Permissions Confusing

    So...

    I have two forums in a category. In one of the forum I was only administrators to be able to make new posts in this section. How do I go about achieving this?

    I read all the documentation available on permissions and I thought I understood it but when I went ahead to solve the problem, I did not get the result I wanted.

    Thanks for the help.

    Revoke the post new thread permission for the Registered group and Allow it for the Administrative group.

    Ahh ok. Thank you. But why revoke and not Never?

    Never overrides that permission everywhere for that usergroup.
    Revoke just sets it to no (removes it) for that node.

    (Brogan is perfect as always but permissions are a bit challenging and understanding is eased by reading different word formations on same point.)

    Yes thats right. The resource Brogan linked to is very useful.
