    Default Forum Permissions for News Module

    I have not been able to figure out how to set it up so that my news display is governed by the forum permissions of my news forum. Can someone describe where I find the setting to enable this for the news module?

    If you'll run these queries it should take care of the problem.

    INSERT INTO adv_setting (varname, grouptitle, value, defaultvalue, optioncode, displayorder) VALUES ('portal_applypermissions', 'adv_portal_news', 1, 1, 'yesno', 6);

    INSERT INTO adv_setting (varname, grouptitle, value, defaultvalue, optioncode, displayorder) VALUES ('portal_applypermissions', 'adv_portal_poll', 1, 1, 'yesno', 3);

    INSERT INTO adv_setting (varname, grouptitle, value, defaultvalue, optioncode, displayorder) VALUES ('portal_applypermissions', 'adv_portal_latestthreads', 1, 1, 'yesno', 5);

    Will this be put in to the install script for rc3/final?

    It actually is in the install script now. Because the variable names are the same though it's not recognizing the first two. But yes, it will be corrected in the next version.
