sorry i have a similar question but for the status updates, how i can disable members posting on others members walls ?

to let only members post in their own wall (status) and not each others :)


I'm interested in this too

AdminCP -> System -> Applications -> System (PulldownMenu) -> Messages -> Permissions -> Can access module -> uncheck for the groups who should not be able to use the PM-System

can access the module... does this mean ( for example with status updates module) they can view status updates OR they can actually add them?  I actually want to allow certain groups to be able to add status updates whilst everyone else including guests can only view them

@kar3n2: If you disable "Can Access the module", everything from this module is removed for that usergroup (like it's not installed at all) - so you are not able to set individual rights like view/add/... at this Point. .

But there is a usergroupsetting: <Usergroup> -> Edit -> Social -> Can post Status updates
Just add this right to these "certain Groups" and remove it from all others - i think, this will do what you want (and don't use "Can Access module" in this case, all Groups shoul have Access to this module in your situation)
