Understanding Roles and Categories
Ok, so Vanilla really is a very interesting way to do discussion, and I plan to use it as the forum for my business once it hits 1.0. I have a few questions concerning how Categories and Roles work. If I set a category so that only Moderators, User Adminstrators and Master Administrator are checked, does that mean only they can post to that category? Does that mean others can view those threads, but not post to them? I'm just looking at it from the perspective of wanting to have an "Announcements" type category that only those who work for the company or are in some way affiliated with it can post an announcement. Normal users should only be able to see those threads. Ultimately I'd like to have more fine grained control. Like Certain users can create a thread, but others can't but can reply to them. Is this planned? Also categories that are seen only by moderators and above... sort of a "wasteland" where threads go to the boneyard if they get out of hand.
