    Hey,

    Just looking trough permissions, and can't figure - is it possible to deny regular users from viewing someone else's thread, but allowing thread creator and admins to view it?

    You need to set the permissions for the node.

    Wow, how did I miss this o_O And then higher user groups (Mods/admins) - Allow, yeah?

    Yes you would set Administrators and Mods to allow.

    Okay, another question. For registered members, that forum shows up as private with 0 threads, is it possible to display those threads but deny looking in to them?

    I think that will require some custom work, but it would really not make sense to do so. Why show what stats are in the forum if no one can view threads but their own?

    Something like that I would probably hide the stats and last post info on that node.

    I just assume that some users may think that it's a forum section where nobody can post, since it would show 0 created threads and "Private".

    You could change the "Private" phrase to what you think would be best.

    How would I do that?

    Appearance -> Phrases -> Filter for "private"
