Im not sure where to post this - if its in the wrong place pls move.
I understand how groups work but am not quite sure.
If I dont give any guest access then I can assume all users are registered users, then if I put them in a full member group they can see all the forums they could before plus those which are for full members alone. Hope thats right.
Admins and Mods are also registered members and likely in practice to be full members so if my previous permissions are good then this too should work. Can I make a forum such that a mod cannot read inside it? Say if it was an Admin only one or a completely separate group like 'My friends'? I think I can....
Ok then there are ranks, I was going to make groups, but then I realised that Im not restricting access based on some of these groups, the 'Guru' is actually a rank not a group in this instance.(?)
I can use rank avatars but then what happens if someone has more than one rank?
This is doing my head in a bit - Then there are usergroups.....
Im losing the plot. Sitting in front of a doc trying to do these permissions etc before I implement them....
Its all merging into a mess in my head. Can anyone shed any light please?
