Group discussion - set access topic post

It may just be late in the day... but is there anyway way to set all discussion posts to the group that the user is in, so that whenever a new topic post is made within a group only those group members can see it, or do they have to chose from the drop down everytime. The issue I have is that I need separate private groups, so had it defaulted at 'logged in' but all posts show up in the search box.

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

  • I guess Elgg has made things too powerful and flexible. You could grab the addtopic action and override the access level with the owning group's access, and maybe even remove the access input selects from the form. Not too much coding involved there.
