I’ve put this as
ux as I don’t think it’s a bug per se, but something that might want to be made a bit more “obvious” to end users.
Clicking “Create Topic” in a category where you don’t have permission to do so (for example,
plugins here on Meta), still shows the editor, but with uncategorised as the category. Some (most?) end users won’t notice this, so their post will end up in the “wrong” place.
Couple of options I can think of:
- Hide the create topic button where a user doesn’t have permission to create a topic
- Throw up some sort of message (like the “Your topic is similar to…” box) notifying them that they can’t post in the category, but can select another one
