This is in the developers area. Im developing an addon which is why I am asking how I would go about adding permissions to the node system. You can currently add user permissions from the developer tab when the forum is set up in developer mode.
Basically the question is whether I am being dumb and there is a similar way of adding to the set of node permissions as you can do with the user permissions in developer mode or whether you need to extend xenforo classes in order to extend the functionality of the system. And if so where is the best place for me to be looking in the base code to give me an idea of what I need to extend.
Just to reitterate this is a developer question not a administration question LOL. Its great that you are trying to help people though We need more of you people around
