also using 2.0 RC1.2 and would love to have this feature available. I wanted to create some boards that users can have 1on1 interaction with group mods or admins as necessary. I have been going crazy trying many different setting to try and accomplish this, but the result was too many membergroups and child boards, very messy to say the least.

I love this mod and would love to see it available for 2.0

I think this MOD: View Topic Permissions does the same thing and it will probably be easier to convince the author to make a 2.0 version (since he is a member of the Staff ;D)

I attach a xml with spanish_es spanish_es-utf8 translations by searching the end of file instead of ?>, to avoid conflict between mods unistall and also the fix of Truzone, when visiting a page with Subject ordering on forums.

A better one, it only skips tha languages files if the are not found instead of resulting in an error.

Hi,

Can anyone help me integrate View Any Topic with Last Topics of Person? I've identified where the two mods clash, and posted the code involved in this post: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=277651.msg2544111#msg2544111

If you can help, please post in the linked thread.

Thank you.

I love to see just a working version of it. For both1.x and 2.x

What's the problem with the installation of this mod to 1.1? If you detail the issue, I may be able to help.

Hakker

well It simply won't install on a 1.1.11 board. I just get a Modification parse error at ViewAnyTopicPermission.xml and it won't even go to the next file and a huge warning stating not to continue. Installing it anyway just doesn't do anything.

Hi Hakker,

I've just tested this Mod on SMF1.1.11 and there are no install errors reported. From the error you have reported, I wonder if you have a corrupt Any Topic zip file. Download another copy from here, delete the old version on your forum, and upload your new copy. Additionally, you are uploading the zip file, aren't you? Do not try to upload the unzipped files.

Yes I use the zip file and it did work under former editions for me however tried it again and again and still the same issue. Yes everything is writable and the test shows no problem however upon execution I get the parse error.

ugh the smf installer seems to set the wrong temporary permissions here :(

Just to say to people that use this topic that I've had serious performance issues caused by this MOD. In small boards they are probably insignificant, but I happen to manage a big board with more than 1 000 000 posts and at least 200 users online almost all the time. Some of the query's this MOD changes/introduces are very very slow and cause locking issues (even if all your tables are InnoDB, with the exception of smf_messages) thus consuming every memory resource available on the server, "crashing" mysql quite frequently.

I was forced to uninstall the MOD and put in its place this one (which works in 1.1.12): View Topic Permissions. It does the same and had no issues with it so far.

Hoping to have something like this also as were on 2.0 RC5.

I run with another guy a minecraft server where I also do the most of the web management stuff and it would be nice to have a forum for game bans where players that have been banned can chat to the admins/mods about why they have been banned in private in there own topic.

As the current mod is only for v1 and the settings in v2 don't list anything that could do it.

Try SimpleDesk, it adds a ticket system to your forum and you can set the privacy such that users can see only their tickets and staff can see all tickets.

You will need to use version emulate to install on RC5 go  to - Admin>>Packages...scroll down, click Advanced, change RC5 to RC3 and install the mod.
After install if you have any questions feel free to visit the SimpleDesk site.

Hi folks.  I'm the author of this mod.  In case it wasn't obvious, I wanted to let folks know that I am no longer a user of SMF, and consequently am not planning on updating this mod for SMF 2.0 or any future versions.  I highly encourage you to find another mod, if one exists.  If one doesn't exist, you are welcome to lobby SMF to have this feature added to future versions, or to write your own mod.  (FYI: You are welcome to use my mod as a starting point, but given the significant changes in the way permissions are managed in SMF 2 vs. 1, I expect you will need to start from scratch.)

To answer a couple questions/issues raised below:
a. This mod was a bit of a hack for a small forum site, and may well have a performance impact on larger sites.
b. This mod replaces some specific lines related to topic permissions.  It likely won't work correctly if combined with another topic permissions mod.

Thanks for using my mod.  I enjoyed writing it, and I'm glad some other people were able to make use of it.

Interesting to encounter another SMF ex.  You have all my sympathies.

I don't really have any problem with SMF.  I am simply no longer building websites that need a forum.

I would too like to see this updated for SMF2.0.
