I was going to start customizing my blog to allow certain users read-only access to specially-marked posts that were hidden from anonymous view.
I notice that in /templates/data/ there are "user groups", and indeed in "group_row.tpl" there are options for certain permissions, to post or post with approval, for example.
How are these data templates implemented? Going to the User Manager doesn't give any options like these. I could write something myself, but if there's already a system in place that I could use, it would be great.
Your guess is as good as mine. That code was there before I took over and I haven't looked at it. It looks to me like it was started but is not a complete feature.
