  • Usergroup Permissions to make Special Forum for Women

    Hi,

    i have been playing around in my AdminCP trying to make my forum so that i have women section that only opens for people who join the women's club, which is a usergroup. I only want to allow that usergroup to use it.

    I only want that usergroup to be able to see the posts inside.

    However, i do not want the forum to be hidden. I want the forum to be visible, but, when someone clicks on it, i dont want the content visible.

    This can be seen on the following website:

    http://www.islamicboard.com/private-forums/

    Im not sure how to implement that using the permissions.

      That is done with custom forum permissions:

      Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

      Edit the groups for that forum so that only the "women" group has access. You can set the other groups so they Can View Forum but Can't View Others' Threads. Now when users join the "women" group their permissions will change accordingly.

          Create a group for women. When creating the new group, make sure the Public (Joinable) Custom Usergroups option is enabled so users can request to join it:

          Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Add New Usergroup

          Now add leaders to the women's group. These users will be able to moderate join requests for that group so men can't just claim to be women and get instant access:

          Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Add Usergroup Leader (in the menu on the right for the new group)

          Make sure the primary group in question has this setting enabled (so secondary groups can grant permissions):

          Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Allow Users to have Member Groups

          Edit the group permissions for the women's forum. Deny access for all groups except the women's group (and possibly admins if you want):

          Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

          All done. Now users can request to join the group in their:

          User CP -> Group Memberships

          Group leaders can moderate join requests in the same section.

              Go to the Admin CP paths that are specified. The primary group setting is located in your:

              Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Allow Users to have Member Groups

              The forum permissions are you in your:

              Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

                  Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Manager -> Edit Forum -> Show Private Forum

                  There are options for post and thread counts.

                      Is it a private forum? A private forum is one where the currently logged in user does not have the Can View Forum permission in that forum as determined by the group settings in your:

                      Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

                            Send me a PM with a URL and admin login to your forum, as well as the name of a person who is having the problem. I will check their group permissions and your forum settings.
