ok guys...here the reason for the bug and the fix..
i deal with core php / mysql issues ... the type normal admins cant deal with.
the error reported here is not an issue with core , its just a wrong setting in
the forum admin ...
there are several user levels and access rights , these are set from the forum
ANY user permission right should be investigated by any of the admins with
root admin access.
it should be pretty easy to double check posting / reply rights for normal
users and make necessary fix......
any probs admins have sorting this.... get back to me...
