I have a forum in which people with a certain role can post and edit, and people with another role cannot post, nor edit (but they can on another forum).
I came to that setup with advanced_forum and forum_access.
When some people with the second role read the forum, they have no permission to reply to posts, but the button to post a reply is present (and broken).
So here's a little patch that consider permissions handled by forum_access and eventually hide the button.

Sorry, here's a slightly better revision, with some more checks.

Thanks for the patch.

Can you do the same thing without this function?


Reason being that in Drupal by convention functions with names beginning with an _ should be considered private, and could therefore change (or disappear) without warning.
