Permissions...."Groundhog Day"
« on: March 15, 2014, 12:53:40 am »
Hi there,
I am new here and learning my way through setting up my new forum. I figured out the boards and categories and how to make someone a Moderator. I read the "Safeguard your forum" carefully and want to do things right. ;-)
I set the permissions for the different levels but each time I log back in they are reset back to higher number permissions. I have done it FOUR times now and just now it's reverted back. I click "Save" when I'm done on that page so I don't know where I went wrong.
I searched in the help topics here but didn't see this question or somehow missed it, if it exists already.

Thanks!
MJ

I haven't figured out why this keeps resetting to the defaults. I forgot to mention in the OP that I'm not changing the permissions in other places. I would understand the numbers changing in that case. It seems like it's not saving the edits although I'm not getting an error message when I save them.
I'll keep trying to figure it out.
Thanks,
MJ

You are just changing them under Admin -> Permisisons right? and not saving?

Hi there,
I took some screen shots. I start at the "Permissions" page, click modify, check/uncheck boxes (as desired) and click "Save" at the bottom.
However, when I logout (to make sure it looks right for non-Administrators) and log back in, the permission "counts" are back to higher numbers again.

Thanks for responding!

Hi again,
Please DISREGARD. I'm going to set it for deletion as I can't figure out the headers either. It does some kind of weird formatting when I input the code.
Thanks anyway, though.
MJ
