    Try this...

    I'm not sure, but I just tried altering permission on my forum to see if I could find the answer.

    Go to AdminCP --> Forums and Moderators --> Forum Permissions ... there you will find a bar with "Quick Forum Permission Set-up" and you can use that to select the forum you want to alter permissions on.

    Otherwise, I think you could edit in the permissions in the Forum Permissions below that. The above stated overrides anything you do in this second way I believe.

    Hope that helps.

    You could also do something similar under AdminCP --> Usergroups --> Usergroup Manager ... in here what you do would be overrided by anything noted in the "Quick Forum Permission Set-up" (if I'm reading it right). I just figured it might be worth checking.
