  • I lost track of all kinds of permissions...

    Hello,

    Last week I upgraded from vBulletin 3.7.6 to 3.7.1 and I got a notice about updated/changed permissions in the admincp. A few days after the upgrade I got mails from almost all moderators that they are not able to post or edit (not even their own posts).

    I've checked the permissions everywhere in the admincp, but I lost track of the permission completely. I really do not know anymore which permissions are overriding other permissions, and where you can set what kind of permissions.

    For example I want to give my usergroup "Employees" permissions to edit posts of other too. But for some reason I cannot do this anymore without giving those users super moderator permissions. Those employees are not moderators so they do not to have all other permissions that moderators have...

    Can I read somewhere where to set which permissions and which permissions override other permissions?

    Best regards,
    Raymond

      There you can for example not set permission to edit other's posts, only "Can Edit Own Posts". Those permission are very low level permissions... no moderator permissions there!

        Okay, well for mod permissions, you can do this forum by forum as you wish at AdminCp > UserGroups > Forum Permissions. then 'edit' the usergroup for each forum. hope this helps.

          Those permission listed there are the same "low level" permissions, so only "Can Edit Own Posts" is available there...

            I'm having similar issues with 3.7.0 (upgraded from 3.6.x):

              I finally found out the real problem, so I was able to fix it! For some reason during the upgrade my custom usergroups were configured to not allow additional usergroups to overwrite settings!

              Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> {Select Usergroup} -> Edit Usergroup -> Allow Users to have Member Groups -> Yes

              Thanks,
              Raymond

                In my case, there seemed to be an issue with vBSEO until I rebuilt the bitfields:
