  • Usergroup permissions not inheriting from "Home" channel

    I am not new to VB, having developed countless products for both 3 and 4, but this is my first foray into 5. We have a client site where they had a botched upgrade from 4 to 5 (Or possibly multiples). We came in and got everything functioning again, but registered users are unable to post any new content without us doing the following:

    The channel layout:
        All of the subforums
    If we set the permissions for Registered Users to be able to post new topics on the Home channel and then set "Forum" to inherit from "Home" and all of the subforums to inherit from "Forum", users are NOT able to post. If, however, we set the "Forum" channel to have custom permissions and not inherit from "Home", things begin working as expected. The subforums are inheriting from "Forum" without issue, but "Forum" is not inheriting from "Home". Any ideas / tips would be appreciated because I'm not sure what the problemc ould be.
