vB Version: 3.5.0 RC3 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 4
Released: 27 Sep 2005 Last Update: Never Downloads: 8
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files Is in Beta Stage  

What does this hack do ?

This hack adds an option in your ACP (forums part) with which you can choose who can create new threads in the chosen forum !
For example, in a specific forum, if you only want that 1 or 2 members of your board to be able to create new threads,
you just have to activate the option for the chosen forum !

You can choose to activate or not this option

You can add/remove users from the list
If a user had already been added to the list, he doesn't appear in the list of users to add.



To install this hack, just upload files in their respective folders :

- forum_can_create_threads.php in the cpadmin folder
- functions_create_threads.php in the includes folder
- can_create_threads_FR_grog6.xml in the includes/xml folder

Then import the XML file in the Product Manager of your ACP !
That's all
Enjoy

Please click the install button if you download it and report bugs

It's my first hack for vb3.5 and nobody else has tested it before

Talking

I haven't insert an input type="text" coz you have to be sure of the user's login
I thought it could be better to choose directly in a list and I wanted to "play a little" to show or not the user in the list if he had or not already been added

But you are perhaps right
That's why I consider it as a Beta

For the usergroup, I agree Blaine, but I created it for a forum where, in only one forum, only one member is allowed to create threads, and I thought it could be a good idea to do a hack for this, it may help some users here

And it's longer to create an usergroup, to change a user's usergroup than to install and use this plugin

Why not just deny privledges to ALL the user groups to START new thread. Then edit the individual permisions per users so that they can start a new thread?

And I may be wrong but this is an extension, not a plug in.

Thanks for your effort though.

better idea would be to insert userids seperated by commas...

or anyway, just a usergroup you give to thread creators...

Well what is the point of creating a whole new user group if say you want to grant access to only one member to start a topic in the forum?
