I was adding some categories into the forum installed on my computer. Fields for me to fill in, includes
1) Category Name
2) Choose the groups you want to allow the access to this new Category.

After adding the categories, I can only edit the Category Name but not the groupings under the Category Name.

You should edit the permissions at "Permissions" under User or Group management.

Hi Rafael, thanks for replying. Actually this one isn't a bug
Btw, I think my problem is I am jumpy ops:

Sorry, I wasn't clear just now.
First I create a new category called Business.
When I created the Business category, i can set the grouping as Administration, General or Moderation.
If I go back to the Business category and try to change the grouping (Administration, General or Moderation), I can't change as there isn't any listbox to select.

Well, I can alway make sure that I choose the category grouping (Administration, General or Moderation) correctly in the first place.

Thanks again. I have to say that this application is well written.

Regards,
James Yong

You did right. Just remember that, after you create the Forum / Category, if you want to change the permission settings, you shoud use the user / group permission control. The "Group" box that you see when you are creating a new forum / category does not shows up when you are in edition mode.
