forum is split into frames... i.e.: [url removed, login to view]
main game forum - everyone can post view/post BUT only the admin and moderators and submods control it (delete/edit).
30 - 50 crews own their own forum - the crew boss and 3 others they choose from their own crew can view/edit/delete - (admin may also view/manage the forums of the crews). by default admin owns all crews until they are given or bought with game cash.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! as this was explained to me and may give a better understanding of the job at hand.
I have a database... it's got poster, title, body, time, alliance
and category and umm depending where they're posting from/to the alliance/category is different - when viewing an alliance forum it gets the name of alliance and gets the moderators of that alliance - mods then have mod power over the forum if it all matches up.
I think what needs to be understood is that it's NOT 30 different pages - just one page. if say the variable $view_alliance is set then your viewing your alliance forum so you select the posts from where Alliance='your alliance'...
if category is set you select the posts from your category else you just select posts from 'main'..."
ps: has to be exploit/bug free
