Imported from vb 3.8.7 - users cannot see forums

    the migrated super moderators cannot see old forums. They see only the new ones. Everyone has the General Permissions set to NO.

    I had to go in and reset them all as explicit users. The supermoderators group seemed fine, there's another super moderator group imported from VB.

    I'm just wondering if this is supposed to act this way or not and what's a fast global fix?

    Probably this:

    Basically you need to redo your private forum permissions the XenForo way:

    I got that it would be problematic with private forums staff only forums, but the regular forums that were available to everyone and had little customized permissions. The basic ones that were from VB weren't visible at all.
