chrisduke So that means anyone could tag their post with "Featured" and it would show up on the home page of the main site.
Not what I want!
Is there another way to handle this type of situation with this extension and Flarum?
Yes, you can restrict posting to that tag "Featured" to only Admins.
In the Admin panel, under Permissions, add a Restrict by tag for the tag Featured
And allow only admins to;
- Start discussions
- Start discussions without approval
Note: This would restrict members and all other groups except Admin from starting discussions under that tag.
As a workaround, you can add the "Featured" tag to discussions started by others to make it appear in the RSS feeds.
But the timing is very important as very old discussions would not be grabbed by your RSS feed grabber if for example your RSS feed grabber fetches the last 10 posts and the discussion you just added a "Featured" tag to is older than the last 10 discussions.
I just say your duplicate post.
I tried Permissions > Restrict by Tag, however that removes the topics tagged entirely.
Still in Permissions under "Featured" tag change "View discussions" to Everyone or Members as you wish.
Go through other Permissions there and tweak it to your desired effect.
