V4.0.9 w Joomla 3.4.5

I can't create new topics (by any registered user and even not by using the SuperUser)

Categories set and not locked (see screenshot)
Category Permissions set to "Registered" (+child groups) (see screenshot)
Configuration Security set (see screenshot)

Even if category permissions set to "Public" (and off course Configuration Security set to allow Guests to post) no new Topics can be added

Any ideas what else can be wrong?

You have enabled SEF rewrite in the global configuration. But I miss the .htaccess in your configuration report.

not really needed as (as you can see in the sysinfo) I'm running on IIS8 where that is made by IIS enhancement "URL Rewrite Module". That is working fine for whole Joomla including some other extensions.
www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite
and set up inline with Joomla docs:

Got it. It's not a bug, its a misleading feature ;-)
You need to have 3(!) levels to be able to post:
- SECTION
-- CATEGORY and
--- a SUB-Category

Not really self explainable and absolutely unneeded if the forum should be kept tiny

i see on the attach that the section is on Registered
Thats wrong, should be public

Also i see on the category itself, that only guests can reply.

So you need to check the permissions.

Hi 810, I'm not sure what you do mean as my Forum should be restricted to registered users only. Or do you mean that the Section itself should be always set to "public"?

Anyway if I set all (Section & 1st level Categories) to "Registered" it starts to work when I add some 2nd level Category (same permissions as 1st level category - see attached screenshot). So that would be contrary to above information.

I tried now again to set the Section to "public", but it has no impact to 1st level Category - no posting allowed at that level. (2nd level Category works as before)

So it looks for me like the 1st level Category is not build for postings. Or at what point am I wrong here?
Thx
rob-it

Public is the best way, else guest can't see the topics ect.

Understand, but I really don't want that guests will see the forum at all.

Apart from this, I still do not understand why the 1st level Category is not open for postings.

Actually, that's not right. You should only need (as minimum)

SECTION and
|__ CATEGORY

I sympathise with people who find it difficult to understand the concept of sections and categories (and we all agree that the documentation on this part of Kunena is hard to find and even harder to find!) but I may have a clue as to why you've found it necessary to create sub-categories under existing categories.

The subject of this topic that says "You do not have permissions to start a new topic!". There are many topics in this forum on this subject.

Perhaps you may have created the "first-level" category and then locked it? If you lock a category , before creating any topics in that category, no-one (not even the forum moderators or administrators) can create topics in that category. Is that what you may have done?

Locking an empty category is one of most common mistakes people can make.

It shouldn't really matter if you make a section accessible to "public" or to "registered"; it only matters if you want to allow the public to see the if a section exists or not. The configuration setting

Kunena configuration » Security » Security Settings » Registered Users Only = Yes

will hide your whole forum from non-registered visitors, yes, if that's what you want to do.
