    I was trying to get it to work on 3.4.1 and although it lets me apply and be granted acces, there's no way to save the access once granted. The "Forum restrict administration" has no save button, so when you leave the page you still have no access. Also, there's an un-named tick box on the far left which, as soon as you clich it, deletes the record its next to. And then you need to start again.

    The other problem I see is that it identifies a user based on the IP address. Which is OK if you're on a fixed IP, but if you'r on a virtual IP from your ISP then you get a new one pretty often. As a result your constantly having to apply for permission.

    Terence, sorry about the long delay in answering. I didn't get any notification of your post.

    The Forum Restrict Administration screen does not require a Save button because all changes are in real time. If you click on a member's checkbox, it deletes it immediately and moves it to the non-member status. Same happens in the other direction. There is nothing to save. It is already committed. The next version will label that tick box as "Delete" or "Add" depending on the context.

    I'm not sure what you mean when you say that it identifies a user based on the IP Address. It identifies a user via a search on the string you enter in the Member Filter box. It checks that string against the user tables based on the user name, display name, and nice name fields.
