Security Confusion

    So I have a node (category) I don't want my users to see, and it has nodes (forums) below it I do want them to have access to assuming they have a direct link. I thought I had a pretty good understanding of the permissions system (http://xenforo.com/community/resources/understanding-permissions.360/) based off that article and several others, but it doesn't seem to be working how I'd expect.

    • Restricted Node - View: Revoke
      • Child Node - View: Allow
    It was my understanding that this Allow would override the Revoke above it.

    I also tried similar configuration with the Private Node settings...

    Is what I'm trying to accomplish possible?

    You need to be able to see the parent to see the child. Otherwise, it would overwrite.
