Re:Convert PHP-Nuke User DB to XOOPS...
I'm running a live php cpg-nuke site with 1100+ memebers and forums, i've set up my XOOPS site and started work on it, i have managed to port the users and the forums over with a little help of a friend even though it wasnt an easy task.
My problem is in the forums, i had an admin forum that was private for admins only and works fine on the cpg-nuke site, i have had some members test the XOOPS site and they can log in fine and view the forums, i have two memebers that couldn't post though and i have searched high and low as to why they can't when every one else has succeded, even i have logged in as one of them with their password and succeded at posting with their name, but my main problem is that every one has access to the admin forum and can read our private discusions.
In the forum admin i have created another private admin forum and moved all topics from the old to the new and set up group access for admins only but still it is viewable to registered users. it works fine when not logged in and it gives me notice that it is not visible to me then but as soon as i log in as a registered member i can view and post even if that user name is not set to admin rights.
Does any one have any idea what could be causing this?
would it be simple if i just set up a 3rd forum just for admins? or am i wasting my time? i have two forums running right now on the XOOPS site, both have the same topics in for the time being as i'm just testing before going live and closing the old site i'd then have to port the latest topics that have been added to the nuke site and sepeate the catagories into the two forums, one for social and technical forums and the second forum for events.
i'd be greatful if any one could shed some light on my issue but its the only one i have had with porting from cpg-nuke to xoops.
