I am trying to set my forum permissions up for certain groups, the majority of the individual forums are going to be the same with just a select view having restricted viewing access.

So I thought it would be easier to make them all the same and then manually tweak the selected few which are different.
I am doing this in the permissions tree editor and non of the tips seem to work

Tips said

Tip: hold ctrl or shift while clicking items to select several at once.

Need to change lots?
Change the permissions for the module, and all of the categories will 'inherit' that permission, except where you've further overridden it.

I have tried both of these, and I can`t seem to get it to do either.
Is there another way to do this without doing them all one by one

Thanks Mark

Sorry Chris

This is using ocPortal 9.06, firefox 20.0, and also on my older home desktop which does have windows xp on it.
I will try another browser.

Thanks Mark

**edit** Just to say this works in chrome so seems to be a firefox browser issue

No need to be sorry, it's just this is one of those rarer cases (nowadays) where the browser/OS is gonna make a difference. I'll take a look.

Nice one Chris, that's good to hear.

I also have noticed another slight observation what I think is browser related to firefox aswell, as when in the WYSIWYG editor, when you right click to paste something the browser loads the editors box of options up (which it should), but then also firefox`s options over the top of this making it very hard to gain access to the editors option list underneath.

While I was trying in Chrome I noticed that this behaves differently and does not load the browser options at all while hovering over the content area.
This again could be related to my older OS at home and the browser so maybe other users are not experiencing this I don`t know

Thanks Mark

If it was a huge long list of options in Firefox, I just had that problem – a bug in Firebug. Otherwise, this'd be an issue within ckeditor and covered when we next do an upgrade for it (we don't track all issues on there or upgrade each time, as we have some customisation on it – we tend to jump up occasionally).
