I have a new installation of JForum 2.1.7 running under Tomcat.
I started to set up things this morning, but now I've got a problem with a new forum. I created several forums, the last one being "Problems and Bugs". It didn't show up in the forum list. Looking at the permissions for the Administration group, this new forum is selected in the Restricted Forums list.
If I change Restricted Forums to Allow All and click on Save, the change doesn't "take". The next time I go back into Permissions for the Administration group, "Problems and Bugs" is still selected under Restricted Forums. I've tried to make this change several times. This is true for all groups.
I can't delete the forum until I can get JForum to list it in the Admin Control Panel.
I can see the forum in the database (MySQL). So I'm wondering why the changes aren't being updated in the database, or why they are set incorrectly. Note that other changes to the group get updated correctly.
Is there a safe way to manually remove a forum from the database, or what would I need to modify to correct the permissions problem?
