#4904 new enhancement

Allow moderators to reply to archived or spam topics

Reported by: sterndata Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


Now that one can use an @name to send mail even if it the "name"'s post has been marked as spam or archived, it would be nice to be able to reply to the post. When the first post in a topic has been marked as spam or archived, moderators are not permitted to reply.

This also applies if a post is "pending".

This looks like a bbPress bug - I've opened https://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/3309

The capability checks seem to be basing the reply form off whether or not the current user can edit the reply but there's no reply object so it's false, even though the mod can edit the topic.

If it's not-a-bug in bbPress, we can probably make this happen through the bbp_current_user_can_access_create_reply_form filter, although there might be more places that need changing.
