That is certainly how it looks anyway and that would be a nightmare, hence my comment, I am sure I am wrong.

Nope. Everyone who registers automatically goes into the registered users group and has normal access rights that that group has. But you can tweak it in group forum permissions so for instance they can post polls in certain forums, stuff like that.
How do you set up a new Administrator ???

Put the person into the admin group.
Manage groups > administrators> put the persons name in the box at the bottom>submit.

That is exactly what you NOT need to do. Newly registered users are automatically added to the "Registered Users" usergroup (or "Unapproved Users", if not yet activated). Set the permissions for this group and you are done.

I suggest you read the Quick Start Guide section on Permissions.

I suggest you start with a fresh installation. Firefox should not make any problems.

Is he member of a group that has admin permissions? Click on Permissions -> Administrators and it will show you all groups and users in the above lists, that have admin permissions assigned.

Multiple people including me already told you. ;)

Hoping is a not a suggested method of work in Computer Science. :)

I am in shock reading that :wink: I absolutly love the new ACP and I couldn't be happier they finially sorted otu the groups thing. I love how phpBB has got rid of that stupid group moderator and subscribe thing (even though I think you can still enable ti if you want) The ACP is the greatist feature in this new board, and I for one couldn't be happier with it :)

You still have group leaders. Click the "promote" or "demote" button next to them.

Nice how you started 2 threads blasting away at this new release. As said in your other thread i disagree. And now reading this thread as well helps confirms my thought's in that other thread.
My suggestion would be to cut down on all the different forums/websites you have. Alot LESS work.

Module system? Can I change the look of the ACP right now for the Beta-1 version of Olympus I have set up? Or do I have to wait for the RC or Gold? The ability to change the look of the ACP would require an add-on that you'd have to upload into the directory?

The answer to that is an emphatic NO

I got around to adding a member as a moderator this morning. Only took about 20 mins to do so even after following the instructions after finding the links. :D

Still dont understand why you cant go to the members profile and change settings there as it is much much easier to do that way than to wander through a number of procedures in the current setup.

If you're confused about what options you have given a user, there is a very neat function where you can see what they see.

Click their username and select [ Test out users permissions ].
Very handy indeed. Then when you're done there's a link at the top of the screen to switch back to your permissions.

Just a quick note that I investigated the IE7 problem a little more and it is indeed an IE7 bug ... well or more or less changed behaviour from IE 5/6 that leads to breakage.

http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/06/01/613132.aspx

This is going to be fixed in IE7 Beta 3.
