Restricting articles with groups

Post by joesmithjunior » Sun Feb 23, 2014 9:29 pm

Hi,
I have created groups and assigned them to access levels. I then set 2 articles to two different groups but it is not working. Sometimes I can see the articles even if I am not part of the group. Sometimes I cant see the article even if I am part of the group. Has anyone experienced this problem or does anyone know how to fix this? I am using joomla 2.5. Thanks

Joe

It's probably because of inheritance. Check to make sure that your group isn't inheriting properties of their parent (if they have one) group, which would give them access.
