Archived ⇒ ForumsPro authorization issues

Intended setup:
Using Forums Pro ( if a user is not registered (ie, general public) they should be able to see the top-most 3 forums. If they are registered they should see 2/3 of the rest of the forums. The remaining forums are based on group permissions.

If a un-registered user OR a registered user with no group is on the site I get "This board has no forums" (and yes, the url is listed as index.php?name=ForumsPro)

Apparently only site Admin or Admin users can actually see the forums.

Settings that are related:
1) I have the forum permissions 'view/read' for 3 forums that is public all display. Users can not post unless registered.
Then 2/3 of the forums are for registered users set in permissions as 'read,write,post'. The remainder are private for group permission users.

2) I have the module set to All visitors, viewed left.

3) I have the menu link enabled in the Community section.

4) IF I have logged in as a regiatered user AND I have logged in as Admin to check something, THEN logged OUT as Admin, the registered user retains the admins permissions.

Requested solution:
Want common unregistered players to see and not post in 3 forums, want registered users to be able to see, post and user most of the rest of the forums. Why is this not happening?

Probably won't get much help here - try over at Myndworx
They're the ones that made and support the module - my best guess: you're editing Forums permissions instead of ForumsPro permissions.
