Private Threads (not Forums)

Post by Roslyn » Fri Sep 23, 2005 8:30 pm

Hi, I've looked around for the answer to this, and if I've missed it, please forgive me. I'm new.

I would like, within a publicly viewable Forum, to have threads within it be readable only by the Moderators and the Thread's Creator.

Mods to be able to edit, the Creator able to post, and reply within that thread.

Does this make sense? I know other BBS software can manage it, but I couldn't figure out how to do it with PHPBBS to save my life.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Well, that would require a modification and I'm unaware of any that do such a thing. I'm not sure but do you think possibly just using a private forum could do the trick?

Could this be customised to fit your needs?

It doesn't seem to do what we need, though I'm not technical enough to say so with total certainty. I understand that another site is using PHPBBS to do what I want to, and am trying to speak to their owner to find out how, so far without luck.

The issue is that there will be many threads in the Forum, each one needing to be private to just one user and the mods. Could end up with hundreds of such threads over time, so I am trying to do it as cleanly as possible, if that makes sense?

Thanks for all help!
