    Hey!

    I've just purchased XenForo and I love it. One thing I noticed is that you can create Private forum categories, where people can post something and another user group can have permission to view it. However, people that post in this topic can only view their own posts and nothing important, for example, a sticky thread.

    I'd like it so that people can view their own threads and view sticky threads with information from forum staff in them. Moderators or assigned user groups should still be able to view everyone's threads.

    An example would be at http://hypixel.net

    Thanks!

    I personally wouldn't ever use the "View threads by others" permission, but I can see how it would be useful for certain sites and being able to view threads created by staff in such a forum would be desirable.

    If I get a chance I may knock up a quick add-on for this.

    So basically a "View Threads by staff" permission. Interesting! :)

    Sorry for the bump, but is there any chance of this happening?

    Unfortunately I haven't had the time and I'm not sure when I will have.

    @GuruGamers I am working on an addon for this sort of functionality, as my own staff have requested it.

    That is a php version issue (I developed it with php 5.5/5.6)

    I'll update it soon to hopefully work around that.

    Okay, thanks :)

    It didn't allow anything to load, so I've had to disable it for now
