XF 1.5 Permissions Question

#1
Just so I have my head wrapped around the permissions hierarchy...

Will the usergroup permissions trump the resource category permissions?

Are the usergroup permissions always going to trump any other permissions?

Regards,

Yeah... I saw that thread, but still got confused.

So to confirm... if I choose Inherit for a usergroup in the Resources Category, it will inherit their permissions set in the usergroup permissions?

Specifically, it will inherit whatever the "parent" permissions is. As resource categories (and forums) are organized in a tree, that means that a second level category would inherit the top level category's permissions. At the top level, they will inherit from the group permissions.
