1) Is it possible to list the members who are logged on, so you could maybe send them private messages?

2) Is it possible to have a live chat; IRC like chat, like in an applet?

3) Is it possible to have some threads locked for only allowed user-groups?

I think I know that this is not possible now, but have you thought about this and is it maybe in implementation???

Cheers!

1) Yes. They are shown in the main page of the forum.

2) No

3) Locked? No. But you can deny posting for to groups for a specific Forum. Go to Admin Panel -> Groups -> Permissions and selected the groups you want deny posting in the option "Read-only forums"

Thanks for the answer.

By locked I mean if you could define a hierarchy of groups.

An example: A school would maybe define two groups: teachers and students (and possible something in between).

Then maybe there would be an access level. When you create a group you would assign it an access level.

Then for instance, the students would have a lower access level then the teachers. Students can read and write on threads that are assigned for that access level.

The teachers have a higher access level and therefore can read and write at their level and also read and write on the student level��?

This would also apply in a hospital environment, having doctors, patients (maybe nurses and other staff in between the patients and doctors).

This is convenient where you have open discussions and also more private subjects that you don�۪t want everybody to have access to.

What do you think about this?

Well, JForum's security schema works a bit different of that. Basically, there is not inheritance / level of permissions - all is based on the group's permissions.

As I said in the previous message, you can get close to it but only for "forum level", not "thread level". I mean, you can have a Teachers group that is allowed to write and read on any forum, and a Student group that is allowed to write and read the "Students Forum" forum, to only read the "Veterans Forum" and is not allowed to even see the "School Internal Discussions" forum.

That's all you can do with current JForum security schema (of course there is a bit more, as you can see in the Permissions page).
