I had an idea earlier… yeah, yeah, I know, perish the thought eh…
So, it occured to me that many of our creative users often post things they are working on across a multitude of topics and for differing courses, in our case. I wondered whether they might like to have a kind of portfolio type feature.
My thoughts were, a user creates a topic, and then adds their screenshots, video clips, examples of code, or whatever else. They could then return to their topic and perhaps add a reply with something new from time to time.
What may muddy the waters a bit would be if other users could reply also, e.g. rather than having an on-going portfolio of work it could get a jumble of conversation in the middle, which would perhaps be better placed in the existing topics, to help keep the portfolio clean.
So, my question is - it is currently possible to create permissions whereby the author of a topic is the only one (excluding admin staff) who is able to reply to it? I saw that there are Create / Reply / See and Reply / See and just See permissions, and there are a variety of groups that these permissions can be added to. Not sure if there is a combination that would allow for the above to work?
Thanks in advance for any help / thoughts.
