    I am using simple forms on my website which allows a user to input specific information and once they submit it the information creates a thread in a specific forum by that user. Because of the nature of the information I do not want that forum to be in public view so I have it in a private forum.

    So my questions is: is it possible to have the individual be able to only see that thread of theres so that I can interact back and forth with them.

    I thought of having once someone submits this form of having them added to a user group that would have permission to view that forum but then I realized there will be other forms/applications in there and I do not want them to see those. I hope I have been clear and maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

    Thank you

    Not without an add-on, no (for the form). You can adjust permissions so that only they can see their own threads.

    Im not sure what you mean by no for the form. I only added I am using a mod that is form like. However when the users submits the form it submits it as a thread in the forum under their username and etc...

    if you say there is an add-on is there one out there. I really thought this might be some permission configuration

    We use this:


    Have it setup on http://pixelexit.com the same way you want it.

    When people submit an inquiry for custom work it creates a thread by them in our "design services" node.

    There's a few ways to take it from there... on ours we hide that node to everyone except someone who submits a form(we auto-promote using the add-on to a usergroup which has access to the node).

    So users can only view their own posts(except on yours you may want to "view threads by others" hit revoke on that one.

    MattW and Snog like this.
