XF 1.5 Prevent Tags in Certain Forums?

    Which permission is it exactly that controls this on nodes?

    I've set everything I can find about tags to No and users can still use it.

    A node permission being set to "No" would be overridden by a usergroup permission set to "Allow".

    To allow it generally, but prevent it in specific nodes, set the node permissions to "Revoke".

    Isn't that backwards? Isn't Never(which is what I mean't to say in my first post) the one that makes it so that usergroups can't overwrite it?

    Revoke is when you want a usergroup to overwrite it, no?

    Never overrides everything - so even if there is an explicit "Allow" somewhere it will still resolve to a deny.

    Revoke will revoke the permission from a user permission or user group permission but it can be overridden by an explicit "Allow" somewhere in the node permission.

    For example:

    Node 1:
    View Node:
    Registered: Revoke
    Administrative: Allow

    Result: Anyone in the Registered user group can't view. Anyone who is in Registered but also in Administrative can view.

    Node 2:
    View Node:
    Registered: Never
    Administrative: Allow

    Result: Anyone in the Registered user group, regardless of their other user groups, cannot view. The "Never" explicitly overrides any other permission.

    Anyway, back to the original point, if you have a node permission set to "Never" then certainly that should do the trick.

    Thanks.

    I found the problem though: Manage Tags by Anyone

    Its a super moderate ability, I made a bug report for it though.

    Yup!

    Thats what I was originally doing, but when I saw it did not work, its when I made this thread.

    I noticed that the super moderator ability was messing with it. I made a bug report for it :).
