  • user permission probleme

    hey guys. i am sorry if i am asking this questions second time. though it seems like no one could help me there. i purchased vb few nights ago, installed it and everything went smooth. after that i imported my phpbb database using impex and that went smooth as well. how ever, after updateing the counters and all those post import things, when i login to the board with one of those imported usernames, it is giving me the following message.

    HTML Code:
    sec245, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account
    </OL>i do have about 600 users, so could you guys instruct me on whats the probleme here and how would I fix it?
    oh, not to forget, i did sit the permession on all the forums, to view, read and post for all registered users.

    thanks in advance.

          After you finished the import did you have two types of usergoups - Default and Custom? If you have Custom then by deleting each one at a time the users in that custom group will be transferred to Registered Users in the Default group. Then click on the 'Go' button alongside each usergroup to edit that group and check the permissions.

              Admin CP > Usergroups > Usergroup Manager.

              You then get a page that will show 1 or 2 boxes. The first will be 'Default Usergroups', as in my attachment in my last post. Do you also have another box under that with the title 'Custom Usergroups', again as in my previous attachment.

              During import users will usually be placed in various categories in the 'Custom Usergroups' box. By deleting each usergroup in the 'Custom Usergroups' box they will be automatically moved to 'Registered Users' in the 'Default Usergroups' box, except admin and moderators who will be moved to those similar groups in 'Default Usergroups'.

              You will then have only the 1 'Default Usergroups' box. Click the 'Go' button along side each group to access the menu to set permissions for that group.

                ok i am home now. let me chek it out so basicly if i do have a custom box, that means i have to delete it which will lead to all users moving to the defult box...
