Permission problem, cant view new categories even as admin

Post by Rot-Iron66 » Fri Apr 20, 2018 4:44 pm

Trying to setup a new forum, on 3.2.2. I know this is probably something so trivial, but I cannot see new categories/sub-forums, even as admin.
The 1st default category and sub-forum is fine (I can even edit it, change its name, etc.). When I do new category, I cant view it, even if I copy permissions from default/previous category that I can view. AS admin, creating any new category, shouldnt I be able to view it from board index? Anyone run into this? I should note (and it could be part of the issue) I am on free "vistapanel" hosting and installing from there. Not sure if it has anything to do with it. I have attached a quick pic and can attach more. One thing I do notice, when I go back in to edit the one I cant see, it has "do not copy permissions" set, even though I choose to copy from the ones I can view.

Being an admin has nothing to do with being able to view forums or categories. It only allows you to view the ACP.

A category is not viewable unless it contains at least one viewable forum. Does your new category contain any forums?
