  • Best way to keep adding users to exclusive forum?

    Hi I have this forum where there are more "rights" than others (post html tags, img tags).

    I'd like to add users to this as they reach certain "milestones". I was wondering how do I go about setting up the forum for this, and how do I grant users POST/REPLY access to the forum (no password required), while other normal users can browse thru the forum??

    Thanks in advance!

    Create a new usergroup (User Groups > Add). Revoke permissions from other groups (Registered & below) to post in this forum(User Groups > Modify Forums). Then move your users to the new group when you want them to be able to post in that forum (Users > Prune or Users > Find > username > [edit] > change the group).

      Thanks, the way I see it I still have a question:

      I want the same users who have access to this "exclusive forum" with some Xtra rights for that forum only, to have access to the other forums existing with the "normal rights"

      Does your advice solve this issue? Thakns a lot.

          I setup the custom group, but nowhere can I find enable [img] and [html] vbcodes for that group alone...? Any way to do just this..?

              Ah.. that spoils the purpose of that group. I wanted to give them rights to post images and post html... only.

                If only this group is allowed to post in this new forum (or did I misunderstand that?) then set the forum to allow HTML and IMG tag use by going to Admin CP > Forums > Modify > forum name > [edit] and setting the appropriate options.
