Restricting access to Conversations?

  • App
    WoltLab Suite Core

    As our forum evolves, we have found it necessary to restrict non-paying members from the conversation system because they are using it to circumvent our rules on sales and other things.


    However, then the staff and moderators will have no way to contact these users other than email.


    Are there any suggestions for how Conversations can be implemented between Moderators and non-paying members, without giving them (non-paying users) the capability to also send and receive messages to & from other users?


    Or any other way for staff to contact non-paying members, and vice versa, other than email?

    We're actually using a similar (yet more primitive) solution on woltlab.com to disallow non-customers to start conversations. Anyway, we do support the idea and I've just implemented this for the next major release (3.1): https://github.com/WoltLab/com…12#issuecomment-319329015


    Edit: I've moved the thread into the suggestion forum and marked it as implemented.
