At the beginning I would like to apologize for my English, it's not my native language. If you didn't understand something, let me know, I'll try to explain in different way.

I have 2 problems with my MyBB forum, which (I assume) are connected with each other, but first, I'll give you some information about my site, which can be helpful:
URL: http://skillownia.com (closed, if needed I can give access to ACP)
Version: 1.8.15
Copyright: Yes, footer
MyBB Installation: clean 1.8.15 then merge from IPB 3
CloudFlare: included, actually off (thought this is caching problem)

1. Forum Permission & forumpermissions Cache rebuilding blank page:
When I'm trying to apply changes to Forum Permissions, I see blank page (Error 500, /admin/index.php?module=forum-management). It is very annoying, but I've found out that even with blank page, permissions are updated. I've had the same problem with Moderaration Logs, but php file was missing ";" (thanks MyBB Community). Is there any solution to repair that blank page? I was even comparing my forum-managment PHP file to file from MyBB installation.

The same with rebuilding forumpermissions Cache, with one difference - I don't know if it works.

2. Category/Forum visibility
This is really strange for me, because if you don't touch Category/Forum Permissions, you just on/off this Category/Forum (Active & Open checkboxes in Category/Forum settings), everything works perfectly, BUT if you try to edit permissions of this Category/Forum, noone can see it except Super Moderators & Moderators (even if you disallow them). I did some tests, activating one Forum and changing permissions for the second one. Result? The first one is visible, as it should be, but the second one is visible only for Super Moderators & Moderators. I even checked records in database by phpMyAdmin and everything looks the same, but still it doesn't work the same (attachments). Do you have any idea how it is possible and how to repair this? It is actually blocking us from opening forum after merge.

I'm looking forward to a response, thank you in advance.

Please look at this: AdminCP → Forums & Posts → Manage Forums

Select a forum that you want to fix, you will get a page that looks like this:

This is where you can set Group permissions for each forum that fits your needs.

You will need to use 'Set Custom Permissions' for each User Group.

Does this answer your question?
