Group-based access to categories
I'm very new to nodeBB so apologies if this is a very basic question.
I'm trying to setup restrictions to categories based on group membership. I've scraped through the settings on the admin user setup during
./nodebb setupbut cannot find anything in relation to this.
The only post that I've found related to doing something like this I've found is Groups and permissions which mentions going to ACP > Manage > Categories. When I go to /admin/manage/categories and click Edit on a category, I do not see the table of group based permissions which is in a screenshot in the thread. I see the following:
I setup the forum instance pictured above by migrating a MySQL database used by a port of phpBB meant for phpnuke (a little odd but close to phpBB except uses
nuke_to prefix some tables but
nuke_bbfor others). I started with nodeBB 1.7.5 as per instructions in nodebb-plugin-import and forked the phpBB importer to a custom one accounting for the phpbb port for phpnuke use case. After running the importer, I followed upgrade steps outlined in the nodeBB documentation to upgrade to version
1.9.3(technically using the
v1.9.xbranch to upgrade).
Has nodeBB changed the way to manage permissions to categories or do I need a plugin to get access to a table like in the thread mentioned above?
