Creating Private Categories & Links
Posted Jan 10, 2017 - 11:25 am:

I'd like to have an option for WSN Link website members to create categories that can be private or public, and for members to store links that they can choose to make private or public.

It seems that the functionality may already be present in WSN Links, but it's not clear to me how to round up the appropriate functions. For example, I tried the "hide" option, but that seems to hide the content from the category or link owner as well.

Any suggestions on how to set this up?

Perhaps the member links list option gets you partway, but there's no option to choose public or private for that except on a global basis.

If you don't mind separating the public from the private, you can use the "hide" option for private and then place a toplist of their private links in the category template:
<!-- BEGIN TOPLIST 716 -->
<CONFIG>links[,]title[,]20[,]ascending[,]hide=1 AND ownerid={THISMEMBERID} AND catid={THISCATID}[,][,]0[,]0[,]1[,]1[,][,]0[,]0[,][,]0[,][,][,][,][,][,]</CONFIG>
<!-- END TOPLIST 716 -->

Or I could add public/private option on the submit/edit listing pages for $75.
