XF 2.2 Nodes and Permissions

Seems that still I can't understand how Nodes and Usergroup Permissions work. What I did so far is:
  1. Have set forum relevant permission to each usergroup and works.
  2. For some nodes, I want them to be visible (as Node), but I want to restrict access to Registered.
  3. I changed permissions to those specific nodes for Registered usegroup changing all from Inherit to No. Works.
  4. But now I realized that this special restriction is valid for all usergroups, including Admins
So, does it means that I'll change permission for all rest usergroups in that node and change Inherit to Yes??

This is how the restricted node appears:

Have seen that there is an option at the top of each node to make it Private. But this hides at all the node, something that I want to avoid. I want users without permission to see that there is eg a Support Forum even if they don't have permissions to use it.

Thank you

All admins and moderating should also be registered users too. Permissions are additive. Not sure if that helps. I didnt entirely follow what you were going for.

After some tests I found that need to set all usergroups. But I used a "trick" that saves my time. I moved all special forums to a category and then I set permissions for that category only. Inherit works fine for forums in that category, so, somehow, I solved my issue.

Could you share a bit more about the steps? I'm trying to restrict access to specific forums for specific members using a User Group format. When you created the new Category, can you share how and where you setup the restricted forums?

Thanks, i'm trying to figure this out... Am I doing it right?

It's personal preference really for the most part.

You can either set the node private and explicitly grant permission, or leave it as a regular node and revoke permission.

OK, last question then, am I understanding correctly :

1- I created a new User group, I called ACCESS RESTRICTED.

2- Then I went to Node Permissions, selected a forum node, then a User group, and set General/View node to NO.

3- From now on, any member I assign to this group (ACCESS RESTRICTED) as Secondary group will not be able to see that node?

Thanks!
