    Question Forum With Specific User Permissions?

    I am having some difficulty in finding a forum(s) which has a feature I am looking for: specific user permissions defined by the administrator.

    I want User A to be able to post a thread, not able to view threads other than a thread originally posted by User A, able to post a comment only to a thread originally posted by User A, not able to view user info, view comments only of a thread originally posted by User A, and not able to search threads.

    I want User B to not be able to post a thread, able to view all threads, able to post a comment to any thread, able to view user info, able to view any comments, and able to search threads.

    I know this may not make much sense (why?), but this is what I am looking for for my needs.

    Any suggestions? Thank you very much.

    Yep, with vb you can create as many user groups as you wish and completely control their permissions.

    I believe that along with vBulletin, both phpBB and Invision Board do this.

    These are lower cost options (free) that work really well, but everyone knows that vBulletin is king (with a price)
