This area defines the privileges and restrictions for the bbPress forums.
Lock post editing after
Set this to the time (in number of minutes) to limit post editing. Once the time limit has been reached the forum post no longer be available for editing to forum participants. Administrators and bbPress Moderators can override this setting at any time.
Set this to the minimum time (in seconds) between posting new replies in bbPress forums. This is useful to help stop spamming or other attempts to interrupt the normal flow of the forum.
WordPress stores a new version of posts each time a draft is saved or a post is edited and republished. Enable or disable this for bbPress topics and replies here. To learn more about revisions, check the WordPress codex article on Revision Management.
Forum participants can “favorite” any topic. These topics are available later for review from the participant’s forum profile. Additionally a custom RSS feed is available allowing participants to stay up to date on topics that are important to them.
Forum participants can elect to subscribe to a topic. They will be notified when a new reply is posted and subscribed forum topics will appear on their forum profile.
Allow Topic Tags
This will disable topic tags site wide and will no longer show topic tags associated with each topic or the topic tag input form.
Allow Anonymous Posting
