a group to restrict access to various sections

Post by Flappypaddles on October 31st 2016, 2:14 pm

I was looking at other forum hosting sites the other day and one had an option to put people in a group to restrict access to specific sections. this would be a very handy option to have as it saves having to remove people from numerous groups if they are naughty.

for instance it could remove the right to create threads in a section or remove access to the section entirely.

I hope that makes sense to you all

I don't think I see much of a need for it. At the moment you can create a group and set permissions up so that it will be if that is the only group they are in then those are the permissions that they will receive. While I see where you coming from as I said above I don't feel there is a high demand and/or need for this. I'm a bit on the edge about agreeing or disagreeing with this so I will just put agree Smile

but if like me you have many different groups that entry is set on post count giving people various different rights, then if you have to, for instance put someone in a sin bin with limited rights you have to remove them from all those groups and disable the automatic access to those groups for the duration of the sin bin or they get automatically added back to the group.
