GARS admin permissions not working right? I upgraded on our live server and my admin account (not the main account that has full rights in the DB, but my normal daily use admin account) no longer has access to admin GARS. Went into Admin Permissions in User Manager in ACP and there IS an entry for "Can Administer GAZ " which keeps defaulting to no (our version of GAZ on live is old, so that might explain that) and an entry under that that has no label, just the "Yes" and "No" radio buttons.

We've also suddenly got a bunch of header images defaulting to the article title instead of an image, the path seems to be set correctly in the GARS->Settings though? :: puzzled look ::

vB version: 3.6.5
Platform: Centos Linux
Web server: Apache v1.3.37
PHP: 5.1.6
MySQL: 5.0.27-standard-log

Let me know if you need to see the problem and I'll setup an admin account for you... Though I can't give you GARS Admin rights ;-).

Thanks!

lol , The gaz issue will be an older one. Can you check a couple things for me? Well start with this:

Check the administrator table for the garspermission field (and what its value is for you)

I don't have a "garspermission" field? I do have a "garsadminperms", I'm thinking that's what you're looking for? All records are showing a 1 in there. I'm also showing a "geekperms" and all records have a 0.

geekperms will be from your old GAZ install. Can you re-import the 2.1.8 product xml?

hmmm. Try uninstalling the old version of GAZ . If that doesnt do it, PM me admincp details.

@Gilligan - you need to edit the types module set. Each module in the set can have settings that control its behaviour. http://www.thevbgeek.com/geeki/index...ration_in_GARS

HTHs!

I've installed the new version for the first time. Did all necessary install instructions and finally can't find the navigation in my ACP. Reuploading the cbnav.xml and the product and still no menu.

Any ideas?
