Main cat (no posts allowed in this area or set up to create discussions) 1st sub cat (allowed to create a resource and set to post a discussion thread) 2nd sub cat (allowed to create a resource and set to post a discussion thread)
The two sub cats are the ones that seem not to be creating the discussion threads when a resource is posted.
ok so looking at it closer it seems the only category that is allowing discussion creation is the only one that i have set for posts to be moderated.
Could this be why all other categories are not posting discussions as all other categories i have are not set to moderate creation. Apparently that's not the reason! Just went and change a cat that is not posting discussions to moderate posts still no go.
Ok so it seems that the forum area has to be visible to uses for the discussion thread to be posted!
This is how i had it set.
Everything is working in posting discussions when a resource is created BUT my users were getting confused with the resource area on the forum list and the resource area as in the resource manger.
SO i thought ok we will just have to have the discussions on the actual resource and not show the forum area. I figured that would be fine but seems not.
I have another problem with this. I want my users to use the resource manager to post sales ads reviews and other things. The problem being if i have to have the area showing on the forum list members will just create new threads there and the resource manager wont be used. Am i making sense?
