Permissions/ Nodes Problem?

    Sorry if this is novice report but I'm quite new to the software. My forums over at (prosnd.com) are having a few issues which are specified below.

    1. Users on my forum are having trouble viewing certain nodes. (denied permission).

    I have checked the node settings and the user permissions. The node is available to all groups and the users are present in the correct group.

    2. I am having trouble posting in certain nodes with restricted settings.

    The annoucements section of the forum is set to admin only. Being an admin this shouldn't be a problem but I receive this message "(You have insufficient privileges to post here.)" I have checked the section and made sure I have sufficient permissions but no luck :(

    I'm slightly worried at the sporadic nature of these problems. Some users can access the forums fine and others are plagued by problems.

    Any help would be great!

    Thank you

    Go through your user groups and make sure you're not using the "never" permission anywhere.

    You're not the oly one - I find the permissions system quite difficult too.

    Couple of things to check and if it's not these one of the clever people will help you.

    1. Check that a user having problems has no RED selection in their usergroup permission for this activity.
    The RED (Never) overrides everything else.

    2. For yourself, are you a member of any other usergroup apart from admin?
    That can set up the restriction on you.
