Separate permissions for "New Discussion" or "Comment"

edited September 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
This discussion is related to the Anonymouse addon.
Should it be good if we can have Guests a permission for only Comment (view and add comment) not start a new Discussion.

Right now, if I give them a permission to view category. They can also Start a New Discussion and even for some View-Only-Category, Guests still can post a comment which any other roles can't.

    -) Funny, really.

    You can set category IDs in config:
    $Configuration['Plugins']['Anonymouse']['Category'] = array(1,2,...);
    This overwrite given permission *.View

    And for guest only one type of permssion 'View'. There is no 'Add'.
  • oh, I have to set an array on config.php manually. I only tried on /settings/anonymouse.

    > And for guest only one type of permssion 'View'. There is no 'Add'.

    If I get this right, so Guest can't "Start a New Discussion" on single "View" permission checked category. Is that right?

    Yep, known bug :[-

    > Is that right?
    If guest can VIEW category, then he can ADD comments/discussions there.
    I'll think how this problem can be solved.
