I'm after a good description of what access masks are, and how to best use them. I'm new to yaf and haven't been able to find any documentation on the feature.

Any help would be appreciated 🙂

The Access Masks are the connection Between A role (Group) an a Forum or sub Forum. That means that you assign an access mask for each User Role (Group) for each forum individually.

The Access Masks handle what a user is allowed or not allowed to do in an specific forum. For example you want to

- Allow Guests to Read a Forum but not allow them to post messages or download Attachments.
- Allow Registered User to read a Forum and to post messages.
- Allow Admins to read/post and also delete or edit everything.

As complete list you can allow or disallow the following things

- Read Access (Allows or disallows to read topics and messages in the forum)
- Post Access (Allows or disallows to post new topics)
- Reply Access (Allows or disallows to reply on existing topics)
- Priority Access (Allows or disallows a user to set the priority of an topic - Pin the Topic)
- Poll Access (Allows or disallows a user Create New Polls)
- Vote Access (Allows or disallows a user to vote on Poll)
- Moderator Access (Allows or disallows mod features edit and delete other posts)
- Edit Access (Allows or disallows a user to edit his on messages)
- Delete Access (Allows or disallows a user to delete messages)
