I'm creating new member groups for new subscriptions and I'm setting permissions for all my forums and subforums. I've more than 300. And I've a problem, I only can set permissions in a general way for ALL forums, but not for subforums or catgories as groups. So I need to set permissions one by one.
Did we have another way to set permissions more efficently? Now I need to select about 6.000 field check
Thanks for your help.
If you are going forum by forum, then change your approach by going to the group listing and click the padlock icon there for the group:
You then get this which is a one stop shop:
Thanks @Nathan Explosion and @Marc Stridgen, I was doing it this way. It is forum by forum for me because I need check or uncheck one by one for every, Group (4), forum (300) and situation (5), see, read, post, reply and download.
To simplify, I've this forum structure and I need this permissions:
Can you imagine the complexity?
I can't set permissions for all subforums in a forum by one click, I need a lot of clicks. The same for categories. It is necessary to be able to set these permissions by forum and category grouping.
In fact, setting permissions with the checkbox in the top column only makes sense for the Administrator or Moderator, other groups will always need a more varied combination and is not easy to do.
If you’re dealing with that level of complexity and will continue to have very high volumes of groups, it might be worth looking at developing automation with a third party developer.
By deciding to have that level of granularity, you take on the challenge that it is a total pain to manage.
Thanks @Randy Calvert but I think that IC is a powerfull app and forum permissions by groups is the core of any forum app. All can solved by custom apps but this custom apps only should be for special functions needed. The basics should be solved by core app.
Did I am the only one that have a big forum with some subscriptions levels and permissions? The only one with this problem? I think no. If not, I may have made a mistake in choosing IC as the application that allows me to scale and grow my community and business.
Well not is a problem, I can make this functions but will take a lot of time, probably some days, so we need to be more efficiently adding some basic tools like other forums apps as vBulletin, bbPress, WPForum and others.
So essentially you are looking to be able to select a forum and all its subforums. If that is the case, you would need to post that up as a feedback item. At present this is not something that is possible.
This can help as it will reduce significantly the work: you would need to set up the permissions for one forum and then copy to others.
