How to fix “ERROR: Your topic cannot be created at this time” bbPress

ERROR: Your topic cannot be created at this time is a bbPress error message that occurs when the user is restricted from creating a topic. The ERROR: Your topic cannot be created at this time message in bbpress can occur for different reasons:

ERROR: Your topic cannot be created at this time

1. A WordPress spam plugin is enabled and blocked the user from publishing a blacklisted word

If you use a WordPress forum spam plugin or plugin that blocks comments based on certain trigger words your plugin may have caused the error message to occur. In order to fix the ERROR: Your topic cannot be created at this time message you will need to examine your plugins settings in order to determine what triggered the error message and remove the trigger if it is necessary.

2. The user attempted to publish a word that has been added to the Comment Blacklist

The WordPress Comment Blacklist is located in the Settings > Discussion page. The blacklist will block certain words inputted into the blacklist. If you use this blacklist it may have caused the error message to occur. If this is the case you will need to examine your plugins settings in order to determine what triggered the error message and remove the trigger if it is necessary.
