Write Control for Kunena

January 24th, 2012

With this plugin you can set individual write permissions for certain categories without affecting their visibility. Like this you can assign read rights to all visitors, but give only certain groups of users write access. In Kunena the write permissions are not set individually, they are controlled using the visibility of each category. However, setting the write access is necessary in some cases. For example if you have a group of subscribers and want to give them write access and you would like to show the entries for everybody.

It is possible to select categories and associated user groups. A multiple selection is possible by holding down the CTRL key while clicking.

The plugin can automatically remove the entry buttons to the form if the user does not have the required permissions. It also prevents direct access to the form. It is possible to redirect the user either using the referrer or a custom URL. The selected categories will be removed automatically during write mode in the category pick list.
