Private forum blocks its usergroup

    This is very important because this private forum is for my moderators and I to discuss the whole community.

    I set Category X and Forum X inside it, to PRIVATE.

    There is a usergroup xxx to match.
    Usergroup xxx has general permissions to view / post in forums etc which they have no problem doing elsewhere.

    On the Node Tree I selected the blue PERMISSIONS button for this forum.
    As well as setting it to Private I selected usergroup xxx and selected GREEN permissions to view, post, edit their posts as normal.

    This all worked OK some time ago.
    The forum X has not been used for a while.

    Recently I moved both the Category X and the Forum X away from root under another Category.

    Members of usergroup xxx told me they can no longer access Forum X.
    I logged in as one of them and I can see Category X but not Forum X inside it.

    I moved both the Category X and the Forum X back to root on the node tree.
    They still cannot access the forum!

    Jake thank you. I have checked all the usergroups showing Bold under Permissions for that forum. Far as I can see all are either showing grey Inherit or green Allow.
    I have added each member in the relevant usergroup individually. This seems to work but it's a pain as I have to click every Allowed permission under every member separately! Plus I move a member to that group only rarely so by next time I'll probably forget.

    I wish permissions were simpler. I get sick of all those coloured bars!
