GD Topic Polls Pro 3.4 for bbPress

Today, both GD Topic Polls Pro for bbPress version 3.4 and GD Topic Polls Lite for bbPress version 1.6 have been released with changes related to the check to determine if the current user can create or edit the poll.

Over the past 6 months, many users reported issues related to the check to determine if the user can create a new poll. This check was done by using the capability ‘gdpol_create_poll’ and dynamically assigning it to bbPress roles. But, several third-party plugins that work with user roles had issues with bbPress dynamic roles and were actually storing capabilities for individual users for whatever reason, causing huge issues with the capability check. While some plugins included fixes, the problem was not solved completely, so I have decided to offer an alternative method for this check, based only on checking user roles. Option for this has been added in the plugin settings, so if you are affected, change the Method under ‘Users allowed to create polls’ in Basic plugin settings.

There are few smaller changes in both plugin editions, including a fix for the saving poll processing where the user capability was not properly checked. Let me know if this new version fixes the issue with poll creation.
