I'm sure this is simple but I am struggling to find it. When creating or editing a forum there are permissions listed below. One of the selections is Use Defaults and is preselected. The problem is that the defaults for all of the groups requires all posts to be validated. I can go through all of the groups and manually edit the permissions but I would rather set the defaults for the groups. My problem is that I can't seem to locate this in the admin area. I would have thought that it would have been the Security >Usergroups but in that area there is no permission settings. Please help.

It's either set using the Permission Tree Editor, setting permissions on the forum/forumview page – or it's set globally in the Global Specific Permissions.

Thanks for the quick reply Chris. Seems I can't use the tree editor. Anything that I select then click on the edit button I get the following error:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@together4success.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.



Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Apache/1.3.41 Server at together4success.com Port 80



I checked the error log and the last error was:

Premature end of script headers: /home/together/public_html/data/edit_ping.php

Never mind, I started digging around and found that the file in question was code_editor.php so I checked the permissions and they were at 766. Changed it to 755 and now it is working. Not the quickest person on these forums but I am slowly but surely starting to pick up on things.

So the errors gone now :)? I'm a little confused as I can't see how code_editor.php relates. data/edit_ping.php perhaps though.

My fault again, think I need more sleep. I was using the site tree editor which did have the problem that I described and the fix did work for that. I will now go use the permission tree editor as you originally suggested, sorry for the confusion.

You might have just found the problem anyway, if data/edit_ping.php does have wrong permissions too.

No it seems the permission tree editor is working fine, I just misread your instructions and selected the wrong editor. As always thanks for all your help.
