For a group to be able to access the "create article" form from the front end, that group must have the core create permission set to allowed, other wise it will 403. This is causing me some problems because if the core create permission is set to allow, this will allow users in that group to create articles in every category unless the category's create permission is set to deny, which causes a conflict when a user is in more than one group.

What I will effectively want is for there to be a selection of groups under Registered who can create articles in one specific category but only have registered privileges on all the others. I will want to put some users in more than one group so that they can create articles in more than one category. At the moment I have the core create permission for each of these groups set to inherit and in each category I have set the category create permission to allow.

Joomla calculates that each group should then have permission to create articles in that category only; which is precisely what I want. But when a user from any of these groups tries to create an article from the front end, they get error 403 because they do not have the core create permission set to allow. This does not make the system any more secure because even if a user without permission could access the form it wouldn't matter anyway because they wouldn't have any categories to publish to.

How can I change the program to allow access to the form even if they do not have core permission to create?

This is in the issue is fixed in the trunk already and so will be working for 1.6.b15 and you will be able to click the submit button and save (except there is one other small bug related to accessing the edit form via a category list page).

Do you know if this was ever fixed? I would like to allow some users to create/edit/etc articles in only one category, and not allow them to create or access articles in the other categories. It doesn't matter if it is the front end or back end.

Is this possible? I tried to do it with the category manager, but that gives them permissions to create/edit categories. And when setting permissions in teh article manager, it does not allow you to be specific by category.

This is the 1.6RC forum and Joomla 1.6 has been released for almost 4 months so you should post in the 1.6 forum.
