An ETA is definitely too hard to give. I've been having many varying issues either performance issues or simply lack of time in RL.
This was supposed to be complete a while ago by March or April but those issues have been pushing me to delay the delivery more and more... Maybe I can deliver it by August... maybe.

Thank you for the support. I'm in a great need of it...

Can I use this extension to make the topics visible to only authors and moderators/admins ?
Which means that a Topic is seen by only its author and admins in a specific forum

Thanks for making this extension, I have been searching for this for one of my admins and for my own purposes, it works just the way we want it to for a gaming site. People post character information that needs to be viewable to only staff and OPs.

Keep up the good work :)

It seems like I've been missing some bug reports. Please post them in github's issue tracker from now on. This topic should be for everything else that can be done on the spot.

So far what has been hanging this extension... Here's the explanation:

Search is not being handled correctly: Either cache is used when it should have not been or information leak of topic existence happen. After waiting for too long (sheesh... almost 2 years! Sounds like it will be 2 years...) I think I'll do what I didn't want to. I'll remake phpBB's search inside the extension itself so it supports this feature. It will be awful... it can require maintenance headaches but I'm giving up as I ran out of ideas and I didn't get any PR on github solving this issue. I'll make this work in a way that will work but will not work well while also being fully incompatible with any extension that modifies search...

@yasser33311 Did it install correctly? I didn't get any information since.

OK, back to when I probably can work on this:
I've been checking everything I have to do outside the urgent work I'm being paid for.
This project is finally at 3rd place after 2 things that became more important. Sorry about that but I need to set my life right.
Being 3rd place, the actual date I can solve this is hard to predict because it would require me to predict two other projects whose date I have no real idea.
Based on how I advanced in them in the last 3 months and given the work holidays I will have in the next two months, I should (FINALLY!) be able to pick this up late January.
Sorry about the delay, guys. I simply needed to take a break from the frustration of trying again and again and keep failing to provide you this... And I really screwed up my time with stuff to do...

Hello,

I have read through everything in this topic view thingy. Does it give the option to View Arthur only like the OP one does for the older phpbb? I really need that for my game i am running. Example. Experience folder.... the player makes his post and only HE and a moderator assigned to that post can see it no one else can.

Thank you Kitty.

To be more exact, that's not how it works.
There's a specific permission to allow reading topics posted by others.
Even an admin cannot see the topics unless he has that permission. There are no exceptions. If someone doesn't have the permission, that one can only see the topics started by him.
