Show In Forum List as a Node Permission


Active member
Is it possible to make the node option to show it in the forum list as an actual node permission that I can change by group?

Essentially what I have is the addon where users can join groups and I have a lot of forums, so I'd like to have the ability for users to choose which forums appear on the index by joining the appropriate group to reduce clutter, but I can't use "View Node" because then they can't view that node even if they follow a link.

Any ideas?
