  • restricting style choices by usergroup

    i have a number of styles - some of which i want to restrict usage of - how can i achieve this

    to try and give an explanation

    the board is open to view by passers by - there is one set of forums on view where guests/passers by can view - i want this to be vb default style [for example]

    if a guest joins he becomes a registered user but still only has access to that set of forums and i still want to show them the same forum style

    we have a core of old members who i have set up as a different user group - once they log in i want them to have access to a choice of styles

    i have tried all the combinations [that i can see] of settings for styles and cannot achieve this

    i think it can be done as i think it did it on 3.8 rc1 - unfortanatly i cannot check as we lost the test board where i was trying it to a server crash

    so i guess the question is how do i give a usergroup the same choice of styles that an admin gets

    There is no option to restrict styles by usergroup. It's all or nothing.

    You might find an addon for this on I recommend you search / ask over there.

      Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at
