How come when I make a forum not postable by registered members it effects the admin?

    Brogan or Jake will correct me if I'm wrong, lol, but I think this is right: make sure the admin permission is set to Allow and the others are set to Not Set (No), which will allow anyone in the admin group to inherit the Allow permission. The Never permission overrides everything else. http://xenforo.com/community/threads/understanding-permissions.5830/

    There is nothing whacky about it, permissions are cumulative and work exactly as designed.

    If a member is in both user groups, as they should be, then NEVER will do exactly as it says.

    Did you read the Permissions section of the Help manual I linked to earlier?

    I will just talking about my past experiences with forums.... My admin account is not in the same group as registered users though?

    If changes to the Registered user group are affecting your Admin account then I can guarantee it is in the Registered user group, either as Primary or Secondary.

    Either that or you haven't set the permissions correctly for the Administrative group.

    If you don't have your Admin account in the Registered user group as the Primary though, you don't have things set up correctly.

    Go to ACP -> Users -> Find User and enter your admin user name.

    The user screen will list all the user groups you are a member of.
