[ABD] Author Viewable Only MOD

Post by Highway of Life » Thu Jun 07, 2007 1:54 pm

MOD Title: Author Viewable Only
MOD Description: See below.
MOD Version: N/A

MOD Download: In Development

Forum based permissions for specific Topic Authors to be able to view/post in their own topics.
Good for:
  • One-on-one support forums.
    Where some information should be kept private between the support personnel and the customer/user.
  • Account setup forums
    New accounts, or account information would be discussed with appropriate staff and user.
  • Moderator Requests
    Where you would want only Admins to be able to discuss with the individual about the Moderator promotion request.
  • Journal or Blog Forum
    Where a topic author would want to be the only person to be able to post to his own topic, but others would be able to read/see/view it.
    • Expansion MOD/Module
      The topic would contain all the users who have viewed the topic... would keep a running record.
  • Complaints
    Where users can keep their general complaints between the Moderators and the User posting the complaint.
  • Security Tracker
    Where a user can submit a Security vulnerability for any software, and the appropriate staff could discuss with that user privately.
Features
  • Author Viewable ONLY (only the author can view the topic)
  • Author + Others viewable -- Permissions based on a per-fora basis (specific user groups can view all posts within the topic -- the support team -- Good for support forums.)
  • Author Postable ONLY (only the author can post in the topic, but others can see/view the topics based on existing permissions. -- Good for journal-type forums.
  • Author invite -- Author can invite another user (or users) to post and/or view the topic.
Let me know if you have other features you would like added.

Is Ideal for what I need.

A training forum where only the topic starter (a student) and the teachers (usergroup controled) can see and post. So any student could start a topic and reply to thier own topics and any teacher (UG controled) would be able to respond.

That sounds nearly perfect for me. :)

But I need a option, where the author can invite other users to his thread. These users should get the permission to read/write also. :? Is something like this possible?

Sure...
That is a fascinating idea. -- I’ve added it to the road-map, but I don’t plan in incorporating that feature for the first couple of releases.

Hi,

there is already a MOD in release candidate quality which seems to do the same. Or am I wrong?

The Wizard's Self Auth Mod

Thanks Wolfgang.

There has not seemed to be as much interest in this MOD as some of my other MODs, so if there is already a MOD that will do the same thing, I’ll check it out, and if so, may turn my code over to said author, and/or mark as abandoned. (not yet though)

Ok Wolfgang do these other mods have this functionality?
Author Postable ONLY (only the author can post in the topic, but others can see/view the topics based on existing permissions. -- Good for journal-type forums.
If not I hope this mod keeps on being developed. Does it allow for Admin/Mods to edit/delete in case of inappropriate material without going into the modcp?

If I did continue development, then yes, it would have the same in-line moderation functionality of edit, delete etc..

@bonelifer:

Sorry, I can't tell you. I have just upgraded to RC5 to test one of primehalos MODs and the Admin/Mod only BBcode option and now I'm a bit depressed. And tired.

Bye

I’m going to go ahead and mark this MOD as Abandoned [ABD]. I’ve not heard from anyone and there really doesn't seem to be any interest in it.
