Unhappy How can I restrict some usergroups from searching on some sections of my board?

How can I restrict some usergroups from searching on some sections of my board?


I would like to have the possibility to restrict some usergroups from using the search. Say, I would like to let only premium users use the search facility on section (sub-forum) "X" and "Y".

On all other sections (sub-forums), I would like to let EVERYONE use search.


Is this possible?



Thank you so very much!

If the group cannot read the section, they cannot search the section. Just don't let that group have permission to view it.

You can't restrict searching abilities on a forum-usergroup basis on a default installation of vBulletin, I haven't seen a modification for it either.

Sorry TigerC10... I really WANT to let users read the posts on that particular section, but only Admins and mods to have permission for searching...

(sorry for posting this question on the wrong forum...)

Ok! Thank you so very much for your answer... I really was afraid of having 'that' answer...

I guess I will have to start a 'quest' for this kind of Mod...?


Anyone would like to start it?

It looks like you would have to play with the forumchoice[] variable. If it isn't defined, then define it to be all allowed forumids. If it is defined, then take a look at the array and remove the forumids you don't want to allow.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Dear Lynne, you are ALWAYS there! I really want to thank you for your help and support!


Well... the problem is that... I'm not a coder...


Is there some coder who could do such hack? (as Lynne said, it does seems to be something quite easy for a coder to do...)


Please...?

You could use a conditional to hide the search link however if members still know the link they would be able to use the feature. Also I think you can rename the page however I am not sure

The conditional would be something like.
