Hello there.

Since a few days I'm receiving these emails from mu JForum installation:


You received this email because a new topic of was created in our forum. The topic title is "",
and you can use the following URL to read it:

If you no longer want to receive notifications for this forum, please access

When I click to that link for looking (and then deleting) the entry, I get this:

Oooops. You don't have sufficient privileges to access this topic

But my account has admin privileges. What should I do?

There are several conditions that can cause a forum to be created so that the admin group does not have rights.

The solution is to go into the groups admin page, then select the permissions for the admin group.

In this page, make sure that "Allow all" is selected for both the Categories and Forums files. Then save the settings.

You should be able to access all forums as an admin now.

If that doesn't solve the problem, try restarting the webapp. It could be a problem with the in memory repository code. A restart will rebuild this.
