@crazycells A forum opened in multiple tabs will use the same session.
An incognito tab would be a new, separate, session.
Separate browsers are separate sessions.
I am running Nodebb 0.9.3 with MongoDB. I have been using this forum for a while and it has been working properly but today i noticed that registered users can no longer post to categories that require the user to be registered. When a user goes to post a topic in the composer they only see a subset of categories - there doesnt seem to be anything common between the cats they can see (all areas require the user to be logged in to post). Nothing has changed on the forums in months. My Admin user can see all of the categories.
Logs do not show anything.
@whitts are the missing categories... subcategories?
@pichalite Hi, its a mixture.. around 5 main categories out of 7 and loads of sub categories. They can access and read the categories but just cant post to them. I tried removing the Create Topic priv for registered users from the cats and then re-adding it but it didnt help
@whitts what version of the composer are you using? Is your forum public?
@pichalite Composer should be the official one from the 0.9.3 release (package.json says its 1.0.26). I havent updated it for a while. The forum is internal unfortunately. Thanks
@pichalite Whats really strange is that if i give registered users the rights to create Topics in the main categories the sub cats become available. My current setup looks like this:
MainCat1 - Read/View Access but not Create rights
MainCat2 - Read/View Access but not Create rights
Before they could post to the sub cats but not the main cats.. now they cant see any of them unless i give create rights in the main cat.
@whitts it's not strange... it's a known issue reported a while ago... still not fixed. that's why I asked if they are subcategories in my first reply.
composer tries to be fancy with the dropdown to show subcategories under categories like a tree but fails miserably when the parent category does not have the create topic permissions
@pichalite When i say strange i mean - I'm sure it was working before (now i am wondering how long people havent been able to post for ). Oh well not a big issue in the end. Thanks for your help.
This is fixed now, will be available in 1.1
