Different forum permisisons
Allow forums to have different permission levels, example senior players can only access senior forums, junior players cannot access senior forums but can access their own forums. Don't want kids viewing senior comments etc!
We have existing functionality for an authorised members only forum.
We will not be introducing further privacy settings.

I agree, and also think you should be able to add comments about the use of the each forum section and what should be posted in there, ie. language to be used, the purpose of the section.

This is a great idea. I assumed this would already be possible, and when trying to set it up, I found it not to be possible.
We would use this as others have commented. A committe section, a senior and junior divide etc.
Johnny Winter commented
Good idea! We wanted to set up a committee section in our forum which we do not want all members to see - would be a great feature and is fairly standard on forum platforms outside of Pitchero
Chris Renshaw commented
I have built and hosted a separate forum and disabled the Pitchero forum for the reasons expressed here which will take traffic away from Pitchero.
We have senior players whose post match forum banter is entirely unsuitable for junior players or their parents.
Ken Key commented
I completely agree with this. having sections that are restricted by group e.g. senior, Junior or minis as well as a coaches only section would solve a lot of issues.
Alan Press-Officer commented
This would be great. We have a rival team whose players have kids at our club because they have no junior setup. They need to be memebers to see their kids match reports, but that also means they can see everything are seniors say in the forums which is not good!
Martyn Sexton commented
I would like forums that could be restricted to Club Officials rather than all supporters.
Tom Keep commented
I think this is massivley important!! The forum needs to be able to lock down sections based on team(s).
Currently we cannot use the forum because we can't allow junior members to see content that is meant for the seniors. This will affect all clubs who have a junior section, which means that a large propertion of pitchero users are missing out on some core and very useful functionality, which I do not think would take too much work to implement.
