    Hi all,
    I'm working with forum module on Sitefinity Standard 3.7 SP4. My questions is:
    Frontend user are registered inside "Subscribers" group.
    On the frontend of site we have to expose a forum, authenticated registered user should be able to:
    - create a new thread
    - post a reply
    but shouldnt':
    - delete a thread
    - edit a post of another user

    Ho can modulate forum permission to do so?
    On the backend forum permission settings I didn't find any setting can fit theese needs

    Thank YOu and best regards

    Flavio

    Hi Flavio,

    You need to setup permissions like shown at attached screenshot. However, if  the modify action is allowed then the users are able to edit each other's posts. It seems, this is a bug...

    Best regards,
    Anton.

    Thank You Anton,
    I tried in this way before but, as You notice, any user is able to modify each other's posts.
    Probably the only solution is derive from SingleForum, EditThread and EditPost classes in order to manage permissions.

    Regards.

    Take a look at CT.Forums module which is available on Marketplace. Perhaps it will allow you to achieve what you want.

    Best regards,
    Anton.
