I cannot add item to my auction from the front end.

I get the new button but when I fill out the form and hit "save and close" I get a new form with all the fields empty. I hit cancel and go to the auction and the item is not there.

I'm sure it has something to do with my permissions.

I've set to "allowed" create, edit, and edit state in the items options. And the same in the categories options.

The documentation says to set edit to "allowed" in the component too. Where do I set that?

Or is there something else I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for your help!

Changing the permissions is required if you want to allow other Joomla users on your site to create auction items from the front end. If you only want admins to create, you should not need to adjust permissions.
The permissions are located in components->BF Auction Plus
Press the options button (top right)
Click the permissions tab

Your issue could also be a SEF problem. In the SEO settings in your global configuration, do you have these two set to yes or no?
Search Engine Friendly URLs
Use URL rewriting

Is this site hosted on a Linux server, and do you have a .htaccess file?

Could also be a javascript issue. Do you get an error messages when viewing via firefox? Look in tools->web developer->browser console.
