    Hi I upgraded from vbulletin 4.2.3 to latest vbulletin 5 2 weeks ago. Upgrade went ok but yesterday I received a pm off a member saying he didn't have access to a private forum I created. Only 3 members had access to this and they where added individually not as a group as there all in different user groups.

    I checked the access masks and the 3 users should have access so reset them incase it was a problem with the upgrade. But when I try to add them again in user then forum permission access mask I click yes for the required forum and save but whenever I go back the member is still showing the default permissions. I have checked and access mask is on in vbulletin options.

    Access masks are not in vB5. You would need to use usergroups to achieve this.

      So basically create a user group for these members? Just 1 of them is a moderator so would it work as a secondary user group?

        It can be a secondary usergroup as long as their primary usergroup has the setting "Allow Users to have Member Groups" set to Yes.

          OK thanks will try that. Will it just be in user group permissions?
