Section banning for specific members

In progress Section banning for specific members

Post by Strider Zero on October 27th 2011, 4:59 am

Alright, so let's say I want to keep a certain member from posting in a certain section (i.e the music section). I know that I could make this whole elaborate set up by making a ton of groups specific to each section, but I'm not really willing to do this unless I absolutely have to. I want an easier way to ban just one person from posting in a specific section. Is this possible?

i think you can only remove the view the permission of the user but when it comes in banning all sections plus the forum will not be able the user to see ... Wink

How do I do that? The Option doesn't show on the user's permission area.

I'm not seeing hide here. If I select members, it selects every group.

You can not ban individual members. It has to be a group.

ACP>>USER & GROUPS>> SEARCH USER>> Modify the user's permission Perms And take out their permission to post & reply to a the specific area you want. Wink

That doesn't work. That was the first thing I tried.

Then it's as I thought. Thanks.

Hi!

As slg said, you cannot 'restrict' certain members form accessing a forum, but you can restrict groups: http://help.forumotion.com/t38399-restricted-forums

Is this solved? Smile
