Solved Permission for groups

Post by Nerdiator on March 19th 2013, 5:36 pm

Hello

I have 3 subforums. Each subforum is for a specific group. How do i set the permissions so that group A can only see and edit stuff in subforum A. without being able to see or change anything in B and C?

Thanks already

All I can see is "All, Members, Admin and Moderators"
Not group A, B and C

You will need to create these groups.
Users & groups>Group Administration.
Create the groups there.
