What I'm looking to do is lock down my forum. When someone first joins, they'll be in a usergroup, which I'll probably call 'pending user'. I would like to make it so that this user group has posting permissions, but exclusively in the board used for applications, and the help/support board.
Additionally, I would like to expand this functionality. My board is centered around an RP community, and so there are boards dedicated to storing lore. What I would like to do is lock down those boards so that only members in the 'lore' usergroup can post there, everyone else having the ability to read.
From what I have seen, there is a way to toggle posting globally, but I have yet to find a user-specific or group-specific method of doing this.
Any help on this topic will be appreciated.
