Invite user to a topic inside a restricted category

(Tuan Anh Tran) #1

Is it possible to invite an user to a topic inside restricted category? And only be able to access that particular topic only.

Invitations to group-restricted topics
Add users to topic in private category

I don’t think there’s any way to do this, other than adding a user permissions to the entire category, e.g., through a group membership.

Seems like its kinda suck for those who wants to offer premium content. So far, i havent figured out anyway to do that

You can now invite users to a topic that is in a restricted category.

However you can only do it as admin, and you must specify the group as part of the invite (this is not done for you) otherwise the invite will send them to a 404 (no access) page.

Cool. I assume that such an invitation doesn’t give them membership in that group, or to anything else in that category? (i.e., They have to link directly to it rather than browse to it?)

It does if you specify the group as part of the invite. And if you do not, the user will be dumped at a 404 due to lack of permissions.
