Implementing permissions across multiple user groups

Implementing permissions across multiple user groups

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.
I've been doing it wrong for years... thanks Brogan!
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.
Concise and super clear. Thanks!
Thanks a lot for this information!
Cannot believe after running XF's boards for 2 years you finally helped me understand the permissions system. Looks like I'll be overhauling my usergroups setup this weekend.
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 !
Thank you for this.
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.
Thanks!
Very useful
Before I read through this I thought I was doing everything right. Little did I know...
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!
Very helpful in assisting with the creation of user groups and secondary user groups.
Great easy to follow - very clear
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.
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 resource.
Ahh, not how I did it over on MyBB. This is very interesting and also very helpful. Thank you. Time to get to work!
