Not Planned Privacy Controls on Individual Posts

    It would be great if xenForo included a privacy controls option on individual posts which is based on user groups or in individual users.
    For example: I need a specific thread or post to be visible only to specific user-group (eg: stuff) or to specific user (eg: Another administrator) or even showing it to all groups except a specific user-group or user.
    I know we can do that by changing some groups permissions. But this is so complicated and it's not applicable on the post or user level. Of course only the administrators and any privacy control enabled user-group can use this feature.
    The feature I'm suggesting is very similar to Facebook Privacy Controls


    I hope xenForo stuff will consider adding such nice feature to the core of the software.

    I don't see how this would work for a forum.
    Teapot, Andrej and Biker like this.

    Exactly. You'd have people posting stuff that isn't visible to everyone which defeats the entire purpose of having a forum.

    Agree. The in-built ignore feature and private conversations should serve all possible needs for this feature. If you want to only show a post to certain people, don't put it on a public forum; that's not what they're made for.
