2.1 new permissions? (view board but not enter or read topics)
« on: November 25, 2015, 10:47:52 PM »
I couldn't find anything about this and now running near my server account file limit so don't want to set up a test site just to find out.

Some of the mods for this do not work well so wondering if this has been added to SMF. Rather than make a board invisible to guests if no permission, can they view it exists but require register/login to read.

nope, i really doubt anything like that will ever be in SMF by default.

that concept violates the basic premise that SMF presents:   If you can SEE the action you can COMPLETE the action

allowing users to SEE the board, but not enter, is called "teasing" and is something that I am vehemently opposed to (and is a reason, IMO, to leave a site and never return)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
