XF 1.5 Overlapping permissions

    Hello, I have a question about setting up users with overlapping permission groups.

    I have a gaming community forum that is also related to guilds in various games. I have permissions set up to separate guild members from non-guild community members, as their access may not always be mutually inclusive. I want to set up permissions so that if I add a user to two groups, the user inherits the highest set of permissions from both groups.

    For example:

    A Guild Member cannot post a new thread to Gaming News & Blogs

    A Publisher can post a new thread to Gaming News & Blogs

    A Guild Member can create a new thread in Guild Discussion

    A Publisher cannot post a new thread in Guild Discussion.

    I want the permissions set up so that if I add a user to both groups, they can post in both Gaming News & Blogs and Guild Discussion.

    Permissions are cumulative and the final permission set is determined by all of the user groups a member is in.

    Node specific permissions can be defined on a per node/user group basis.

    So you would revoke or allow permissions as required.

    This update explains how to allow one particular group to post threads in a specific forum: https://xenforo.com/community/resou...-multiple-user-groups.358/update?update=17559
