IPB 4.2.4 permissions bug

Andrzej Pindor

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to set permissions on IPB after import from VB4. I found non-deterministic behavior of ACP settings.

I have user - jedrus.tester. His primary group is "Members". His only secondary group is "Spotkania Mazowieckie":



Group "Members" has social permissions in section "Profiles" as below:




Group "Spotkania Mazowieckie" has option "Can access site" set to "Disabled":



Now - user jedrus.tester:

I think there it's a bug. Why one permission is inherited from primary group Members (edit profile / set cover photo) and another (profile photo) is forbidden? When I remove user from secondary group "Spotkania Mazowieckie" he can set his profile photo: https://i.imgur.com/Alzvfaj.png 

Please clarify how permissions inheritance works or confirm that this is an error and when it will be fixed.

“Positive” and “more” should always take affect. If there is one “allowed” and one “not allowed”, it should be “allowed”. If there is “10MB” and “20MB” it should be “20MB”. 

I can’t see from the screenshots alone what causes that behavior regarding the profile image.
