would like to create a disccusion forum with such function
- admin/ moderator can view/edit/delete the topic in the discussion

- All users can create topic and can view all the topic title & only their own topic's content.

Problem:

everything works fine but they cant edit or view their own topic 

**screenshot explain
If I check Can enter topic, means they can access to others topic too.

wpForo Version
2.0.9
WordPress Version
6.0.2

Hi @fangfang94,

yes, wpForo doesn't have option to let users enter only topics created by them.

@fangfang94,

you can create new access Enable Can enter topic option for that access.

Create a new usergroup and Enable Can be also used as Secondary Usergroup option

And set the new created access to that usergroup in the forums.

So now those users who have a secondary usergroup, they can enter the forum topics ass well, but those which don't have the secondary usergroup cannot enter the topics only view them.

That's the only trick I can suggest. Don't know, would that work for you or not.
