I have activated the plugin and enabled topic protection for a forum but the ‘New topic form’ keeps showing. Why?

Check your theme for bbp_theme_before_topic_form and bbp_theme_after_topic_form actions. The plugin hooks this actions in order to capture the output and hide it.

Where can I find plugin support?
