Quick Permission Question

Post by Seraphic »

So which permission setting is the "best" to use?
I mean you have three to choose from. :?:

1. User (set permissions based on user)
2. Group
3. Forum

I mean should you set group and forum to use the same settings or just one or the other?

Not to offend, but asking that question indicates you have a lot of research to do on permissions. Start with this:

Or maybe it is because the permission system in phpbb3 is confusing as hell?
I found the permission system in phpbb2 a lot easier to work with.
But maybe that is just me.

No, not just you. It is more complicated because it is more powerful and granular.
