I can't set permissions for a user or a group
« on: December 06, 2005, 05:06:03 AM »
Quiet a few people were confused when they go to edit user or user group's permissions and see "blank" table without any options (see first attachment)

The answer is simple:
Edit a category and set needed permissions to "Private"
Then, when you edit user or group's permissions, you should be able set the options (see second attachment)

It's worth to mention, that user/group permissions can only be set for categories, that means that at least one category must exist.

make a copy from the admin folder and name it mod then delete all Navigationentries which the Mod is not allowed to use in the index.php...

Not a good Solution but it seems that it works and please save your orginal Admin Folder with a .htaccess...

Good speed! (o:

a little question relating to the example of the 2nd picture (when permissions are activated):

 :?: if a user is not allowed to view a category, can he access to a sub-category ? yes , no, maybe ???
in the example, the category test1.1.1 is a subcategory of test1.1.
the user is not allowed to view test1.1 (the category will not be shown) but he is allowed to view test1.1.1, the category should be shown...

 :arrow: How can he access to test1.1.1 category? and where will the category be displayed since the user cannot see the mother category?

Regards.

No. If parent category not accessible, there are no permissions metter for subcategories - they are not accessible as well.

I dont think neither of your questions is related to this topic. You'd better start a new topic in MODs request forum (I guess that also answeres your questions - there is no such features exists)

My concern is why isnt validating images part of the permissions and how can i modify it so that validating is.

For example if i want user group x and y to be able to upload without need of validation but user group z does need to be validated.

Right now ALL images must be validated by admin "user level 9"

Any suggestions on this?

Set direct upload to private and update your groups.

So I create a group of registered people.
I gave them the permission to download pictures to some category without admin's "yes"

But at the same time I want my guests to download pictures but with my "yes"

If I made this category "private" rights, it'll be Ok or I should do smth?

I am trying to set up a user attached to a user group whereby I can specify one or two categories only for them speciifically. This will be for private, internal reference, therefore I do not want to remove this category from "registered user" and so public view.  I have gone to edit category and tried all types of config across permissions and this does not seem possible to do.  A private user therefore must see all categories available to registered users as well to prevent removing access to the registered users of a particual category by making it "private".  Is there some other way around this?
