I'm new to XF, when importing everything permissions did not get carried over, how do I set permissions, and is there anyway to do it MASS. I have staff forums, and I want only the staff members to see them, and VIP forums, and I want to mass set the usergroups, because after importing, VIP members have NO permissions, and I want to base VIP off of Regular members, except that they have access to VIP forums.
Because of the way Revoke works in xenForo you shouldn't use it to restrict a private forum. Instead you should use a special feature in xenForo called Private node. You will see the Private node checkbox when editing the permissions for a specific node. This basically inverts the permissions so that you can specify Allowed groups instead of Revoked groups. This is actually better for group management if you add more groups later.
I understand that, but I don't have anything set to private. My VIP members can not view ANY forums, which is why I was wondering if there was a MASS permission setup, as I do not want to go individually to each node and give VIP permission.
Is there anyway to create a new usergroup and have it based on registered members? I can't for the life of me figure out why registered members, admin, staff, ect, can see the forums, but VIP... http://i40.tinypic.com/2n9luo0.jpg
Actually, one of my Admins fixed it with one click... Apparently something got set wrong. I appreciate the offer though, I'll keep you in mind when I have more problems lol. After getting everything transferred over... So much work to do. GAHHHH lol.
