Please help. The new Forum role-permissions functionality has broken my forum.
I just updated to v12.06.16... and now the "You are not permitted to start a new topic" message appears in place of the "New Topic" button for all of my site members REGARDLESS of how I set the permissions on the new "Forum new topic roles". The same issue holds for the "Forum reply roles".
Also, the Forum itself does not appear at all unless I select the "View forum roles" > "Guests" option. If I select only the roles and/or membership levels that exist for members on the site, the forum does not appear. (Similarly, I on the "Forum Categories" page, the Permitted Roles settings do not work for me... and I must select "Everyone" for all categories; otherwise, they do not appear for my members regardless of role or user level.)
I have checked my "Forum Categories" settings. All of their "Permitted Roles" settings are set to "Everyone" and each one is set to "Allow new topics = Yes".
Everything was working fine before the update (aside from needing to set the "Forum Categories" Permitted Roles settings to "Everyone"... which has been an issue for some time).
And fortunately, I'm still building the site prior to release. But this is an absolute stopper. A the forum functionality is a big reason that I went with WPS.
