Confused about member groups
« on: January 20, 2009, 10:54:51 AM »
Heya everyone,

I basically just started using SMF, it looks great, I'm just having a small problem.

I want members to register and automatically go into a group where they can only see one forum, and I have to move them into another group for them to be able to see every forum.

Right now people just seem to be in a post based group... I've even cnaged this post group permission in order to see one forum, but all my mebers feedback is that they can see everything... hmm.

Hey Cuda, welcome to SMF :D

SMF Online Manual: Membergroups

Post based are IN ADDITION to the regular members membergroup, so for each of those boards, you may have to uncheck regular members, however, I don't know for sure if that will work.

You could ask the mod author to upgrade this too: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=819
