Usergroup cant edit post



I have set up the time limit to edit a post for a separated Usergroup to unlimited in "Forum Permissions". But after i replied and try a second later to edit the post i get this.

And, am i right that i just have to set Userrights to a Category and the childs can be inherit?


User is in Group Supp2 (example group)
User Group Permissions - Supp2 (example group) - Forum Permissions - Time limit on editing/deleting own posts (minutes): Unlimited
Node Permissions - Admin & Supporter Category - Supp2 (example group) - Forum Permissions: Unlimited
Still can´t edit his own post. Edit post by self - set in both to allow. This Usermanagment scares me ;)

Have you tried rebuilding caches, such as permissions and such?
When I upgraded to BETA 6, one of the admins couldn't see the moderation panel, even though both the Admin usergroup, moderaton and the Administrator group all had the proper settings so he could see it. I simply just went in, hit save and it worked just fine.


I imported them from vb and rebuild all. but i have serious problems with the Userrights.
Some users that I have added to a group for an intern Forum, can see this, some of them cant, only if i update this Usergroup again they also can see this Forum, what sounds weird to me.

Another Problem. I just moved a User from this Test Group into his old Group.
All other Users in this Group can still see the intern Forum, but this single User, i just moved a minute ago is not able to see the intern Board anymore.
I dont know if i am to stupid for this or if there is a serious problem in there.

Ok i found out what the problem is, in my board. Dont know if others have the same.
After i moved the User back to his old Group i had to rebuild the users cache (that cant be the normal way)
If i am testing the permission of that User, i am just able to edit new posts but not the old ones
It would be nice if one of the responsible ones could take a look to this. Maybe also on my board

If you send me admin CP access, I can look into the first issue. (I need to know the name of the user with the issue.)

If you send me FTP access as well, I can look into the permission issues you brought up at the end. I also need to know specific users with problems.


Hmm i have setup a Testboard and tested exactly the same as i did it in my live board. On the Testboard all worked fine. Maybe it has to do with the importer? Or it is maybe any Addon? I don´t know.


I thought so. To be honest i really have no clue what the problem is. Its all ok at the testforum but as soon as i do the same in my liveboard it does only work if i rebuild the users cache. Weird.
Well just leave me a "pm" as soon as u got a moment to take a look. Thanks Mike
