I'm reviving this thread which ended almost 3 months ago to see if there is new info.
I want to implement 3 forums for three groups:
- Group 1: Guest Forum Read & Write "Public"
- Group 2: Member Forum Read "Public" Write "Group"
- Group 3: Special Forum Read & Write "Group"
In other words, users in Group 1 can read and post in the guest forum but can only read the member forum. Users in Group 2 can read and post in both forums. Only Group 3 has access to special forum.
I want a simple way to implement this and even though it's implied in /doc/bboard.html it doesn't appear possible without some code modifications. What do OpenACS people recommend? Any changes expected to make this easier in 3.2.4? (Which I expect soon!)
Has any OpenACS person used the "Group-scope BBoard Module" at http://www.ybos.net/modules/bboard.tcl? It appears to be designed for ACS Classic 3.2.
If not, I'd love to get a step by step on what needs to be fixed.
