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
Landed on master: https://github.com/jsocol/kitsune/commit/f2c71139313302010d7e9b14135489c9b17ce6a3 Hides the reply fields and the 'Post a new thread' link when user is logged in but does not have permission to post in the forum.
Verified reply field and post a new thread are hidden when user isn't an admin
