I've set up a server to host a community a few weeks ago with Tiki 21 LTS. Since I ran into some issues I thought it may be wise to wait for Tiki 24 LTS and upgrade, before reporting bugs for a years old version...
Well - last weekend I did the update and found out, that nothing changed with regards to my issues.
Now here is my biggest one - and I have no idea if this is a bug or a setting somewhere I don't find...
The permissions of the forums are set as follows:
Everyone (including Guests) may:
Registered Users can additionally:
- tiki_p_forum_autoapp (will also be applied to guests after GoLive)
Subadmins / Moderators and Admins have also these permissions:
Being online as Admin or Subadmin all runs fine in the forums.
But while guests and normal users can reply in existing threads they can't create new ones - the button "Create Thread" (or similar, I run Tiki in German language where the button is named "Neues Thema") is missing. They see only the button "List Forums".
Apart from the permissions above I have also found the setting in ControlPanels => Forums => Threads (set minimum amount of Posts). Default value is 10 here. I had set it to 0. May this be the reason?
Setting it for testing to 1 (while I have 2 guest answers existing) should enable each guest to create threads - right? Well - it doesn't. The button is still missing.
So most probably the problem comes from somewhere else...
Anyone any ideas?
Thanks and best regards
