I'm now interested in this reply: viewtopic.php?t=618675#p3429815
Please how do I make the icon (only the solved icon) unavailable to all other users (or user groups) except Admins and Moderators?
Maybe this part is already clear to you, but if you are asking literally "what did they mean by that, or how did they do that"
, they meant that here on phpBB.com/community
the phpBB forum Permission "Can use topic/post icons"
has only been granted to the group(s) intended to have access.
Meaning they restricted the ability to set any topic icon
, not just specifically the "solved" topic icon. Robert is saying "that approach doesn't achieve what you're asking for" because you seem to be asking to restrict only
the "solved" topic icon to a specific group.
If you are willing to do things the way phpBB.com/community
is setup, then yes, there is "another way out." You can change the forum permissions so that normal Registered Users don't have permission to set topic icons, but your Global Moderators and Administrators groups do have this permission. So that your moderators can change the post to show the "solved" topic icon any time they want, but the normal user cannot.
Otherwise, if you must provide access to Topic Icons even for normal users, then the extension is the way to go.
The fact that "the extension didn't work" doesn't mean the extension is not an option; it means you need to solve why it doesn't work. Either by posting in the extension's support section to get help with the specific issue(s) or errors you see with the extension enabled, and/or to create the style-specific support needed for the extension to work with the customization that has been done to the style on your site.
