User Access Manager
automatically prevent users from seeing eachothers posts (8 posts)

    I am trying to use that plugin on a P2 theme but I am running into some issues... What I am trying to do is that user1 (me), the admin, can see all posts and replies, and I then put each userX into a groupX so that they can only see their own posts, with my responses, but not my dialog with another userY...
    This would be great except for the fact that if they post from the front page of the P2 theme, the post is public by default. Even going into the admin section, they would have to specifically tick the groupX box under the New Post screen before publishing it, or it comes out public by default.
    Is there any way to FORCE userX to ONLY be able to post in groupX?
    Thanks in advance for the help,
    Cheers,
    Mathias

    At the moment there is no way to force a post to a group. But I will see to implement this function in a future release.

    Keep in mind that to accomplish this with P2, theme edits will be required as well, as p2 pushes posts as updates to users screens via jquery regardless who that post was intended for.

    Some time ago I created a variation of P2 that does what you're trying to do. My approach was to automatically allocate a category matching the users' id whenever a post is made and to then filter the output based on categories so that users can only see my posts and their own. I had to modify some JS to make sure users didn't see pushed updates from other users. It works great but there's quite a bit of customisation work there.

    I don't mind the customization part and getting my hands dirty...
    Would you be willing to share your work? That would be pretty nice as it is pretty much exactly what I am trying to do.

    @stoupon,

    I will make some time next week to upload it, it still needs a bit of work as a theme, I had to pause the development because of work (it's based off the gtd p2 variation btw) but I think you'll be able to copy some of the code to get where you want to be.

    stoupon, do you still want a look at the code or have you settled on a different solution?

    I'm doing some work on my theme this month and picking up development again when I get back from a 2 week trip. Cool new part: producteev integration.
