Not Solved [How To?] Show threads in forum but not content
#1
Not Solved
Is there a way to allow users to see threads and thread stats in a forum, but not allow them to view or read the contents of those threads? I am trying to motivate memberships by allowing them to see that there are posts in the forums, but they need certain access to be able to view the contents.

I have played with the permissions for usergroups in the forums, but if you allow "view threads within forum" it lets them see the contents and not just the titles. I was hoping that the "view forum" option would allow what I need, but it just allows the viewing of the forum on the main page. When clicking on it it will not show that anything is in the forum in question.

I wasn't sure if I am missing something. 

Running the latest version of MyBB.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

You can allow guests only the view of the thread (first post) but not replies with the following plugin :
https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?acti...w&pid=1363

You can disable the showthread.php file to specific groups using the following plugin (this will work for all threads, regardless of forum) :
https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=20

If you want to allow specific groups to see only thread titles in specific forums, you will need an additional plugin for that. It should be possible to code such plugin.

I installed the My Permissions plugin, but there is no submit button on the add rule page. However, it does show in the plugin's screenshot.

I'll see if I can utilize the first plugin somehow, it's not exactly what I am looking for though. 
Thanks for the advice so far!

You can also use the following plugin to block the view of threads based on prefixes, then force specific prefixes for specific forums :
https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=403

With this plugin, users are able to see the thread list, search for threads, among other features, but all places where the full content of the thread is rendered is blocked based on the prefix, this includes : showthread.php, portal.php, printthread.php, archive pages, and new reply page.
