    Waindigo submitted a new resource:

    Social Groups by Waindigo (version 1.0.0) - Allow your users/moderators to create forums from the front end and choose who can view the contents

    Read more about this resource...

    So this would allow a member to create a forum and allow them to be moderator of it?

    Pretty much, although if they are not in the moderator user group then they won't have a Moderation Queue, so that will still need to be done manually. Also, it is important to note that any forums created do not appear in the Node Tree.

    Could you maybe add a toggle to appear in node tree or not.. Also an option to purchase a forum though account upgrades to be made rather then it just being free?

    You could use the built-in User Upgrades feature to sell access to a user group that includes the permission for creating forums. However, this would not be limited to a single forum, but I could probably add a limit permission if someone was willing to contribute for that feature.

    It would be very difficult to have a node tree toggle. It is not just that they are hidden from the node tree, but the whole system was intentionally designed so that the Social Forums are managed completely independently of the node tree.

    Even though this is a paid add-on, my usual policy applies regarding new features. Quite simply, any new features will still have to be paid for by someone, although the cost may be subsidised slightly compared to other development. The majority of the fees will go towards the initial cost of producing this add-on, providing support for the add-on (due to its complexity) and maintaining the add-on for future versions of XenForo.

    Awesome! :)

    Waindigo, do you have a demo ready to use that we can test?

    Because there are so many different combinations of permissions etc., it is impossible to provide a full demo, but I hope that this gives you some sort of an idea.

    But users CAN create their own "subforum", yes?

    Noticed some 'events' listed in your demo. Is that combined with the xenAtendo?

    Users can create one level of social forums in a social category. There are no subforums within social forums at present.

    Okay, so like I'd set a category - games - and the USERS could make "Minecraft" and "TF2" and "World of Warcraft"....Correct?
     
  12. Jon W

    Jon W Well-Known Member

    Yes.
     
  13. Jon W

    Yup. In fact, you could set different levels of categories. So you could have a Social Category called 'PC Games' and allow users to create 'Minecraft', 'TF2' etc., then you could have a normal Category called 'Playstation Games' within which you have several Social Categories for 'PS1', 'PS2', 'PS3', etc.

    I'm not getting the emails to sign up for your site.

    Jon W Well-Known Member

    I just saw it get sent. Did you get it? There appears to be a bit of a delay on the email server.

    Could you set up some caterories as discribed above in the demo as there is currently only one..

    yeah I haven't received mine yet either

    Not sure what is going on. I can do programming, but I'm rubbish when it comes to anything to do with running a server! I've disabled email confirmations and approved your account. Sorry about that!

    Done.
