Opt out of Forum Boards?

In progress Opt out of Forum Boards?

Post by EEYEN3 on November 26th 2014, 12:01 pm

On our site we have a group of forum boards that only apply to a small portion of the site. Is there a way to allow for the users to, in a sense, opt out of seeing those boards for a cleaner experience?

My thought was something like... create a group of opted out people, create a CSS Code (Script?) so that the group doesn't see those boards.

But I don't know if that's possible.

And I don't know how to do it.

Halp plz? Smile

You can create hidden/open/closed groups which have access to certain forums, that way you can add who you want and remove who you don't.

You can do this at your Administration Panel => Users & Groups => Groups => Groups administration

I am not entirely sure on an 'opt out' system, but elaborating on what Ramdaman suggested, it is possible to create restricted forums based on group permissions. Perhaps this topic might interest you:
