    I have a specific forum section for private requests. I want people to be able to post in that section, see and edit/reply to their thread, but don't want them to see other people's thread. The purpose is to protect each request's privacy. How do I configure it to achieve this? Thanks.

    This is controlled by the "View threads by others" permission. Remove that from the groups that shouldn't have it and re-add it for the groups that should see all threads.

    I saw that option, but it wasn't what I was looking for. I want it to apply for one forum only (eg: Abuse Report forum).

    Use the node specific permissions for it.


    Revoke it for the Registered user group, allow it for the other group.

    Thanks, I got it to work. One small problem during the process though, people can't see the sticky post that gives instructions on how to post on that forum. Is there any way to get around this? Thanks.

    I believe there is an add-on available which allows for that.

    Otherwise you would have to use a notice.
