#1845 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

read_private_forums not set for registered users

Reported by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 2.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.0
Component: Component - Users Keywords:


Traditional forum software sets up private forums to be visible only to registered users, and hidden forums to be mostly for staff members. The 'read_private_forums' cap is not set for all other registered user roles. This was done intentionally in 2.0, and hasn't been added back for 2.1.
