Permissions based on profile info
Is it possible to have permissions granted to people based on their profile info?
The problem I am trying to solve is the following:
We have a community with different subgroups. I'd like to grant or deny access to parts of the forum and categories based on membership of these subgroups.
The solution I came up with was: Have members who register choose from a drop-down menu to which subgroup they belong and the forum will make sure they have the proper access rights.
Is this feasible? Or is there another/better way to deal with permissions, new members and the groups they belong to?
