Hi guys

I want to post threads on my forum that are only accessible to a particular usergroup.

Making a VIP only Forum is possible, but I haven't been able to find a VIP Only thread on mybb

Any help will be appreciated.

Regards.

More details : 

Eg: I have different sub-forums like fruits, vegetables etc.

under the sub-forum 'fruits' I want to create a thread 'best fruits for improving your memory' only accessible to VIP members [usergroup].

under the sub-forum 'vegetables' I want to create a thread 'best weight loss vegetables' only accessible to VIP members and so and so forth.
Need a plugin to do this then. Why not just make another premium forum and put your premium threads in there?
You can adjust which user groups have read/write access to each and every forum in ACP. 
ACP -> Forums and Posts -> {Your specific forum (or sub forum)} -> Options -> Edit Forum -> Forum Permissions

and you can automate the changing of user groups on whatever basis at 
User And Groups -> Group Promotions

Thanks for your reply, Do you know any plugin that can accomplish this?
You can make a separate subforum and setup permissions so only the VIP usergroup can access.
