I think Xenforo need this option When you add or edit a custom BBCode, you will be able to set permissions for: Forums it can be used in. Forums it can't be used in. Groups it can be used by. Groups it can't be used by. Groups that it can be viewed by. Separate replacement for groups that cannot view it. If the user must be a moderator to use it. If the user must moderate the forum they are posting it in to use it. If the user must be an administrator. This will allow you to create BBCodes for moderators, administrators, and some for certain forums only.
