Question - Can I hide some members from unregistered visitors and search engines?

    I currently have Vbulletin 3.8 (it sucks balls) and am eager to get xenforo. My only concern is this; a select few of my registered members' post activity is hidden from view from casual lurkers (hidden from unregistered visitors and search engine indexing). I did that with some custom modifications in Vbulletin.

    Is there a plugin that will do the same thing in xenForo? Or is that pretty easy to program in?

    Basically in VB I created a new usergroup "super members" and used an IF condition... if the visitor was unregistered, and if the post was by a super member, don't show it.

    You can do this on a forum level.

    Guest and user group "X" will not see what you do not wish them to see, but user group "Y" will

    All that does is block them from seeing that individual subforum. It does not specifically block out only that 'ninja group'. It blocks everything.

    AdminCP -> Applications -> Node Permissions ... Next to a node click permissions you can define each groups roles and abilities from there, I have it in place in some of my forums.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding the question.
    So your saying you can hide a usergroup posts completely from guests, but guests can see the other usergroups posts? Inside the thread for example?

    Aww no I thought he meant to hide the forums that they were posting in :unsure:

    maybe I am wrong then :ROFLMAO:

    I would think it should still be simple enough with an if statement though.

    This would make a cool modification. Ninja users... I think I'll give it a shot.
