This extension adds a new permission which allows the user to see and interact with topics that he didn't start.
When you install this extension, you should see no differences at all from the get-go from the base installation.
As an administrator, you can find all the options of this extension in the forum permissions.

  • 1 new permission role based on the standard access.
  • 1 new permission which, when set to "no" (defaults to "yes"), the user may only see the topics where he is the topic starter.
Quick start:
When this extension installed for the first time, that permission is activated by default.
To prevent a user from accessing the posts, when changing forum permissions, in category Actions set the permission Can read topics started by others (found below Can read forum) to either no or never as appropriate.

Code/translation requests+proposals:
Please create issues or PR as appropriate on github:
