I am testing the resource manager in my forum and a couple of things caught my attention. Issue 1: I have a node where members cannot view threads by others. Moderators and administrators can see all threads in that node. I posted a new resource The discussion thread is posted in this above mentioned node When I test user permissions, this member is able to see my thread. Member is neither a moderator nor an administrator. But the same member is unable to see other forum threads (posted by other members) in this very same node. So the permission works correctly for other forum threads. Second issue: Since I am still testing RM, members do not have permissions to view it. So it does not show up in navbar for them. But the new discussion thread is showing up in the sidebar for them. When they click on it, they are able to see the thread's content and from there go to the resource. [I tried turning off BD widget framework temporarily. So the sidebar widget is default widget (new posts)] Hope I have explained this properly. Is there any user permissions that I should be aware of for resource manager? Thanks IPF.
