When one looks at a forum post by @helenef on ( ) her forum role is shown as moderator even though on the backend she is listed as a participant.

Also, oddly, in the list of members, "Moderator" does not appear to be one of the choices. They are:

Administrator | Editor | Subscriber | Keymaster | Participant

When logged out, the displayed forum role is correct. Only when logged in does the role for Helene change to Moderator, which is odd.

Awhile ago, when we had a similar issue, I used bbPress' admin tool to remap existing users to default forum roles. I don't know if this is a side-effect of this or whether this is just an older bug that has popped up because we're currently using an older version of bbPress on

I can't reproduce this after upgrading bbPress et al to the latest versions. Matt or Ray, can you please verify?

Yup - I can confirm that this is fixed. Thanks, Boone.
