I am just setting up my first site with SS and have installed the forum module however I am having a problem posting topics.
Forums module has installed fine with no obvious errors.

I have logged in as site administrator and am trying to post a new topic but when I click on the "new topic"link I get taken back to the login page with the following message

"I'm sorry, but you can't post to this forum until you've logged in. If you want to log in as someone else, do so below. If you're logged in and you still can't post, you don't have the correct permissions to post."

I have tried:
- Registering a new user via forum link
- making user a forum admin
- giving user specific access in security

Am I missing something or is this a bug?

Hi, yes I have the same problem. I have set up my site based on the Maori theme and am therefore using that forum customisation but have the same problem. I will continue to investigate but would be keen to see an answer to this one.
