I love the new phpBB 3 its fantastic, aprt from one aspect...Permissions
It is so annoying that you have to set everything one by one, and yes I know there are group settings. But you still have to set every forums permissions as to who can read it, write to it etc...
I have over 40 forums in 8 categories and growing each day and this is very annoying, I want to be able to Create a new forum and it have the same permisssions for registered users, guests, bots etc as the last 39 forums i set up. (If you do got to set manually and select all forums, you get a list of drop down boxes so long that the page nearly crashes as I have so many forums, it took me 3/4 hour just to select each drop down box and press full access as there is 5 groups and a box for each for each forum!)
Also Admin by default should have everything turned on as default, after all they are the admin, it took ages to figure out how to turn it on so that i could display the post topic as for my self. Then i figured out that I have to set every forum to all Admin full access? this is madness it should be default or be able to do it at the press of 1 button that this feature is turned on for all forums.
I still haven't figured out how you give something permission to use the topic icons? anyone got any ideas.
