    Default Admin functions

    I'm trying to restrict viewing of Hentai Fanfiction to Admins/Mods + the "18+" group... when I'm trying to view the currect permissions, it gives me a foot up my ass

    DB says that I'm a full admin, so I'm not sure what's going on...

    I just checked and yes you are 100% undeletable administrator. There was an old group called founding members but that would have been the only cause for a conflict issue. I think it could be the way you are trying to do it.

    got to the Admin CP/Forums & Moderators/Forum Permissions/

    Scroll down to "Hentai Fan Fiction"

    Seclect Group to edit by clicking on the [Edit] in front of the group

    In the next screen your have to select "Use Custom Permissions" at the top, then the permissions you want from the list below it.

    When finished click on the save button to retain the changes.

    It's a real pain in the butt but you will have to do this for every user group. Let me know if you cannot get to these screens and if it gives an error, what that exact error will be so I can look it up.

    Hm... when I go there, it says exactly the same thing:

    "Sorry, you don't have permission to access the administrative controls on this page.

    If you need to access this page, ask your lead administrator to enable your permissions for this page using the Administrator Permissions section of the control panel."

    I was trying a different route the others times, but it would always lead me to this notice...

    Oh that is weird. I'll try some adjustments and maybe you will have to log-off and log back on to refresh the account changes.

    Would be nice if DB could lend a hand with issues like this.

    Umm... You're the administrator right!? There is this really cool search engine called Google that tells me how to do a lot of stuff that I'm to lazy to figure out. Give it a shot or look up the support forums. If you really get stuck, you can ask GL if you can borrow the "foot" that he's sitting on

    Not sure because I thought you were going to fix. Is this still a problem?
