Theory Discussion: Breaking Apart the Forum

Post by e39m5 »

Hey Guys,

I need to build a pretty complex mod for my forums. I know php, I just need to figure out the best way, in theory, of accomplishing my goal. Here is what I need to do:

When users register on my site, they are already grouped into teams. These teams are pulled from a third party source. Now, I want to build a private team section on my site with a discussion board. I will setup the discussion categories in my admin panel. This discussion board will be on a separate page and it should only show the posts made by members of that specific team.

So where do I start? Is copying the viewtopic and viewforum files into a different location easy? Is there some feature of phpBB3 I don't know about that will make this a million times easier? Did I explain the task well enough?

Thanks,
e39m5

Can you not do this through the permissions system?

With the permissions you can set it so that only one group can see a forum.

That won't work. I have hundreds of groups and then I would need to make the same forum categories for each group. Also, more and more groups are added each day.

Other ideas?

Anyone? I don't feel like this is a good mod to just wing it.
