The curious thing about it is that I can see the 3 posts when not logged in but get the "You do not have the required permissions to read topics within this forum." when logged in.

From what I can tell and see, it looks like when Pale Wolf 'moved' the post and set up the Sf/f string, it was set up for open read like all the forums when visitors come to the site, but somehow set restrictions for reading and posting access to Moderators when logged in. Though it might be due to Pale Wolf's particular Moderator status as well...!(◎_◎;)

The permissions for that subforum were rather wonky, as I recall. Originally even I couldn't view it.

Sunny's tweaked the permissions around a bit, but given how none of the staff have non-staff accounts, anyone here mind checking to make sure it works right? I can see it fine, but if it's moderator-only...

Excellent. I'll mark that off as cleared, then, unless anyone else notes any problems.

Don't be shy, that's what we're here for, and otherwise our lives are filled with boredom :P

As a web programmer by trade I'd suggest that administrators create a dummy user account with its password available to all moderators. You can't truly control the system unless you have means to login as a limited user. Our network administrators at work seem to suffer from that and it's a real pain. Even the slightest thing takes up to three attempts, involving several days of exchanging e-mails and phone calls :evil: I myself always create a test user account when building a new web-interface. I also always login into a new user account I create, to make sure everything works. Things look very different from there than from the rights management interface.

If you do make a dummy account like that may I suggest it be named Genma?
