Solved Making forum private...?

Post by davidl on March 24th 2012, 11:17 am

I am wanting to make my forum private so visitors/guests cannot read/see the topics/posts without registering and logging in........then only members can read what is posted. Ive seen it in the admin panel somewhere but cant seem to find it now.

Thanks.

Hi, to do this, you will need to set the forum permissions up correctly. So go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. General Tab
3. Categories and forums (on the left, under Forum)
4. Click on the permission sign ( Perms ) on a forum
5. Uncheck 'View the forum' and 'Read the topics' for guests

Repeat for all forums as necessary. Very Happy
