This method is not workable, and defeats the purpose of private threads.

You can let certain usergroups never post sure, but it should be up to the threads author to select who is allowed to post.
Not the admin, that's the goal of a private thread. That users can self moderate their thread to not allow certain groups.

You can use it as a base, it already has part of the functionality, you just need to tweak it to your purpose...

I think that a possible approach is to make a postbit button that only appears on first thread in a forum you specify. That button to open a popup window/form similar to the report or reputation forms. In the form is the auto-complete to grab user names, that then defines who can reply. The hard bit is making the check against that list run without hitting the db every time, as that data should be cached and I suck at caching.

I would suggest taking a look at report.php and memberlist.php. Report php would help with the how to get popup window, memberlist would help with how to get the autocomplete. G33k's thank you like plugin is a good source for how to add to postbit, define forum and first post only.

That's a good suggestion,
I would recommend looking at other plugins to see how they cache data, I learned how to:
- make settings
- make css files, and
- make templates
because of looking at plugin code Big Grin

Hmm, I know that Aniruddh, I learnt a lot looking at code too.

Have you ever heard the phrase "teaching your grandmother how to suck eggs"?

If not, I suggest you look it up Wink

}

Above code is not done! and not functional!

Is starting to give me a headache.
Honestly after trying so many things now i think i will try the following:

- remove the quickreply and replace it with a message. And remove the new reply buttons.
- if somebody does manage to get to the new reply page i will simply error out an error page.
- and remove the option for passwords simply leave it at user IDs and names.

One thing i am still wondering about is if their is a way to auto complete username inputs.

Memberlist.php uses the autocomplete function - that should do it. I am NOT sure if that is a scriptaculous thing though Toungue
