  • Default forum Access Masks?


    I have a situation where the default access mask setting for froum access is set to YES.

    The three options are YES, NO and DEFAULT.

    The default being the global for ????? something....user group forum?

    The problem is now that whenever I create a new forum, everyone who has the category access gets forum access also....

    I want to the default to mean NO...and I have to explicitly give access to each forum...

    Can someone help me to clarify and resolve this problem?

    The default is based on user group permissions. If you don't want to change the default user group permissions, then you'll need to set the permissions for each forum and user group manually.
