    Hello,

    I recently downloaded your forum, and I must say it is a nice plugin. I am having an issue though with changing permissions for certain roles. When I go to change them in the forum edit page I get this error "Error updating Forum ID 7. It is likely your roles haven't been updated (WPBB -> Tools -> Refresh Roles)". So I went over to the role refresher, and I then got this error "Failed to refresh roles, please try again or make sure you have made changes to the roles". Now I have tried changing the roles in WP, and even creating new ones. I will get the error from the role refresh tool, but it will add the new role to the forum check box list. It won't let me check any of the permission boxes for that role or any of the others tho.

    I was thinking about this issue, and I know I had the category problem where my DB is in utf8. Could it be possible that its the same issue? If so do you have a updated link to that fix on pastebin since it is no longer valid?

    Hey,

    Are you using the s2 member plugin by any chance? If you are, or aren't, could you paste the roles that you see when creating/editing a forum here please?

    Thanks!

    This is a picture to the forum permission screen. It seems I can update the stock roles, but not the ones I created.

    Hey,

    Thanks for the screenshot. How are you creating new roles, through a plugin? Could you post a link to the plugin if so?

    Thanks

    I have some new info on this situation. I decided to delete the WPBB plugin and reinstall it totally. The permissions now work correctly in the respect that I can edit the role in WP and update it with the tool. I can also change the permissions around on each forum correctly now. However I am not able to create categories due to the utf8 bug. I'm wondering if running that DB code line to fix the category issue actually messed up the whole role/permissions aspect of it.

    I did some more poking around and found out that there is still a problem with the "guest" account. I am able to adjust all the roles accordingly except when I enable the guest account. When enabled it makes the "Guest" role and automatically gives guests the "view, read, post, edit" capabilities. I am able to uncheck them and save but they just come right back. To get rid of the guest account i need to turn off in wpbb settings, and then delete the role from wp. So in short I cannot create categories, but can change role permissions correctly with the exception of the "Guest" account. What I would like to have happen is just have the "guest" account be able to view and read the forums if possible. If possible could I have the code to fix the categories again, and i'll test if the permissions bug comes back from it.

    Sure, here is the SQL query you need to run (will be updating the plugin shortly with this fix):

    Did you try the WPBB -> Tools -> Refresh Roles as well? It does work for me locally with this fix, I'm guessing that some role(s) aren't being recognized properly and so it isn't able to add them to the category/forum/subforum.

    Hey the forums are working correctly now after I did the clean install. I used you fix above and its still working as long as I do not enable the "Guest" account. I was wondering if you could possible help me with another matter which I just discovered when I remade the forums.

    Forums

    This picture is of my website when I open a topic. For some reason the bottom of the page gets thrown all out of position. As you can see the reply buttons are misplaced, and my quickbar buttons are misplaced also. The footer is also not in its right spot. Not sure if its fixable on your end or if its my theme, but it only happens on the topic template.

    Also I have a suggestion for a future build... If its possible could we be able to set view permissions on categories? Also is there anyway to make the actualy forums/categories invisible to those without the proper permissions? Currently you can see all the forums just not enter them.

    Glad to hear it!

    Sure can, is it a free theme that you downloaded? Could you provide a name or link for the theme?

    I've actually added this to the rewritten version already so you will be able to set permissions for categories and also prevent role(s) from actually seeing a category / forum or sub forum, but it's still quite a while away from being released yet.
