    Hey :)

    So, say I have two sub forums inside a parent forum and I don't want members posting on the parent forum, but I do want them to be able to post in the 2 sub forums, how would I configure the permissions for that to be possible?

    With the permissions set to "inherit" for members in the sub forum, I am concerned that if I turn off the ability to post in the parent forum, they will "inherit" this permission and not be able to post in the sub forums.

    It will work. You can override permissions in the child forum by explicitly setting them. So the parent has explicit revoke and the child has explicit allow.

    Ok, so I need to go thru each usergroup in the Parent forum and set "Post new thread:" and "Post replies:" as "Revoke" then I need to go to each of the 2 sub forums > each usergroup and set those two settings as "Allow"?
