I recently added a new category to my forums. Then added 2 new forums one day, these show up and topics are being added with not problems.

However, on another day , I added a third forum to the category. It doesn't show up on the forum index but does show in group permission
pages. Why doesn't it show up in the index?

Restarting JForum resolved this.

How do I know which changes require restart of JForum to make them active?

Hmm, since they showed up after a restart, it sounds like a problem with the information cached in memory. Assuming these were added via the admin panel, the memory caches SHOULD be updated automatically. If you added them directly to the DB, then a restart of jForum will always be required to update the cache.

It might also be related to the admin user not having access after being created.. but then getting access via a group permission change afterwards. Sometimes a change like this requires the USER to log off and back on to get the cached permissions updated. Did you log off and back on again before restarting jForum?

No, I don't think so. I'll do some testing with my test installation and see whether I can duplicate this.
