[REQUEST] To dissallow user permissions to public forums

Post by Stain »

Hi, If this has been asked and addressed before im sorry, but, I cant seem to be able to do this, or find a mod to do it for me.

This is what I would like to do:

Every public forum to be viewable / readable by all users (Non-Reg'd and Reg'd) But no-one but Admin / Moderators to be able to Delete / Announce / Sticky.

Well, that bit is easy. The problem lies in, I want to set up a 'Cage' system, where when users are bad, they dont get banned, but 'put in the cage'. Thus dissallowing their Viewing / Reading / Posting rights to all forums but the 'Cage' forum.

Is this possible?!

I have tried for some time now, and cant find a way to achieve this, becuase as soon as you allow 'All' access on Viewing / Reading .. Then you cant individually dissallow this access.

Help!!

Thanks

Without some -major- work, you'd have to hard-code the SQL for each user. :?

Hmmm, what about, makin all forums private, and using usergroups..

But, could there be a way to, when a user signs up, they go straigt into a certin usergroup??

well if user gets put into a CAGE forum where they can't see anything, all they have to do is logout and they can see all the forums again....
