Here a mockup how it could look like on nodebb.org forum:
Trying to make hidden forums for a subset of users, but all usergroups are visible to all viewers including guests.
Is there a way to make it that a group is only visible by either admins or the users in that group?
@shinyidol You can set the group as hidden under "Group Administration". I don't think this is available in NodeBB v0.6.x.
@pichalite Strange. I'm on 0.7 and not seeing that menu.
@shinyidol that's the group details page, not ACP. You have to be the owner of the group to see that section.
oh strange. i never would have guessed to look there.
got it. thanks.
Keep in mind, marking a group as "hidden" will prevent it's members from displaying the group badge.
(Still new here) How can other users be added to user-created hidden groups?
@agd1 I don't think there is a way right now but this is listed as an enhancement on github
Okay guys, this is done.
... but I don't want you to learn bad habits from this exercise and conclude that if you bug me incessantly, that I'll get stuff done for you, because that ain't happening :rage2:
@pichalite I selected the 'Hidden' button and the group is completely hidden, but I want the group to be visible to the administrator and the users who are part of it.
I also want users to be hidden, but a specific user can only see users who are part of the same group with him. For these I need a new custom plugin, @julian?
