XF 1.3 Global Value Permission issue!

    I have a strange permission issue that is blocking everyone from the taigachat add on.

    I have no idea where this global value could possibly be set, and I don't remember changing anything.


    It's overriding the admin settings.

    Does anyone know where to look? I can't find anything under node, user, or usergroup permissions for a global value like that.

    just tagging you in case you've ever seen this issue. I literally woke up and taigachat could not be seen or used by anyone on the site.

    There's a bizarre global value overriding everything just for taigachat.

    There is the system-permissions option which is at admin.php?system-permissions

    But you should never be changing those, thats why there isn't a link to it. Otherwise I don't know enough about the chat addon to know if theres another option set they use somewhere.

    Wow, they were set under there. I honestly don't have a clue why they got set in the first place.

    Thank you very much for the quick response :)

    Just to update anyone else who lands on this. I was able to change my settings back with the link provided by @Slavik .

    Shortly after, the Global Value settings were automatically set to NEVER once again for Taigachat. This is either an exploit or a serious bug.

    It would be a problem with the addon.

    Thank you.

    I found the problem, and it was due to a broken custom command our dev didn't properly set.
    Anytime someone would use the command it would set that global value.
