permission of a group - add a new forum (moderated)

I installed the Jforum 2.1.6 and the 2.1.6 patch and I have several Problems with it:
1) In the Admin Control Panel it is not possible to edit the permission of a group within the group list - the following error occurs:
The value of attribute "title" associated with an element type "section" must not contain the '' character.
2) If I want to add a new forum it is not visible if it is assigned to a new category. If it is assigned to the standart category "Category Test" it is visible and in a second step you can move it to the new category. By looking in the database tables the forums of course exist, but I find it interessting, that the categories and forums, that I selected as moderated, when I created them, are in fact 0 whitin the column "moderated" - which means not moderated I suppose.
P.S.: The user Admin is member of all groups.

Regarding 1): sounds like something was missed in the DB update scripts, or the script didn't run properly.

Regarding 2): As you add new forums and categories, you have to give the groups access to them. Even the Admin group doesn't get access permissions by default. Or am I misunderstanding your problem?

Thanks for your advice.

So, if Icould edit the permission of a group, I could properly add a new forum and assign it to a new category.

1)
Although I delete all jforum-tables from my mysql 4.1 database and run the mysql_db_struct.sql and mysql_data_dump.sql scripts, I still got the same error: The value of attribute "title" associated with an element type "section" must not contain the '' character.

You can edit the permissions of a group. Go to the Control Panel, select Groups from the left side menu, then click on Permissions. Look through the Category & Forum settings to make sure the "Allow All" is selected.

When you create a new Category, you have the option to select the groups that have access to it in the "Choose the groups you want to allow the access to this new Category" section. You need to actually highlight (or select) all the groups that should have access ... just having them shown in the menu does not mean they have access, but rather is just the pick list. You must highlight the groups, then click the "Update" button.

You may want to check out the latest DB scripts from CVS. I think some of them have been updated.
