I know that you can restrict users by user level (default or manually locking them) but I’m wondering if there is a way that I could restrict an individual user to just be able to access one individual thread? And I assume in this case that they would only be able to see this thread and then the profiles of all other users but nothing else.
I understand this is very restrictive but it’s intentionally this way. Because I have multiple users that I would like to restrict access to individual threads only, I think the only option at the moment is to do the following:
Have the main users listed as level 1 and restrict all threads and categories to minimum level 1. By default, all restricted users would be level 0 and technically not see any threads. Then for the individual shared threads, grant access by group and include all level 1 users in that group, including the one level 0 user (if the thread is in level 1 would the one level 0 user who is part of the group with access to that thread be able to read it?). My other concern is that I don’t want the different restricted level 0 users to see the threads of other level 0 users. So level 0 user A has access to thread A that all level 1 users also have access to but no other level 0 users, same for level 0 user B etc. My only issue with this is that I would have to remind all level 1 users to always only post new things on minimum level 1. Does anyone know if there is a way to manually restrict a level 0 (or whatever level) to literally only access one specific thread and nothing else on the forum (my forum is private anyway, so only invited users have access).
Also, does anyone know if there is a way to restrict a user from seeing the profiles of other members?
