Thank you very much, appreciate such explanations very much ! I have also found that when building additional member groups it is quite important to assign the appropriate permissions.
This guide is still relevant for XF2 and should be required reading for new admins. Everyone's usergroups have different needs, but aside from "banned" it's hard to imagine a scenario where you wouldn't set Registered as the primary group.
Excellent resource. Coming from vBulletin, I was indeed misinterpreting the hierarchical/cumulative permissions structure in Xenforo. That meant effectively that I was inadvertently denying certain permissions to admins and moderators because they weren't also in the registered users group. Thank you.
Good to read! The first step to take is configure permissions and even if i had a good idea about groups, this resource was welcomed.
I was slowly getting there, but this info has fast tracked my understanding of perms, I really appreciate you adding this resource
Excellent information. Seems that most of us need to learn the basics before we have permission conflicts.
I am as guilty as sin.
Since reading this I have dropped groups, move all users and set the permissions up right.
thanks for taking the time to write this useful article.
Ahh, not how I did it over on MyBB. This is very interesting and also very helpful. Thank you. Time to get to work!
Very clear an concise, totally helped me straighten out my user permissions. Thanks for the guide Brogan!
I was struggling trying to set permissions for each group and the ones I created. This guide worked out like a charm, it explains the permissions very well. Thank you for the guide.
Excellent ! I think this guide must be included in the documentation.
Because many people use user group in the wrong way

Thanks for your help !
Although I already had a hunch that permissions worked this way, I needed to make sure that what I've been doing so far was correct. Thanks for the reassurance!
Thank you explaining everything with suitable examples. I was little-bit confused in xenforo forum permissions, but, Now I got a clear picture on group permissions.

Thanks again Brogan.
Thank you for writing this. It is a different way of doing it for sure, but after learning how it works, it's actually easier and better than other implementations I've seen. So again, thank you Brogan for taking the time to educate me.
Very useful
Thanks Brogan this really helped me sort out the permissions and helps make it much easier to understand and implement on a multi-usergroup forum, espcially when you have a number of forums that are restricted to certain groups or hidden from groups.
A+ resource.
Very helpful and will save me a lot of problems in the future as I had my permissions set up wrong!
An excellent explanation.
I never realized I did not have these set right until reading this guide.

I have all my ducks in a row now!
Awesome guide, Paul. Especially the new real-world example of why this should be the only way to set up your permissions.
Very helpful in assisting with the creation of user groups and secondary user groups.
