When a standard user tries to post topics or create docs in a private or hidden group, they get the following error message and nothing is posted:
ERROR: This forum is hidden and you do not have the capability to read or create new topics in it.
In addition, in hidden forums, normal users cannot even see topics posted by admins…
Further, hidden groups I am member of are not visible in the normal groups-overview but IS visible in the My Groups tab.
While in hidden groups, normal members can create documents, in private groups, they receive the following error message when clicking on “Save” for a new document:
You are not allowed to read that Doc.
Consequently the data is lost, no new document is created (logged in with admin-account afterwards to check). Therefore, also the error message is highly misleading since this is not a read-permission error, it seems.
There seems to be some serious issues with roles somewhere in the system… 🙁
Hope you can help fix these soon.
Some related posts I found elsewhere:
I do use commonsinabox 1.0
If someone wants to have a look at the installation with an admin-account, write me. There is not yet any serious data on there, as it was freshly installed for using it later this week…
