'My Discussions' Permissions

edited September 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Hello. I recently made the switch to Vanilla on my web forums, and I've just run into a bit of an issue regarding the filtering options at the top of the page, where all posts are shown, with options to show 'All Discussions' and 'My Discussions.' As an Administrator for me it works fine, but normal members seem unable to use the 'My Discussions' and they receive a message telling them that they do not have the permissions to use the filter, or words to that effect (haven't seen it myself).

Now, I am guessing that the problem lies somewhere in the actual way I have permissions set up for members, but the whole 'garden' concept sort of eludes me a little bit and I'm not really sure what to enable. Here's what my member permissions look like:

Any help appreciated. :)

    What you have there looks fine, so I'm not sure what the issue is. I'll just clarify that "Garden" = "Dashboard" for most purposes. I agree that label is confusing in the permissions. Garden is the (old?) name of the framework that Vanilla is built on.

    It's probably related to the fact that you're filthy alliance... *grin*

    But more seriously, I signed up and made a test post, then visited the "My Discussions" link and it seemed to work perfectly.

    Could you ask whichever member(s) are receiving this error to take a screenshot of it next time? That way we'll have a better understanding of what is going wrong...

    Well thanks for the replies. I'll investigate further and report back with the results. :)
  • It was me who was getting the error on the My Discussion button - here is the very pretty error :D

    @Rumly could you add me to the "Member" role and remove me from "New Member" so I can see what Robski is seeing?

  • Sure :)

    Will do it now.
  • It is done. :)

    You forgot to check the "Garden.SignIn.Allow" box, in the first checkboxgrid.

    Garden ... ... ... ... ... Allow
    SignIn ... ... ... ... ... ... [ ]
