    Sorry to bump this but would rather that be the case than duplicate an existing issue.

    I have just come across this bug as well - our scenario is:
    • vBulletin 4.1.5pl1 (not latest pl, but as I understand it the issue is not fixed in latest patch level 4.1.6)
    • Section hierarchy is: Home > Section1
    • Usergroup FooU has 'create content' CMS perms set for Section1
    • Usergroup FooU has 'can publish' CMS perms set for Section1
    • Usergroup FooU has NO 'create content' CMS perms set for Home
    • Usergroup FooU has NO 'can publish' CMS perms set for Home

    Result is users in FooU usergroup cannot promote posts to articles from the forum into Section1. I would suggest this is a bug and not a feature, setting an editorial usergroup such as FooU to have editorial control over Section1 should allow that usergroup to promote articles into Section1 from the forum without FooU needing to have full editorial control over the Home parent section.

    cf: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-8834

    We'll have to wait for v5 and pay to get get what should have been in v4 from the beginning. I keep saying this but I don't believe anyone on the development team actually runs a news content driven site so they don't know the basic needs of a real CMS.

    If you do not give the usergroup the permissions above to the homepage, but they have permissions to other sections of the CMS, they still see the "Promote to Article" link but get an error message. Usergroups should be able to promote blogs to the sections that they do have the proper permissions for.

    At the very least usergroups should not see the "Promote to Article" link if they do not have permissions to promote. Anyone have a solution or workaround for this? Does the promote functionality code have to be removed?

    Thanks.
    Thanks. zoDesigns.com too.

    Indeed, this permission won't properly

    Indeed, this permission won't properly and not accurate.

    If we turn FrontPage of CMS to off, though a usergroup can't publish and getting only permission error or other like one without all(Create, Editor, Publish) ON.
    Without gathering the contents at HOME Section or each TOP Section, we could publish because there is from its nested section, so this permission should be separate per section.

    Yeah.... that just makes too much sense. I guess I'll trek on over to Jira and post as a feature... sigh... if only there was a PROMOTE TO TRACKER feature here!

    There is no notification sent when an article is published.

    It does seem like "can create content" = yes and "can publish" = no, that it should mean it goes into moderation.
    im doing this also. but how the moderators or who ever have the access to publish being notify that there were new article that need to vet thru and publish?
    thanks

    Yes, and I already have a usergroup set up for "Editors" and would recommend that as well.

    Apparently it is a bug: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-8834

    I apologize for being so brash.

    Have you tried setting 'Can Publish' to No?

    Makes absolutely no sense... did anyone from vb actually consult sites that manage content? Let's just allow all the users to publish news on their home page without any reviews. Another genius vb move.
