  • Social Groups Permissions

    Hi there,

    Don´t know if our settings are wrong so maybe someone can help me out.

    When a group is set to:

    Type of Group: with invitation
    Privacy: Only Groupmembers


    Then a group can´t be found on the group lists for non-members of the group because its completly invisible. But this way its hard to get attention of other users that maybe want to join the group and ask for invitation.

    Isn´t it possible to show the group but not the threads?

    If you set a Group to be 'Invite Only' then it won't be listed as it's only available via invite... You need to set the Group to be Moderated then it should be listed plus join requests will need to be moderated.
    Vote for:

    - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
    -
    *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
    - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
    - "Quick Route" Interface...

      No, just tested that and the group still is not visible to non-members.

        Can you attach a screenshot of the Group's settings as I've just tested this and can see a Moderated Group correctly

          Its now set to

          And users, which are no members can see nothing:

          This happens until I set the "who can see group" to members and users. But then other users can also see the group discussions without beeing member.

          I think there is missing one more permission option like for forum channels the "Can view Threads".

              Please post the screenshot in English. We have no idea what your options are set to.

                It was set the way you told me above:

                In Screenshot:

                Type of Group: Moderate
                Who can see group: Groupmembers
                Who can post: Groupmembers

                with the result, that no other user can see the group. (As you can see there are no results in the other screenshot)

                Than we tried:

                Type of Group: Moderate
                Who can see group: Groupmembers and Users
                Who can post: Groupmembers

                with the result that users can see the group AND read all what is written in there.


                Than we tried:

                Type of Group: Public
                Who can see group: Groupmembers
                Who can post: Groupmembers

                with the result , that no other user can see the group. Again.

                This is really driving me nuts

                  If you want everyone to see the group, you need to change Who can see group: Groupmembers to either Everyone or Group Members and Registered.

                      Yes, but then everyone who is not member of the group can also see/read what is written in the group.

                      Sorry for my english..

                      We would like that:

                      Groupmembers and Non-Groupmembers can see a group. But Non-Groupmembers may not view/read what is written inside the group. No Topics or posts.

                      Isn´t this possible?

                        No, thats not our problem. Group Members can see the group and read all posts.

                            No, our problem is not with group members. And there is no special user group "Channel Members".

                            Try it. I think the solution is effective

                          You can't have the group private and viewable at the same time. If you feel this should change, then you need to create a feature request JIRA here:

                            Hm, but that was possible with vbulletin3 for example... or was/is that a third party mod?

                            Then I send in a feature request... thank you.
