I searched and cant find a thread on it....haha...but is it possible?
Creating custom usergroups sounds like a much better option though.
So your saying out of my 12,000+ members I have to separate the registered members in order to view a certain forum? How stupid!
That's how forum permissions work.
So you're saying it's going to be much more effective to give some of your forum members a special password that they can potentially leak out and give to other forum members?
What's the criteria for getting access to this forum?
You must have some way of disseminating a password to them so there must be some way of identifying them. Is it post count, trophy points, registration date, their age?
In my mind giving a password out to individuals is no different to giving some of them a special user group.
If you're more clear on exactly what you want to achieve and why we may be able to advise a way to automate it.
Well I stand corrected.
But I still think usergroup permissions are way more effective.
It would be really useful if xfrocks put that add-on in the Resource Manager with a more descriptive name.
No, basically it's a password protected room where anyone can have the password if they want to join into the discussion or not, because the room is basically a 'Flame' room for heated debates.
That sounds fun
Yeah that add-on ragtek posted that I had no idea of its existence will help you.
So that add-on allows ANY moderator to set/remove passwords. Is there a way I can edit this to check that only users of that specific forum can set/alter the password?
EDIT: Never mind, this add-on works very well.
Separate names with a comma.
