Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.

    I have a new plugin idea.
    This will be a plugin that will check user's permission and hides categories (only on start new discussion page) which user do not have permission to post on. Instead of the default vanilla alert warning of "You do not have permission to post on this category", this new plugin will hide the category when user is on create/start new discussion page.

    Please do you understand my idea and is it a plugin you can develop?

    I guess you can use smarty - for example

    {if CheckPermission(array('Garden.Settings.Manage', 'Garden.Settings.View'))} {dashboard_link} {/if}
