Hi Chuck I knew that but the problem is that not all of the children have the same rights. If I change the parent and then tick the box to inherit changes all the sub cat inherit the parent and then I have to visit each sub cat and change the permissions again.
What would be preferable is that a new group could do one of the following things:
1 inherit another groups permissions
2 allow all cats for upload, comments etcetera...
3 disallow all cats for uploads, comments etcetera...
4 or be able to overwrite group permissions for categories permissions
Anyway, that said does this mean that I will have to visit each category and sub and change the permissions on every single subcat individually then?
