Any tips on how to troubleshoot this error? When I change the Permission Settings and click save, the page reloads, but the Permission Settings that I chose are not saved.

In other words, I the Permission Settings aren't saving.

Thanks for a great mod. It's very useful for me.

I noticed the same thing. I think the idea is that if you give the person an infraction, the member must re-accept the rules.

In a previous version, there was a link to reset the acceptance status; in the latest version, however, this link seems to be gone.
