copy at my development environment and look what is going with bbPress permissions using your exact site settings/configuration. If that’s applicable, send URL and login credentials to support [at-sign] role-editor.com
