Hi, I have two top level categories, with a number of sub pages below. I have one group of users I would only like to see CategoryA and another only see CategoryB (and all sub pages)

Is this possible?

There is no ready option for that because it is unusual! However, everything is possible with some customization. The immediate solution I can think about, other than modifying the core files is to:

If i understood correctly, you have on group (as a created Group)? and 2 categories: A and B
you want some group members to only see Category A and the other members only see Category B

Is that an accurate picture of what you want?

Give me some details so that I can tell you which solution fits your request!

Basically - I am using Kliqqi in a non-standard way. I run the industry events for online conference VidCon. We have one in US, one in Amsterdam and one in Australia. I use a private access version for my advisory board and others to post panel, speaker, etc suggestions and then the group votes them up or down.

It's not a big deal, but I wanted to restrict Australia voting to the australian board, US to the US board, etc.

I could set up separate Kliqqi instances on separate domains, which would solve the problem, but I'm lazy... and I also think it's worthwhile (perhaps) for the users to see what other event boards are thinking of.

Anyway, it works fine now, did it with US earlier this year and rolling out to Australia this week.

I think private access for something like this is interesting, I actually pitched the fund I work at to use it as well, would require feeding stories (potential investments) into the system via MYSQL, but could be an interesting front end too.

FWIW, worked with Digg years ago as CEO of online video company (and sister company) Revision3, and used to play around with Pligg when I was at PC Magazine before that!
