In progress Create special user/ elevated member rank?

Post by Pheonixx on Sun Feb 09, 2014 1:37 pm

I want to create a member level above general member, but not an admin or moderator. The idea is that i have a forum for specific members only but not open to the general public. Is there a way to achieve this?

I have created a new group and modified the permissions but it does not seem to work properly.

failing that can i password protect a forum?

hello.

I'm sorry, but you cannot password protect forum, and try create new forum, and in permissions change what users can see forum, write in forum etc. It work....

Hi,

I think for a specific users/usergroups you can't create, but you can make the whole site password protected.

There's a tutorial for password protected forum, however, I'm not sure if it's still working.

He's asking for a forum special/accessible for some members only.

Ok, so let us get things clearer, you want a forum to be accessible for special members only? Are you sure you have the following permission for the specific forum? Perms :
View and Read : Checked for that group only
Moderation: Not checked

Hello,

Here is a tutorial on how to create restricted forums based on group permissions: http://help.forumotion.com/t38399-restricted-forums

It is not the same as password protection but it achieves a similar purpose.
