Habari comes with a plugin called "Simple Private Posts".
When you activate this plugin, it lets you mark certain entries as being
Private. Look in the "Settings" drawer on the post editing page for a
checkbox that says "Private Post", and check that box to make the post
Until you configure a user group to be able to view private posts, they
will not be visible to anyone but the administrator.
To configure the authenticated user group to view private posts, click
on "Groups" in the admin menu, then choose the "edit" option from the
drop button to the right of the "authenticated" group.
On the editing page for the group, check the "allow" box at the bottom
of the list that says "Permissions on posts marked as 'private'". This
will allow this group to view posts that are marked as private. Click
"Apply" to save these changes.
You can add users to the group at the top of the editing page. There is
also a plugin, maybe two, that will redirect users to the home page
after logging in, which is useful for keeping users out of the admin
that only have that one additional permission.
Is that what you had in mind? If not, it should be easy enough to build
something more suitable if you can describe what you're looking for in a
bit more detail.
Not currently, but that would be easy to expand on in a different
plugin. Would that be of interest to you?
To edit the "private" setting? Look at this screenshot:

I've just updated the plugin in trunk so that any content type can be
made private, and it's not limited to entries.
The question now is about how to get the (very simple) changes to you.
What version of Habari are you using?

My apologies, we've been getting 0.7 ready for release. If you wait a
couple of days more, you can upgrade to 0.7, where the fix is included
Habari 0.7 has now been released, so upgrading will get you the
functionality you're after.
See the upgrading page on the wiki for instructions:
You might also want to look at the 0.7 release notes:
If you have any questions, ask here.
Updating is definitely a good choice. 0.6 is no longer supported, and
there are security issues that are addressed in 0.7.
Habari 0.7 made some changes to themes. The links I sent above
describe how to fix themes for 0.7, and the changes are generally
quite small. Are you using a custom theme you've developed yourself or
a theme you downloaded?
Don't worry, we'll get you happily on 0.7.
Some people have reported this issue, and we believe it is fixed, and
an update will be made soon. In the meantime, you can try changing one
In system/classes/session.php change line 30 from this:
$path = Site::get_path( 'base' );
$path = Site::get_path( 'base', true );
Now delete the cookies for your domain and try to log in again.

I've found the theme and will make a 0.7 version available for you
over the weekend.

I'm sorry you don't find the wiki useful. This page is specifically
about creating a custom theme,
http://wiki.habariproject.org/en/Creating_a_Custom_Theme. If you
could give feedback, I can try to fix things.
By the way, Fireyy's themes are here, in case someone can look at this
before me (Saturday morning in Australia, at the earliest).
You can download a 0.7 compatible version from here:
Let me know if there are any issues.

Thanks for the feedback. When I get a chance, I'll try to improve the
theme-specific pages of the wiki.

You can always get help on IRC. If you're not familiar with IRC,
you could try the LiveHelp plugin.
Yes, the LiveHelp plugin connects to IRC. There is definitely help
available in IRC, but you have to pick the time. Think of it as a room
where people hang out. They come and go, and sometimes there are
people there to help and other times there aren't.
