What permissions are inherited by OCP when you install it? ( with an IPB forum)

Because IPB has multiple layers of permissions, and i haven't quite figured out yet which permissions are inherited..


I have been toying a bit with permissions, but i found the tree editor in OCP working faster to get the desired result.

:D  Dont shoot the messenger!!  :D

ocPortal considers the member to be in the primary group. Now that you point it out, there's no real reason (as far as I know) that we couldn't do secondary groups too - except we don't have an IPB licence so are somewhat out of the loop with their changes. Permission masks are not taken into account.

ocPortal doesn't inherit permissions as such, but it will detect groups it considers 'super moderators' and 'super administrators', and set up permissions accordingly.

A group is considered 'super moderator' if IPB says so, and hence ocPortal would install to give extra permissions to that group by default. A group is considered 'super administrator' if it can access the IPB admin control panel, and for ocPortal this means the group has full permissions (and you can't edit the permissions).

All group permissions may be edited in ocPortal - with that one exception of 'super administrators'.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Okay, so now i know how to fiddle around to get things done.
This makes it more easy for me to do some setup on the usergroups and users.
