Guest members and full members
« on: September 01, 2017, 04:47:23 pm »
Hi,


I want to create 2 categories of user - 'Guest' and 'Club Member'. I want Guest to have limited access to 3 boards by default.


I then want Club Members to have access to all boards. How do I set up a Guest profile as an automatic default? I can upgrade Guests to Club Members when I have checked they are a paid member of our Club.


Hope this makes sense!


Thanks

Under Boards modify permissions. you can setup the permission profile for the page or what group is part of it.

Hi - excuse me for being very new at this game! I have got 3 boards that the 'unsigned in' public can see but not leave a message. I want a member to then be able to sign in and just see these 3 boards and leave messages/replies on them without me needing to approve their membership.


I then want a further grade called Club Member - these are guys who are a member of our club that can have full access to the 7 boards. I will need to approve these and make sure they are on our separate club membership list.


I am nearly sorted but not sure how to get the 2 categories to work how I want.


Can anyone help - in very simple' click here - do this' language?


Thank you!!

I have Full Members, New Members, and then guests - the boards that the New Members can't see the boards that are restricted though. Each category can only the see boards that they have permission to see. I am not sure that you can have a read-only option.
