    Hi,

    Is there a way to save my 4 "User Group Permissions" as a file so I can upload the set so I can let people view it to see if I modified the groups right?

    Example

    So it shows like a spreadsheet with like this in it.

    General Permissions

    .............................................................registered.......admin..........mods
    View........................................................allow...........not set........not set
    View node...............................................allow...........not set........not set
    View user profiles...................................allow...........not set........not set
    View user profiles...................................allow...........not set........not set
    Search.....................................................allow...........not set........not set
    Edit custom title....................................not set...........allow.........not set
    Edit signature.........................................allow...........not set........not set
    Follow message moderation rules.........allow...........not set........not set
    Bypass flood check................................not set...........allow.........not set

    Hard-delete thread by anyone..............not set..........not set.........allow
    Delete thread by anyone.......................not set..........not set.........allow

    There are add-ons for most browsers that allow you to take a screenshot of the full webpage.

    These are my permissions, Made it so unregistered get the least permissions and then members then moderating then administrative, but administratives would be a member of the moderating and registered group, and a moderating group would be a member of the members group but not the administrative group.

    Does the permissions look right Brogan, none of the permissions are the same are they for the admin, mod or members group are they apart from the unregistered is simular to the members group.

    Looks good to me.

    You seem to have grasped the concept of multiple group membership, only setting additional permissions to Allow and leaving those already set in other groups to Not Set (No).

    So all the permissions look good and wont conflict with each other?

    How come the admin and members, some of the permissions were the same and I had to set the admin ones to not set (no) as they was allowed in members like for example - post new thread both was set to allow.

    You can have the same permission in two groups set to Allow, it won't cause a problem.
    It just makes it harder to manage.

    Let's say for example you have a permission set to Allow in two different groups and you decide you want to remove that permission for all members. You will have to change it in both groups.

    Whereas if you just have it set to Allow in the Registered user group and everyone has that group as their primary, then you only need to change it in that single group.

    The pre-installed group settings when you first install the software are irrelevant, you can just change them to suit.
    There is no concept of "default" settings.

    Will this work for XF 1.1?

    The permissions concept hasn't changed for 1.1.

    How come for example the members group and moderator and admin groups all have for post set to allow and not just the lowest set to allow?

    Example
    .............................................................registered.......admin..........mods
    View........................................................allow...........allow............allow

    Instead of
    .............................................................registered.......admin..........mods
    View........................................................allow...........not set........not set

    It's just the way they've been created as defaults.

    You can change them as you wish.

    My Administrative group has everything set to Not Set (No).
