However, it of course does have a permissions system and management, although it's management panel was written more hastily and is currently being redone.

Let's not get started on Deluxe Portal - we have a member here who had that and after switching from it to stop getting load averages in alarming ranges.

Yes, SMF has the ability to put a member into more than one member group.  There is the "primary group" and then "additional groups."

The difference in fonts is only a function of the Safari browser, (which is what David uses.) as far as I know.  I believe they are the same normally.

Will SMF include the ability to manually assign people to user levels, rather than having to do it based on number of posts?

[Unknown]

YaBB SE even allowed you to assign people to groups, what do you mean?

Oh I know you could assign people to groups, but the user level (Newbie, Junior Member, etc) seems only to work with post count, as far as I can tell.
I'd like the ability to use the Newbie field for other purposes than how many posts someone has made.

I think in this case you'd have to just create another membergroup called Newbie which isn't post based and has the same permissions as the other one. The reason is if you asign them to newbie they'll just get unasigned if they have more posts than that. Just have one newbie that is post based and one that is not and give them same name, permissions etc. Your members would be none the wiser
I'm only a half geek really...

I think you'll find the membergroup/postgroup system in SMF more to your liking.

Because of the amazing support system.  They really are top notch.

Could you explain the difference between Primary groups and Additional groups?

[Unknown]

The primary group is the main, displayed group.  In my case, my primary group is "Lead Developer."  Any given member can only be in one primary group.

I, however, am also in other groups.  These include "Project Manager" (administrator) and "Team Member."  The groups are "additional groups" because they are in addition to my primary group.  They are not displayed, and are there only for permissions.

Is it possible to display all of the groups?  I use things like "Reviewed Vendor" and "Site Owner" to let users know things about other users.  It would be beneficial to have a toggle option to enable listing all of the groups to which a member belongs.

I'm guessing that "Simple Machines Hero" is your title, correct?

[Unknown]

That is my post group.  I have no title.
