Check the parameters of the boards that aren't accepting the group-as-a-position. Chances are very good that the group doesn't actually have any viewing permissions for that board (or any board). This only shows up when a Group is assigned as a position.

Also, when upgrading, a variable that is needed isn't always properly created in Variables/Settings.pl

In Settings.pl find:
Code
Select All
########## Layout ########## 



Just above that look for
Code
Select All
@nopostorder = qw();                           # Order how "Post independent Member Groups" are displayed
 



If it doesn't exist, add it. Then for each NoPost group you have put a number into the parenthesis that matches the numbers in the curly brackets of your NoPost groups: i.e.:
Code
Select All
@nopostorder = qw(1 2);                           # Order how "Post independent Member Groups" are displayed 

if you have two NoPost groups with numbers 1 and 2.

Good luck Wink

That fixed the problem!  But.... I would still like the member to be shown with the correct "member group" status.  I can assign the member to a group with no problem, but when I assign them to the Position, the missing forum problem comes back.

Also, when "I" upgraded the forum, my member groups weren't there so when I tried to re-create them again I got an error saying they already existed but they weren't anywhere in the Member Group section of the Admin Center.  Huh

I have a member who gets an empty forum upon log in.  Haven't had anyone else have the same issue.  I've tried resetting the user's password and still no forum.  The forum is there, just no boards or topics.   Huh

ok as admin find the user then View Profile for that user then click Modify botton
then goto Admin Edits and look to see if Position: is empty and  Member Groups: if you have this setup and deselect any items here that are select

hope this is of help to you  Wink
