I created a group. I set the group as having control of two forums. I added a user to that group and set "YES" on every permission in that group.

However, he doesn't see a link anywhere to move a topic. Not in the main thread listing, and not in the thread itself. Where is this link supposed to be? Did I do something wrong or is it a bug? I am running version 2.7.6 at the moment.

Did you set the permissions in the user-land group manager linked from the front page?

Yes, it basically looks like this:

Currently Editing: *Group Name*
This group controls permissions of the following forums:
*Forum A*
*Forum B*

*All the drop-downs*

Member	Permissions (move mouse over the permission to see its type)	Action
*User Name* 	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes 	[Edit] [Delete]

That looks like the right place. Is the user member of any other group?

Ah, yes... he is...

Currently Editing: *Other Group Name*
This group controls permissions of the following forums:
*Forum C*
*Forum A*
*Forum B*

*All the drop-downs*

Member	Permissions (move mouse over the permission to see its type)	Action
*User Name* 	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	No	No	No	Yes	Yes	Yes	Yes	No	No	No	Yes	Yes	Yes 	[Edit] [Delete]


There are other members of this group as well. I don't necessarily want to give him more permissions for Forum C, so I guess what I need to know now is if it's possible to make the Yeses on the other group take precedent or do I need to take him out of this group here and add him to the "*Forum C" group with those permissions instead?

I've tried to make my custom group names match a particular role that a user might have in the forum. Some users might have multiple roles. If this isn't possible, then I will probably just give all the members of this group the ability to move threads just to keep things simple. These members are among the most trusted anyway.

Ideally you want to make sure that permissions of a user for one forum are controlled explicitly via one group only (I am not taking about all registered user mark).

Otherwise the forum's permission resolver will pick the strictest (most limited) permissions for the user.

OK, thanks for the clarification. I hadn't thought to check the other groups for an overlap.
