Forum permissions

Post by Max Latimus »

Is it possible to let guests view the forum but NOT read the topics?

If you set the "Can see forum" permission to yes and the "Can read forum" permission to no. This however won't give them the ability to see the topic listing as well.

Probaby the simplest way to do this is to go to the Permissions tab, click Forum roles and create a new Guest Access forum role. When you do that, you'll see those permissions on the Post tab.

After that, go to Groups' forum permissions and assign that role to the Guests group for all of the forums that you don't want them to read.

Personally, I think that phpBB should change Can read forum to Can see topics and add a new Can read topics permission so that people can see the topic list but not read the topics in the list. That's been requested numerous times.

I really like that idea also, can some coder implement this permission?
