Hi can anyone help me with public groups. Can you set up a group or does only a moderator have access to this option. And if i can set one up, how do i do it?

Any help would be great Smile.

Hi Chicken Boy and welcome to SO.

Public Groups (and private groups) is a feature that we aren't currently using at the moment.

Basically, if it were activated (by me) then users could join a specific group. eg There could be a group created for people who live in North England. Users in living in this area could then request to join this group so they could network, and maybe even have a special forum just for that group.

When an admin sets up a publicly joinable group, anyone is free to join it. These groups can also be moderated by someone, by assigning a group leader.

Hope that explains it! It might be something we use in the future, but the new forum is taking some getting used to, and I don't want to confuse people even more! Big Grin
