Membergroup-based Signature Permissions
« on: June 10, 2017, 03:32:30 PM »
Link to Mod

This mod enables membergroup-based signature permissions for images, smileys and links.

It also provides the option to allow increased privileges (ie, twice as many characters, images, smileys and lines in signature and 50% larger font size) to the values specified in Admin -> Features and Options -> Signature.

Nice one mate. Good to see some of your excellent knowledge formalised for the SMF community.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

Not sure what you mean as it is already membergroup based (unless you're referring to post-count based groups).

Keep in mind this is only a wish list item, not something I'm trying to talk you into doing.

If you look at this mod: https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=409 you see that one can choose to show their signature or not for each post but that's global. I'd like to see it available per membergroup, in addition to the functions in your mod. :)

As per the images for the mod the settings are in the following locations:

1.  Set default/minimum signature options via Admin -> Features and Options -> Signature (this is the default signature permissions area for SMF and has not been changed by this mod)

2.  For each regular member group Allow/Disallow/Deny each option for each regular group (and post count based groups if you've enabled permissions for them) via Admin -> Permissions

Oh - ok - now I understand! 

You're referring to having the ability to allow/disallow signatures on a membergroup basis - maybe this mod is what you're looking for ... ;)

Not exactly. That one chooses which ones can display a signature or not for all posts they make, not each post as they make it. What I'm hoping for is that when a post is being made, there's an additional checkbox underneath the text area that one can select whether or not to show their signature for that post. It's THAT ability I'd love to have allowable by membergroup. :)
