Hi all,

I have just stared using YAF and I am very impressed. I have been using the DotNetNuke forum module but this one kicks it ass!!!!!! :-d

aaaanyway. I was wondering if it is possible to integrate the DotNetNuke roles into this forum. What I am wanting to do is all members who have the DotNetNuke role of "Guild Members" to be able to access the bulk of the forums. However those who have the DotNetNuke role of "Officers" to be able to access the officer only forums.

Please tell me this is possible and if so can you either help me out or point me in the right direction of where I can find the info. I have been playing with the Access Masks and Groups in YAF but still am unable to figure it out.

Thanks in advance.

Hey!
I've been away from yaf for quite a while, so I am not sure that my information is up to date, but the last time I checked, there was no out-of-the box solution to bind DNN role to YAF groups.
I assume that your guild has at the most couple of dozens of officers, so I guess it will not be such a painstaking job to manually assign the officers their own privileges.

If you want "Officers Only" forum, you need to check "Hide if no access" in Admin > Forums. You need to set up "no access" Access mask with all options unchecked, and set it as the access mask for group "members" (or however you call them ;)) in the Officers' forum.


I hope this helps.
Regards
