Hello, I hope this is the right section to post this. I am having a little trouble with permissions. Basically what I am trying to do is set it so the registered group can view the resources, and the attached images but can't download them. They need to reach the requirements on the forum to be promoted to a community group before they can download. I have no private resource sections, once you gain access after the promotion you can download from all. Testing permissions from a user in the registered group (using the ACP test permissions feature) they seem to be able to download the files despite having the no set in their usergroup and with the inherit on the resource categorizes. The test user has no additional usergroups. I have not used the never option anywhere for this. I did put allow for viewing both resources and image in the usergroup however. I have been using this resource to help me through the permission math: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/understanding-permissions.360/ Using the: Not Set (No) + Not Set (No) = Overall No for the resource manager seems to not have worked for me. Attached is a screenshot of the permissions for the resource manager and usergroup. Any help in sorting this would be appreciated, I am sure it's something in my permission settings, taking me a while to figure it all out. Too used to vBulletin settings.
