I am trying to figure out how the permissions work. At one point of time, I created some categories and forums and these would appear as expected. However, recently any new forums that I create do not show up on the forums listing. I checked the database and they exist there. When I manage permissions for Administration group, I can see the forums in all list boxes but they are all selected as restricted. Event after I change all boxes to Allow All and save, they always go back to the restricted state.
Is it some sort of database integrity problem or did I somehow lock myself out? Please help.

1. Created new category with Administration group access
2. Category showed up in the index
3. Created new forum within the newly created category, left all the permissions boxes unselected (which is the default)
4. Forum DID NOT show up in the index, however I see it in the database. Also, in the Group Permissions, the newly created forum shows up as restricted.
Sounds like I followed all the right steps. I am using release 2.1.8. [originally posted on jforum.net by morciuch]
One more thing: I reinstalled JForum locally and all is working as expected. I suspect that my database is somehow corrupted from data integrity standpoint (I did not see any referential integrity in the database). Perhaps when I migrated from 2.1.7 to 2.1.8...
If it was as easy as just reinstalling, I'd do it in a heartbeat but there's sizable number of posts in the old database. [originally posted on jforum.net by morciuch]
Do you mean select who the new forum is restricted to? I did that (see attached screenshot) and the new forum is still not listed. As you can see from the screenshot, I denied access for General group.
