Hi there,

My users are unable reply to posts that's a Global Announcement. I've checked the permissions and don't see anything with regards to that. Could this be an isolated bug or is this just something that happens when a post is made global?

Designed behavior, as a global announcement is in every forum, allowing replies can't really be refined to a basic set of permissions.

Technically one could uncomment the check in addpost.inc.php, but it's completely unsupported; but you'd be looking at:
Code
			if ($issticky == "2" && ($user['USER_MEMBERSHIP_LEVEL'] != "Administrator")) {
				$html->not_right($ubbt_lang['NO_R_ANNOUNCE']);
			}



Though, that'd make it more of a global sticky post

It has always been designed that way.
Best practice is to add a link to a secondary normal topic in the announcement. to allow people to respond to the post.. If you want them to reply.
