phpp isnt showing forums / permissions problems

Post by seanwest » Fri Jul 20, 2018 9:09 am

I am i guess hacking phpbb a lil to make it work with my sites login system

I have the login part down, but the registration has an issue with permissions and i cannot find what table they are in exactly.

By default everyone does not seem to be able to see the forums, i have to login to the admin and give them permissions.
I do not want to do this with each person. is there a table field i can update to give them permission to full access?

You should not give individual users different permissions it will end up being a nightmare, you should do it by group. Use group forum permissions - if it's for the guests group (users not logged in) give that group read access to whatever forums you want them to see or, if it's for logged in users, give the registered user group standard access.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.
