I'm using hierarchical webs and permissions settings from parent web override settings from child webs.

For example, on parent web

On one of the child webs

As I can see in "Permissions settings of the webs on this TWiki site" permission settings on child webs exactly the same as on parent. Looks like custom settings for subwebs just ignored.

When I add ALLOWWEBCHANGE rights for Group2 in parent web it work fine also in child web.

Twiki version is 4.1.1

Check the parent web for a setting of FINALPREFERENCES. You have probably finalised the ALLOWWEBVIEW setting in the parent web, preventing it from being overruled in the child web. Please set this topic "no action" when you confirm that is what you have done.
