Set group forum permissions for all forums.

Post by Edeholland » Wed May 09, 2018 11:57 am

Hi,I want to change the permissions from the "newly registered users" group, so they can't post without approval.

I go Permissions > Group forum permissions > All forums and here I can edit it. But, I want it to change on ALL forums. I can't select each forum individually and change it, that would take days. I also can't copy forum permissions from one forum to another, because each forum has it's own unique permissions that I don't want to copy. I just want to copy this one group permissions to all forums.

How can I set this specific group forum permissions on all forums at once?

That permission is already the default for that group if you assign the newly registered users role to all of the forums.

If you want to edit an existing set of permissions you can edit the roles in the permissions tab.

Outside of that you would need to set the permissions for each forum or groups of forums that are the same.

When I go to Permissions > Forum roles > Newly Registered User Access the permission "can post without approval" is set to NEVER.

However, I just tried making a new account to post, and I could post without a problem.

I have set the max amount of posts for Newly Registered Users to 1.

I want newly registered users to get approval for 1 post, so that they then move to registered users and can post freely.

How is it possible that I can still post with a new account, when it's set to NEVER?

You probably don't have the group forum permissions set to the newly registered users access.

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.

In there, the "can post without approval" is set to Yes. I could change it, but I would have to do it for each forum individually, which is the problem I have. I also wonder why that's really needed when NEVER should override Yes.

The registered users group will be on YES through their standard access (or standard + polls) permission.
The newly registered users group will be on NEVER through their newly reg'd users access permission.

So I have to edit the permissions for each forum individually? How can I do that faster without copying permissions?

Go to
Permissions
Permissions Masks
View forum based permissions
Select a forum
Type a brand new user's name in the Find a member box
Click View Permissions.

Click the circle-arrow next to Post without permission
That will show you where the new user's permission is coming from.

Thanks, I did not know about that function.

It seems like it comes from both the groups, what I don't understand, because it was set to NEVER in forum rules, as you can see in my second post.

But clearly, it isn't.

All you have to do is to make sure the Newly registered users Role has a never for Can post without approval (which it is by default) and assign that role to every forum. Should be able to do 6 or so at a time

That's the question I was asking in the OP, how can I do more forums at a time? I can select all hunderds of forums, but I still have to click on the permissions for each one. Can I use an SQL-query or something extension? Is there no build-in function to change permissions for every forum you have?

You have hundreds of forums with hundreds of unique permissions? How do you keep track of them all?

Yeah I don't :( Which is why I would like to know how to manage them better. Can you confirm there is no way to adjust every forum at the same time? Maybe with a query?

No. That is what "copy permissions" is for.
Set up a forum with the proper permissions and then copy it to whatever forums you want.
Also, if your forum permissions are out of control, you are probably better-off starting from scratch. Set up base permissions on one forum and copy to all the rest.

What is the average number of posts in each of your hundreds of forums?
