Thanks for your suggestion. It is actually by design that this is not possible. This is because nodes might be moved, new ones may be created, etc., which could potentially have all sorts of strange effects.Ignoring entire categories would be a very nice addition, they do show up in the node list but are grayed out for selection.
This is slightly more complicated than what you are proposing as it raises a number of issues that would need to be addressed and it might be that different users would want this to be addressed in different ways. For example:It would be great, if sub-nodes als also ignored. I have several Forums with plenty subforums, who it only makes sense, if you can select the parent.
Yes, this is possible.Just to check, is the ability to block certain forums for being ignored present yet?
I'm willing to help pay for coding to add the ability for this feature to only show up for certain usergroups. In other words, I want this to be a feature that only my "Premium" users have access to. Is that possible?
if a Forum is selected via parent, and you move it to another location, it takes over the state from the new Parent. Inherited rights. Normal behavior.This is slightly more complicated than what you are proposing as it raises a number of issues that would need to be addressed and it might be that different users would want this to be addressed in different ways. For example:
- What happens when you move a forum that is a sub-forum of a forum that is selected? Does it stop being selected?
He must click all other, but not the one.
- What if a user only wants to select the parent forum and not all of the sub-forums?
It gets inherited the status form the parent.
- What happens when you add a new sub-forum to a forum that is selected?
It should be the same bahavior like the forum rights.Just addressing these problems is a massive headache and would therefore cost a lot of money to develop. If you are happy to pay for this and would like to discuss further, please contact me privately.
