Bulk category permission edit


#1

Is there any way to bulk edit category security/permissions?

Right now I have my forum set up so I have a primary category (visible but no topics allowed), and then secondary categories where all topics must be placed inside.

Every time I want to change permissions to these categories, I have to manually edit the primary category and the subcategories separately. Is there any easier way to do this? It seems like the subcategories don’t inherit the security permissions of their parent category right?

I tried searching on the meta with some keywords but couldn’t find any relevant posts

That is correct.

Not that I’m aware of. Fortunately, you generally only have to make changes like this once (initial setup).

If you do it frequently, you could automate it with API calls.
