You don't need access to any of the forums to be able to change the phpBB permissions. All you need is access to the Admin CP. I'm assuming you do want to reset all of your forum permissions?
First of all you should go to your forum permissions and select All Forums. Remove all of the permissions for the Groups and Users and start again. Set the permissions for the Guests group to Read Only. Set the permissions for the Registered Users group to Limited or something that suits your board. Anyone that's a part of the Registered Users group (including you) will be able to read and write to all forums.
With regards to the allow, no, deny
permissions: Basically allow means yes. No means no permissions are set. Deny blocks everything.
For example, if you wanted to create an Admin forum, you would set it to No Access (which is all No
permissions) for Registered Users, and Full Access
for the Administrator group (mostly Yes
you had set the Registered Users to all Deny
then it would have blocked
you because even though you have Full Access
permissions from the Administrator group, you have all Deny
permissions which always overrides everything
Deny permissions are useful if you want to block an individual user from doing something.
Usually users are set to No
for everything as they "inherit" all of their permissions from their groups.
Does that make a little
bit of sense?
