Documentation & Wiki

Hey guys, I'm trying my best to RTFM and find out all I can about Permissions as I'm setting up my roles and such on my site now. I've found this bit of documentation:

http://vanillawiki.homebrewforums.net/index.php/Permissions

But it sounds old as it's talking about 2.1 as being in Beta.

I've looked at what is linked off of the default docs page: http://vanillaforums.org/docs

...and it seemed quite basic without going into any depths as to the permissions system. I know it must be there, but I think I'm missing it.

Thanks! (Loving V2 btw)

    The permissions haven't changed much (if at all), so I would consider that wiki page to be current.

    What questions do you have about the permissions system?

    Documentation is always going to be a bit behind because it takes so much effort to maintain. You are welcome to add your knowledge as you gain it. :)

    Perhaps I'm just looking for a better explanation of what "Garden" is.

    Garden.Applicants.Manage - Allows access to /dashboard/settings and shows applicant count in menu, shows link to /dashboard/user/applicants.

    If I look at that, it would appear that people would have permissions to manage the users? But I don't see this toggle anywhere in our actual permissions.

    Thanks Linc, not exactly what I'm looking for. I'm looking for an "Admin Roles & Permissions: Detailed Look" type thing. Where folks talk about each permission and what turning them off or on does.

    A "popup" or "tool tip" hover text thingy might be nice on the Admin page that explain what each thing does.

    As it is, I will probably just have to "hit and hope" on what they mean.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond though.
