    XF 1.5 Permission Problems in Forums

    I really tried to pay attention to the permissions discussions and thought I understood, but apparently not. I think I falsely assumed that if I provided Registered user group with permissions in the category, then all I would have to do is click the Inherit button at the top for each individual...

    XF 1.5 Convert vB Usergroups to xF User Groups

    I am converting my vBulletin 3.8 forum to xenForo 1.5 this weekend. I'm a little concerned about how my current usergroups will be transitioned to the xF way of doing groups. I use the usergroups Administrators, Moderators and Pro Members as primary usergroups. All other usergroups are...

    Permissions questions on install

    I currently host a phpbb3.1x forum on my Linux server config with very restrictive permissions - I saw in the install notes where it says to set to 2 directories to 0777 - this is world writable and HIGHLY INSECURE. Is this actually required or is it just a line in the documentation to prevent...

    XF 1.5 User Permissions Conflict?

    I'll try to make this as brief as possible. After setting User group permissions, I (admin) am now defaulted to registered user, and included in ALL user groups under secondary at the same time. None of the user group permission settings are set to "Never/red". When I attempt to edit myself...

    XF 1.5 Viewing Smiles for Some Users shows Broken Images

    Users with usergroup "Registered" can't view certain smileys - specifically the custom smileys that have been added. It would seem that XF sees these as "Attachments"? When trying to view the smileys in question as a mod or admin, the images display properly, but when viewed as registered user...

    What does "Depends on Permission ID" do and when should it be used?

    The setting "depends on permission ID" is a setting in the permission definitions. So lets take this example: So I already saw what it does not seem to do: The permission interface does not show in any way that the one permission depends on another one. It does not show a warning or...

    Who has viewed a thread

    Apologies if this is on the wrong board. I've searched and searched but have not found a mod that allows mods to see who has read a thread. There was one on vB that was perfect, based on group permissions. Is there something like that for XF? I see there are a couple similar mods offered...
