New post does not pre-populate the Forum

Service: Hoop.la

When I'm in a forum and click POST, in the posting form the Forum is not prepopulated. This user "Your Name" has rights to read and post in the forum.

When I click POST I see the Create Topic form and the Forum is NOT prepopulated.

When I'm logged in as an Admin and I'm in a forum and I click Post, the Forum is prepopulated.

I was puzzled because a member reported this to me and I couldn't reproduce the problem until I logged in with a non-admin account.

How do I get things to work for regular members the way they work for me?

Thanks,

ST

Well, that sure sounds like a bug, especially if you are sure the non admin user has permission to post in the forum. If the user did not have permission, then the behavior would be correct.  Let me see if I can replicate the issue, though.

Thanks, ST!

Hi, Ted.

Thanks for the quick replies. When do you think this might be resolved? I'm not pushing, but I'd like to report back to our members on the timing. It was a senior member of our management team who first noticed this and I know that he will ask.

Ouch. But thanks for the answer.

If this is a permissions thing,... Do you think I could put everyone in a permission circle and give them access to whatever it is that they need to make this work, (without giving away the keys to the kingdom?)

Hi ST,

It's not a permission issue. The link in the dropdown works properly, which is why it's working for you. Regular users don't have the ability to post any other content types, so there is no dropdown. That's where the discrepancy lies and the bug comes from.

Hope that helps,

Brian
