Ban User To Specific Forums

Post by dneff613 » Fri Sep 22, 2017 6:09 pm

Hi all!

I'm building a site for mafia games and I want to know if it is possible to ban someone to a specific forum.

I have two main categories: Mafia Games and General Discussions. If I want to ban someone from the General Discussion forum and not Mafia Games (or vice versa), how do I do that?

You could put them in a group that has all "Never" group forum permissions for that particular forum you don't want them to see. That will cause that forum to be invisible for this user, but not the others. :)

Thanks. Though I want them to be able to retain read-only access.

Is there a way to get a group to expire in a certain amount of time? Let's say I ban someone from discussion for 7 days, can I set it so that they will be automatically reverted back to normal after 7 days?

Then give that group Read-only access for that forum.

This extension may take care of automatically removing them from the group after N days - viewtopic.php?f=616&t=2406951&p=1464062 ... #p14640621
