    I'm trying to deteremine whether posts can be viewed by guests, including when the post is in a private node:

    The code I have is

    Code:
      $postmodel=XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_Post');
      $post = $postmodel->getPostById($postid, array(
      'join' => XenForo_Model_Post::FETCH_USER | XenForo_Model_Post::FETCH_USER_PROFILE | XenForo_Model_Post::FETCH_THREAD | XenForo_Model_Post::FETCH_FORUM
      )
      );
      $userModel = XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_User');
        $errorPhraseKey="";
       
      if (!empty($post) && $postmodel->canViewPost($post, $post, $post, $errorPhraseKey, null, $userModel->getVisitingGuestUser()))
      {
       
    
      return true;
      }
      return false;
    
    but it returns a false positive when I use this in a restricted forum.

    Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Is there a better way to go about this?

    In fact what I would really love to do is get a better grip on permissions in general, for example whether a particular usergroup (which may not be associated with the visitor) has permissions against content, eg does a particular usergroup have permission to view a post on a restricted node completely irregardless of the impact of other permissions. How would that be called in a query?

    Am I right in thinking that guest always has a permission_combination_id value of 1? If so, I think I can take it from there.
