VIP Forum

i need a code to make a forum closed off to people, members or guests, so no one can go on it unless they have the right to.

like the admin code, because the admin is the value of 1 and the members are a value of 2 so the admin can go on pages and have more things he/she can do that members cant, i need a code that will set the forum to a value of 3 so only people i set as 3 can go on it a bit like a VIP area.

i want something in the admin panel like 3 drop downs and a go button, the first drop down box will be a list of all the members signed up to the site (same code as the one that gets the members for the members list) and the second one to have each forum name in it and a third on which has the numbers 2 and 3 in it and if i pick a member and pick the forum i want them to be aloud in and the number 3 in the third drop down and click go that sets them as a level 3 member so they have the same rights as level 2 members but are aloud access in the level 3 forum.

the last part of what i need is a code to set a number of a forum in the add a forum part so i can set it to just admin access or members access or VIP access which would only be one drop down box with the numbers 1 - 3 in it to tell the forum what number the people need to get into it.

if anyone can help please let me know thank you.

The description sounds like one from ;) but you can achieve most of what you need by reading about setting private forums in the manual:

To define private forums, all you need to do is to open the bb_specials.php file and insert the values (forum ID's and user ids), like below in bold, and save/upload the file back to the server.

8- is forum ID you want to make private
4, 65, 75, 366 - user_ids (users) which will have access to forum 8


$clForumsUsers[8]=array(4, 65, 75, 366);

Again, all such things are logically described in the manual or you can use the search function to find even more examples.

Your questions appear to be custom. Read our rules first, not even manual - it's impolite to ask others to do the job for you here. Either provide your budget to handle all that to you would achieve, either we will consider that topic as violating our rules.
