Description

7 years ago
Users without admin permissions see the Lost Threads forum and the reply field, but get an Access Denied message if they try to post. This repro's in prod as well as stage. As this is a forum intended to file away contributor posts that have been pushed to /questions I believe the intent was to not have users reply there- in which case the field should not display.

1) log in as a non-admin user
2) https://support-release.allizom.org/en-US/forums/lost-threads/704893
3) add reply > submit

expected: no permission to post should remove reply field
actual: access denied message after user submits
