  • [Forum] Allow read access of social group to registered users only

    Hi,

    in the social group settings I can choose different ways of handling memberships. But I found no way to make a social group invisible for guests/non registered users and leave the "grouptype" public?

    Isn`t this possible?

    Thank you - all the best,

    You cannot set it so users cannot even see that the group exists. You may only set it so non-members may not read any discussions in it.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      that would be enough if you mean non-forum-members (unregistered) and not non-group members. If so, how can this be done?

      thank you,

        No, I mean non-groups members - users who are not subscribed to the group.

        If that is what you want, AdminCP > Settings > Options > Group Options > Allow Join-to-View Groups > Yes and then when you create the group, check the option for Join-To-View.

          Thanks. I think this is a missing feature then and I`ll write a feature request.
          It should be possible to create groups that are readable for registered users without having to join the group while at the same time the group remains unreadable for guests.

          In general the groups should have the same features and options as the forums.

            You can see it so Unregistered Users cannot see the groups at all in the Usergroup Manager. There is just no way to do this for individual groups - it's all or nothing.
