Board permissions
« on: January 04, 2017, 10:41:59 AM »
I want to set up some boards so that one group of members has permission to post, reply etc. while another group can only see and reply to existing posts (i.e. they cannot create a new post)

I cannot find a clear explanation of the necessary steps, can someone please help?

set up a new permissions profile
http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/SMF2.0:Permissions#Edit_Profiles
with all of the correct permissions per membergroup

then apply that profile to the board in the board settings
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
