Forum problem. Error: You do not have enough priveleges for this action
I keep getting this message today when trying to reply to threads. Sometimes it goes away after starting a new reply. Error: You do not have enough priveleges for this action.
I'm also seeing other usability problems with the forum software. Anyone else?

Apart from the category index off by one bug I don't know of any problems.
Unfortunately I don't know node.js well enough to dig around in the source code of this forum which is pretty frustrating.
A couple of times when replying, the category wasn't selected, and clicking the dropdown wouldn't actually allow the dropdown menu to appear. Other times, the category was selected, but I still got the error message of not having enough priveleges.
As I was typing this message in Firefox, the compose area was cutoff by the Windows taskbar, and I had to hit F11 to go fullscreen to see the full compose area. I'll have to break this message up...

Have you considered other forum sofware? Vanilla forum and Fluxbb are both GPL licensed, lightweight, and seem to work well on other sites.
I think what is going on is a js issue. Just now when hitting submit I got an error saying that as a new user I can only submit a reply every 120 seconds. I'm using a different browser, and in Firefox I think that I was seeing a generic error message in place of this 120 second error message. But in this browser, the compose area at the bottom of the screen is still being cut off.

I haven't had any issues when using Chrome, IE, and Edge on Windows or Chrome on Linux so perhaps it's a browser issue.
d.healey, it could be. I have tried Firefox and K-meleon so far. Especially for a browser, I prefer using free software because of privacy issues with browsers by big companies.

Have you tried this browser? http://midori-browser.org/, I think I might give it a go.
Btw did you know that Mozilla was affiliated with and almost entirely funded by Google and shared user Firefox data with them and third parties? They currently have a deal with Yahoo.
d.healey, I'm not aware of Mozilla sharing user info with Google. Do you have a link for anything about that?
Midori is not stable here on Windows.

I don't think they are still affiliated with Google, not since Chrome was released. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Corporation#Google
