Hi there,

I just downloaded JForum and installed on Tomcat 5.5, JDK 1.5.0_12 and MySQL 5.1. Installation was a breeze.. Logged in as admin to create some new categories etc, but when I add a new category, forum or topic, they are never reflected in the UI and consequently, I can never see them in the forum landing page.

I checked their respective tables in MySQL and they are indeed being added to the DB, just not be displayed. Is this a caching issue?

btw - Nothing useful is being reported in the console.

Cheers,
Jay

it's not related to caching but rather to a 'bug' on the admin panel.

As soon as you configure some rules for displaying the forums/categories pretty much every group needs to be reconfigured with permissions, regarding this new forum/category. After creation it's all set to "hide".

So you need to go back to the admin panel, and check the permissions of the administrator group aswell as any other group that should have certain permissions/restrictions and revalidate the forum rules.

As long as no forum is visible for a category, the category will not be displayed. If at least one forum is allowed to be viewed you'll also see the category (automatically).

Thanks for the reply. A little convoluted, but I'll give it a shot.

Cheers,
Jay

I have to say that this is truly a bug.
I think the privileges are heiarchy and inherited.
So if i give a category the privilege "delete" to the group Gerneral ,the group Admin also can delete it.

thx.
