Re: Individualized Private Forum
So I abandoned the whole idea of modifying the plugin: private-forums, and instead made a makeshift plugin from scratch which serves my needs for restricting certain forums to specified individuals. Where can I post it so people can start making fun of me?
What it does and doesn’t do:
1) require that you edit the plugin file and add individuals’ names to an array consisting of restricted forums.
2) Adds a little [x] next to forums from which the current user is restricted
3) In true-ghetto fashion removes the link to the forum for those restricted forums
4) Does the same (X and link removal)for topics listed in “latest discussions” belonging to restricted forums.
5) Attempts to directly acess the forums via forum.php and topic.php redirects you (again … really ghetto) to the front-page
Doesn’t (kind of a wish list).
1) Have any sort of GUI to add and remove users from restricted forums
2) Hide the forum and its associated topics from being listed at all on the front-page
3) Load an actual page with an actual message stating that you are not allowed in the forum, during attempts to directly access the forums, rather than redirect you back to the front-page.
So, this is my first attempt at a plugin. Please help me improve it. Now where can I post it?
Download it here.
