Copy Permissions

About This File

This plugin will give admins the ability to copy permissions from forums/categories across the suite. Tested on:

  • Forums
  • Gallery albums
  • Downloads categories
  • Pages Databases (categories)
  • A few 3rd party apps, like Tutorials, Videos System, etc.

General rule: it has to work with any app that uses Categories.

1. I can't believe I missed this.

2. I can't believe IPS don't think this is useful enough to have in the core and I usually don't like to say that.


Question! Do you think this would work with Awards?

EDIT: So I tried it, was looking good but after submitting for a copy got an error message:


EX0 Something went wrong. Please try again.

With this log:


UnderflowException:  (0)

5 minutes ago, sudo said:

Its possible its something at my end though as its a fresh test import.

Not sure, may be. It seems to work fine on my board:

I tried to copy from a forum to "Mentoria", which is a sub in subcategory/category. Tried a few different set ups (category levels) and works fine.

Feel free to send a message with ACP access. Maybe I'm not understanding the issue and need to take a look.

Aha I found the issue, its working now. It appears the ipb hotfix patch may have fixed it as I just installed that and its working now.

Thanks for your speedy help though.


EDIT: Hmm looking at the changes I dont *think* it was that maybe, possibly a cache issue.


EDIT 2: So I have 2 sub categories, one I manually set permissions for after importing after it wouldnt show the expand > icon next to it, it now shows in the drop down but the other sub category still does not show the expand > icon even though there are forums under it. I wonder if its because I have not specifically set permissions on those sub forums yet. Either way at least I have a rough idea how to work around it and its probably an IPB quirk.
