Not that I'm aware of, but you can hide the groups button at the top of the forum.
Write API - Adding users to groups
I wonder if you can help.
We are currently in the process of integrating NodeBB into our game server, when a player creates an organisation, adds members, deletes organisation, we are making the corresponding calls to NodeBB write api to do the above.
We only want groups to be managed from game side rather than nodebb side (unless absolutely necessary by admins if there is an issue).
Unfortunately, when we add a member to group, it gives them the group owner 'star' and allows them to manage the group on the forum.
Is there a way to disable this?
Thanks in advance.
