Joint Boards

Post by Stoph on June 30th 2011, 10:38 am

Two guilds on my warcraft server have joined together. now we are still two seperate guilds in the game but we work as one. we both have a forum together, but would be awesome to be able to have some shared boards.


How can one go about that? Setting up a third forum just as a meet in the middle space is a bit... well its asking people to make another account just to meet in a middle ground.


What can i do to get something like this working?

You cant do that...

Each forum is different, you can´t share the database...

So, the only thing you can do is copy/paste all the other posts (the other board posts I mean), in your forum, but, unluckuly, you will have to do it manually...

You could do part of this with group permissions in Adminpanel.

Set up 2 user groups. A and B

In Categories set up 3 Categories
A, B and Shared

Group A: Have access to A and Shared
Group B: Have access to B and Shared

Depending on how you set the Permissions they would either be unable to see, or just unable to post in the opposite section.

Not sure about the colour themes, it might be possible but you can certainly put in graphics in the Category Description to give them a bit of zing Smile

And out of curiosity then before i mark this as resolved.

What about a good old fashioned Merger? sticking two forums into one?

Not really possible. Just provide links to the other forum & vice versa.
