Solved Permissions Problem - All Members now cannot Write or Reply to Topics

Post by nickinstick on November 23rd 2016, 12:21 am

Technical Details


Forum version : #phpBB2
Position : Administrator
Concerned browser(s) : Internet Explorer
Who the problem concerns : All members
Forum link : http://swmdclub.forumotion.co.uk

Description of problem

All members bar Admin see the following:
Permissions in this forum:
You cannot post new topics in this forum
You cannot reply to topics in this forum
We may have had some sabotage from a prior Admin/Mod, but am unsure. I'm new to this role but have spent hours on the Admin Panel and tried setting up a User Group for Members etc to no avail. Would really appreciate some expert advice. Thanks Nick

Edit: On Forum Permissions Control the Presets for Write topics or messagesis Blank. I've tried changing to Members and Saving but this doesn't hold, it reverts to Blank. Is this related?? Embarassed

AP > General > Forum > Categories & Forums
Are you setting the permissions when you create a new forum or editing an old one? That is where you set them. Also make sure that you are in advanced permissions by clicking the link at the bottom of the each permissions page.

Thanks for your reply.

I am editing an existing Forum or to be precise the problem is on an existing forum that's been running for several months without this issue. Yes have been checking Positions in the Advanced setting as you advise. From my perspective Permissions all look good.

I'm at a loss, I've followed the above and in fact it was already in place.

Have screen printed the relevant pages displaying permissions in case you guys can see the issue. I would really appreciate any advice you can offer.

The first screen print was how it was and the 'Write Topics or Messages' was Blank. You will see below that I have amended this to read Members. I have done that and logged back in on my personal profile Nickinstick and I still see I cannot write or reply to topics etc, the same for everyone on the forum.

Thanks Nick

Thanks
