Is there anyway to limit visibility and access to post to a category or forum using profile fields? Like say you wanted to have a forum exclusive to women how would this be accomplished currently?
If you really mean with profile fields and not with groups, you’d need to create a plugin that assigned people to a group according to the profile field.
I see I figured there might be some way to make groups condition based on a profile field already.
For conditions like gender to really matter you need to embark on a level of validation which is more suited to IdM than platforms such as discourse.
If you’re using another platform which already has this data consider implementing SSO and having the payload include group membership.
