Title: How can I only allow certain people to access a certain board?
Post by: eric1234 on March 12, 2014, 08:01:59 AM
Besides using the mods which enable accessing a certain board to require a password as well as set the setting of the board that only allow a certain membergroup to see.

Is there anything else or features that can do the same thing besides the 2 which i mentioned? Wanna listen to some ideas or features which perhaps i am not aware of. :) Thank you very much.

I see this topic has been read 34 times not counting my view with no answers. I'm guessing no one understands why you need a different method than the board permissions one (or password). I personally don't know of any other way and I'd be interested in knowing why you'd want another. :)

standard permissions allow you to define which usergroups can access which boards. no mod needed.

Expanding on what Kindred said ... I have created membergroups for specific members so they are they only one in that group. Then they are allowed to use whatever boards I choose. My community is small though so this may not be feasible for a larger one.

of course it is... it's even more important for larger boards that have several sections which are limited to various, specific and distinct groups
