After upgrading to 1.8 from 1.63, teachers cannot access existing teacher forums (access denied). As admin, you are able to view the headlines of the forum but when you click on them to view the article, you receive an empty page.
When creating new courses, a teacher's forum is NOT set up automatically. When creating one manually, everything works fine including "roles" and viewing articles.
Any help, especially with restoring the forum entries, would be greatly appreciated.
I've observed this bug too and added a report in the tracker - bug MDL-9590. Perhaps you could add more information to help ensure it's quickly fixed.
Edit: Admins can now see the posts in the legacy Teacher Forums, but the teachers still can not.
I am experiencing problems with Teachers accessing Teacher forums on two courses. We are a 1.9.5+ site. Both Teachers are assigned the Teacher Role but when they try to access the Teacher Forums they get Access denied! Any help please?
