I can't clearly understand user-groups-based access to boards.
After install I have "Forum Members" group that have access to all globally accessible boards. I've added here a "test" user (not admin user, now it is member of "Forum Members" group only).
My "test" user have access all over the forum.
Good, but I want to have some boards that will be accessible to selected user groups only.
First, I have created a new group "OXC":
give it one context "web" "Member - 9999" "Load, List and View"
and a "test" user as "Member - 9999" ("test" user now is member of "Forum Members" & "OXC" groups).
: Should I add second context "web" "Member - 9999" "Discuss Member Policy" to my "OXC" group? Seems that is not necessary, but I have to ask to be sure
Then, I have created a standard board "OXC members only".
As I understand there are two ways to edit access to boards:
#1. Components -> Discuss -> Boards -> "OXC members only" -> Edit Board -> User Group Access
And add here "OXC" group.
#2. Components -> Discuss -> User Groups -> "OXC" -> Update User Group -> Boards
And check here boards to access.
Adding "OXC" group to "OXC members only" board settings causes changes in "OXC"'s checked boards - (#1) causes changes of (#2)
But checking "OXC members only" board in "OXC" group settings not causes changes in "OXC members only" board settings - (#2) not causes changes of (#1)
And it not take effect at all
- even after value have been saved, when update-user-group-page reloaded it takes value of board settings (#1), not its own new (allegedly "saved") value. Seems that mechanism (#2) is not working?..
Alright.. let's simply add a group to our board (#1). Save, clear the cache, flush permissions - new settings displays successfully on both pages. But "test" user still do not have access
to "OXC members only" board. While Admin and Guest do have
! Smiling through tears))) Exactly the opposite result)) What I'm doing wrong?
