    Hello guys! I would like to know if there is a quick or easy way to set permission to my forum.... Because I moved from ipb to xf and all my group permissions on my forum was restarted, so now I have to set permission to every group to each forum.... And this is taking me ages to do! Can't i just do like in IPB u set the permission for the forum in one page with all the gropus there?

    There is no option to update multiple groups at once. But you may be able to take advantage of inheritance by setting permissions for the category.

    Humm I see so what you're trying to is, If I set a 'x' permission on the category all the forums follwing the category will have the same permission?

    It does not, I've tried it myself and setting permissions on a category does not let me able to post in either one of the sections. Not even as administrator.

    You should use the analyze permissions tool to determine why the permissions are being seen a certain way. If I had to guess, I'd suspect that "never" has been used somewhere.
