Generally our forum is 'all forums have posting access.. except a handful which are limited access' - nothing shocking.
But I started with 'registered' user group having permissions to post in the user groups, and then having secondary user groups with basically just 'no' in the user group definitions as the user group is just a container and doesn't grant new universal permissions.
But when setting up the forum permissions.. I'm finding I'm having to go into every user group and do 'revoke' for all the user groups in the special groups. This seems like the longer way.. as there are more groups without permissions than with.
Do people find it easier to go go in and add the posting right on a forum basis (user group doesn't have the posting right) or revoke it on every group (user group has the posting right)?
Obviously this weighs on what ratio of forums you have open vs closed.. but curious what others have done as a best practice?
Marking the forum private helps somewhat but its still hard to see things clearly.
I think I'm going to tag my user groups as permissions vs membership groups to help make things easier to see.
