What does this add-on do?
This add-on is an extension for the Social Groups add-on.
This add-on adds three new ways to set permissions for users of social forums to allow for increased flexibility.
Allow social forum creators to set their own permissions
This add-on adds a new permission that can be given to Social Forum creators and moderators so that they can grant additional permissions to members and guests of their Social Forum.
Anyone with the ability to edit permissions can additionally grant only the permissions that a creator of a Social Forum would have and cannot revoke any permissions.
In conjunction with Social User Groups by ThemeHouse, you can split members up further into separate groups with different permissions.
Allow social forum creators to choose from pre-defined permissions
This add-on adds a new area to the User section of the Admin Control Panel to allow for the creation of Social Permission Sets.
Social Permission Sets are pre-defined sets of permissions for creators, moderators and members of social forums, as well as invited users, unapproved users and guests of a social forum.
Anyone with permission to create or edit a group will be able to select from the choice of pre-defined permission sets.
Set extra permissions on a per Social Category level
When creating/editing a Social Category, admins have the option of adding extra permissions that will be given to members, moderators and/or creators of any Social Forums created within that Social Category.
For example, you could set up a Blog-style Social Category where only creators of Social Forums can create threads, and then set up a separate Social Category where any member can create a thread.
