    I have a confusing problem, which I will try and explain.

    We have a number of hidden forums that only certain customer can access.

    Customer A is allowed to access all the forums and hidden forum 1 because he is in group Y

    Now, I want to add a secondary group to user A so that we can see another forum without creating a brand new primary group.

    Group Y allows access to forum 1 but not 2
    Group X allows access to forum 2 but not 1

    So, when I want him to be able to access both special forums, I have group Y as his primary and X has his secondary but they both cancel each other out.

    Coming from VB 3 and then 4, this never happened there and I am trying to work out how to do it. I am sure the secondary groups should only give permissions, not take them away (or override the primary group?)
