Running WPS v12.07.14... using s2Member as a membership plugin.
I'm pretty sure this is a roles-and-capabilities issue.
The WPS Forum display is not honoring the permissions that I set on the Forum Categories page. Specifically, any category for which I have NOT selected the "Everyone" permission level does NOT show up on my website Forum page, regardless of what other permission settings I use for the category.
For example, if I set the permission "s2Member Level 5" for a category but do not also set the "Everyone" permission, the category does not show up in the Forum. If I do set the "Everyone" permission, the category does show up.
At the moment, I can live with the behavior, because the Forum itself cannot be accessed by non-members... and all categories are meant to be available to all members.
But in the future, I may want to develop a program wherein some Forum categories are restricted according to membership level, which I cannot do if I have to select the "Everyone" setting to get a given category to appear.
