Description: Allows a user to define who can view or see his thread.

Features & functions:

1. Simple on/off setting.
2. Choose which usergroups can use this feature.
3. Set in which forums this plugin is active.
4. Moderators has ability to edit who can access threads or enable or disable the checkbox.

While creating a new thread or editing a post, the author of the thread is given with an option to check if the thread is invite only, meaning, only accessible to specified uids in the text box given right below it. He/she is supposed to enter the uids (separated by a comma if more than one) which can only access his/her thread. However, moderators (of that forum), Super Moderators & Administrators can access his/her thread despite of the uids he set. Moreover, no other users except the specified uids can reply to the thread (again, moderators/super moderators/administrators can reply).

Also the invite only option shows on editing post page only if it's the first post (meaning OP) of the thread.

The plugin comes with full language support.

Installation instructions:

1. Unzip the archive.
2. Upload iot.lang.php found inside inc/languages/ folder in the zip to ./inc/languages/ directory of your server.
3. Upload iot.php inside the inc/plugins/ folder which we just extracted now to (root)./inc/plugins directory of your website's server.
4. Go to ACP > Plugins and activate it.
5. Next, proceed to ACP > Settings > Configuration and find invite only threads settings and configure them.


Just simply overwrite/replace the existing plugin file.
