Does XenForo have this capability?

Hi all,
I'm looking to make a forum for students and experts.
The whole value-add of the forum would be that only experts can reply to topics.
Students can create topics, and reply to their OWN topic, but not reply to other's topics.
Experts can reply to any topic, and create their own topics.
Is there a forum software + plugin/extension out there that can do this?
Thanks a lot.

FWIW, I asked on the meta.discourse forum, and a dev there quoted me $5k+ for this capability for discourse.

XF does not have that functionality built in - it would also require custom development.

You should be able to do this with ~50$ worth of addons (+ of course XF license and server cost and domain name is extra).

Well, it should be possible. I can look for you which addons you would need, but takes time to find out.

I believe with this addon, which is free should be able to do what you want.


@Liam W can you confirm?


Or with this paid addon, which I believe doesn't do what you want as only mods can bypass it.


@AndyB can you confirm?


However, if no solution works, you should be able to get a custom development made for a much much lower price than 5k $, probably around 100-200$ by my estimation which is just a number I have made up right now based on my experiences.

Please show me which addons I might need.
