Is Create Category dropdown menu supposed to include option to set custom permissions?


I haven't used Vanilla in several years and am pleased by its growth and continued vibrant support community. Thanks to all responsible for that!

I have installed 2.6.4, and seem to recall that I had no trouble before in setting up private rooms visible only to certain roles, but the process must have changed. I can create the role and category, but see no way to marry them. I searched extensively before asking, but find no current info here that corresponds with what I'm seeing when I create the category. Can someone tell me how to assign a role to it?

    When you edit a category, you have to check "This category has custom permissions."
    Afterwards you can give custom permissions when editing a role.

    Once the category is created, click the button on the right of the category, then choose edit.

    Then custom permissions option is at the bottom.

  • Oh, duh, of course. Thank you so much.
