Block 1 user from seeing category



  • I would like to create a place to post topics where only 1 person is blocked from seeing it. This would be for discussing gifts for example for a specific person .

    What would be the most optimal way to implement this?

    Thank you



  • Create a group and put everyone in it except for that person.
    Apply the group to a new category. (only the people in the group will see the category and the posts)



  • Hi Duke, I was aware of that solution. However, I had hopes that there was an easier way to do this. Because I have to do this for about 50 users. Making seperate groups for each of them works I guess, but would not be ideal. We've been using PHPBB before and they had the option to 'block' one user from seeing that particular category and their posts.



  • @absurdsmash ok I see, you can do this by adding that user to the category under priviledges and remove the find category, view category and access topics check boxes. I havent tried this so test it but it should work.

    NodeBB permissions are additive only, there are no negative permissions such as denying a specific user or group.

    Sorry to bump an old topic; are there any plans to implement such a feature anyway? Or is there a way we can build this ourselves? Its a pain right now to organize birthday gifts and allow everyone but one person.
