This is something that still bugs me as overly complicated about the way XF permission works. I have several private categories with private subforum beneath them. I have some custom usergroups that can access all/part of these forums. On top of that, I have individuals members from the registered usergroup that I need to grant access to some of these forums. PRIVATE CATEGORY ----Private forum A ----Private forum B ----Private forum C ---- 1) When I want a user to use forum B, I would grant view permission to the PRIVATE CATEGORY. This would allow the user to see forum A, B, C, etc. Now, I will need to go into Node permission and disallow view permission for Forum A, C, etc. This result in the user only be able to see forum B. Imagine having 2 dozens or more private forums underneath the PRIVATE CATEGORY. It is very tiring to set it to each members. Did I approach this correctly? is there a better way to allow some users access to a few private forum without going through this long check list?
