Solved Permissions Greyed Out

Post by Rilee on May 15th 2011, 10:05 pm

I have followed these steps for permissions - ACP=>General Tab=>Forum=>Categories and forums=>Choose forum=>Permissions=>Tick off who you don't want to view the forum,and tick the groups you want to view the forum=>Save

I have made a new user-group. To that group I want to add members that are unruly and cannot behave in that part of the forum.

When I go to uncheck that group that I just created to not be able to read/view it's greyed out and uncheckable.

I unchecked all boxes but when I check members that special new user group box automatically becomes checked and greyed out.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

yep that will happen and to do what you saying then you will have to follow all these steps has a student lol.

1)create a auto subscribed group(where all your sites members are in,group name example:community)

2)keep all your forums hidden from all the users which arent in the "community"

3)create another group( example:banned)

4)then while sorting out permissions for the community group check allow access on all the forums.

5)if you want to shift any member to the banned group then remove that member from the community group and for banned group permissions ONLY GIVE PERMISSIONS TO VIEW AND WRITE IN THE BANNED FORUM OR WHATEVER FORUM YOU WANT THEM TO BE ABLE TO VIEW.

Hope you Get these steps and hope this helps

Thank You kamz89. I have 13,000+ members. Do I need to add each member to the community 1 by 1?
