Misleading information about permissions displayed after editing forum settings

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Unverified Fix
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 3.0.8
    • Fix Version/s: 3.0.10-RC1
    • Component/s: Language pack
    • Labels:
      None

      Description

      If "View active topics" is set to "No", as it is by default, and you go into a forum's settings and change the radio button to "Yes" and Submit, you get this information message:

      Information

      Forum information updated successfully.

      Now you are able to set permissions for this forum.

      This implies (and I know it does not state it explicitly) that the changing of that setting somehow requires the forum permissions to be reset, or that making this change has somehow enabled the ability to set permissions, which is not the case. Without testing, I imagine the same message gets displayed when other, nonpermission-related changes are made.

          It sounds like the permissions notice should only be displayed after forum creation (not editing).
