  • Restricting access to specific forums based on infractions?


    We run a classifieds section, people sometimes break the rules of said section. We do not want to ban people for breaking classifieds rules, but we do want to prevent them from posting there.

    Possible solution:

    Create a Infraction Group, put anyone with any infraction points into that group, and restrict it's permissions in that forum?

    Is the bolded part possible? It seems apparently that you can remove the permissions on the usergroup itself, but will the "default to no"-style permissions of infraction groups also apply to group/forum permissions as well?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, it is possible. Just set appropriate permissions for that usergroup for any forum you want.
