Hi,

Did I do this right, I want it so I can post in all my forums, so I goto "Edit User 1" and put him as "User Group : Adminastrive" and "Secondary User Group : Moderating" then untick "Registered" and goto "Nodes" and make it so Registered user cannot make new threads in forum 1.

I should untick "Registered" right as if I tick it on 2nd user group it wont let me post in forum 1.

Nope.

Permissions are cumulative so you don't need to remove members from groups.
Just add them to groups with the additional permissions you want them to have.

All users should have the Registered user group as their primary.

Just revoke/allow permissions for specific groups if you want to set node specific permissions.

See the help manual for more:

Set the node permissions for Registered to Revoke and for Administrative and Moderating to Allow.

It does work as I use that set-up on my forum.

User Groups
Registered: Post new thread - Allow
Administrative: Post new thread - Not Set (No)

Node
Registered: Post new thread - Revoke
Administrative: Post new thread - Allow

See what was wrong I had adminastrive in node all set to inherit - does new thread need setting to allow or all of them like post reply etc?

In your case, for the node specific permissions, whichever permissions you revoke for the Registered group, you will have to Allow for the Administrative and Moderating groups.

So if you don't want normal users to be able to reply then revoke that and allow it for the other groups.

I only disallowed new threads (registered) on the node but it wont let me post replies after I click allow on adminastrive

Check your permissions again.
The same concept applies to every permission so if you can post a new thread then you can reply.

Would it be easier to set usergroup to adminastrive and 2nd user group to mod and untick registered as dont admins get full permissions?

If you want to follow best practices, then no.

The Administrative user group only receives the permissions you grant it.

I'm not sure how else I can make it any clearer other than what I posted in post #6.
Or what is in the help manual documents.

Just repeat what you did for Post new thread for any other permissions.
