hey FCI, i've tried it and looks it is working perfectly, problem is i am receiving requests from new registrants to add some countries i didn't even know they exist. The requesters claim if their country is added, they'll tell their friends about the forums and stuff which would be great for building up traffic a bit more. My point is, what i need shouldn't be having a limit of 15, may be it'd reach someday to a full country list.
I am seriously considering switching the forums to work on this hack, but i have to ask a couple of questions though before taking this step:
- now if i ran my forums on the 15 fields version, will there be any sort of trouble updating it to the 25 field version "may be later on", like resetting every field choice to its forums AGAIN?!
- is there a clue about new releases of this patch adding fields with simple mods instead of you reconstructing the patch every time a field is added?!

finally, i am very sorry for my late feedback, getting married soon and some preparations should be taken care of.

Just installed and works great with 3.6.5. Thank you for this, works great for setting up a gender specific only forum.

Something for the future if possible - setting to allow admins or one userid the ability to view if they dont have permission to.

Sorry to bump, but Is there a way so I, the admin, can still access all those forums only certain usergroups can access? Because I just setup a Male/Female value, and now, I cant see the girls forum!

too weird, but excelent hack. Too bad most of vborg's missed it.

This is exactly what I wanted! One question - can there be an override such that moderators or administrators can view regardless of profile field settings?

This is nice, but it would be great to have a 3rd permission for non-approved user option: no access, instead of hidden or read only.

Same, it would be nice for that. Administrator and super moderators should be able to override this.

I reaaaally need this to work, but it won't work for me at all on 3.6.8.

I've set all the permissions to allow so the box can make the determination, but it still wouldn't work.

Any chance of getting this to work for 3.6.8? Please? With sugar on top?
