Fixed  node permissions do not get deleted when deleting forum-node


Well-known member
I created about 5 forum-nodes and one of the forums I have set to "private" and "visible to registered members only".

Then I deleted this "private" Forum because I did not want to have this Forum anymore.

Then about one week later, I created about 30 new forums.
And one out of those 30 new Forums inherited the permission-settings which I have set for a Forum which was actually deleted about a week ago.

So even I deleted that one specific "private" Forum, the "permission settings" were somehow still in the system. I assume the Node-ID-number was saving those settings but those settings were not deleted when I deleted those specific forum.

So the new Forum-Node took over old permission-settings of a Forum-Node which did not exist anymore.

Do you get what I am trying to say ?

Though I've not tested it, I understand. Could you state what version you are using? xf1.0.0 released? Or an older version?

Fixed now. Note that IDs should only be reused (like that) by MySQL if the server is restarted (which ideally shouldn't happen often).
