Adding user roles to ultimate member WP Forums

Support 3 replies 0 votes 610 views


I am able to get the Forums frontend topic form and reply buttons to come up when logged in as admin but not when logged in as my social author user. I added the permissions to the role and am able to create from the wordpress dashboard but the buttons still aren't appearing on the public frontend. My ultimate member plugin overrides the default user login and registration form for ForumWP. Is there a way to add the ForumWP roles to new and existing users to get this front end to come up when they are logged in?
