Private discussions for your forum. Allows you to select specific recipients for your discussions.

Goals

  • Create discussions only specific users or groups can participate in.
  • Force new posts in these private discussions to show real-time.

Installation

Use Bazaar or install manually:

composer require "fof/byobu:*"

Updating

composer update fof/byobu
php flarum migrate
php flarum cache:clear

Configuration

Enable the extension under the extensions tab in the admin area. By default, Byōbu will prompt users to specify a tag for their private discussion (if flarum/tags is enabled). To keep all private discussions under one tag, you may specify the tag's slug in the extension settings. At this point in time, this must be a primary tag.

Make sure you configure the private discussions permission on the Admin Permissions tab to your needs;

  • Create private discussions with users
  • Create private discussions with groups
  • Create private discussions with blockers
  • Edit recipient users of private discussions
  • Edit recipient groups of private discussions
  • Transform a private discussion into a public discussion

Notifications

Browser alert and email notifications are available for user recipients of private discussions for:

  • Private discussion started
  • Private discussion replied
  • User added to private discussion
  • User left the private discussion
  • Private discussion was made public

Notifications for group recipients are available for:

  • Private discussion started
  • Private discussion replied

(More notification types are planned for groups soon)
