Do you have a screenshot of the permissions page for the board? Make sure that all of the permissions are set to members only. It seems like a problem where one of the permissions isn't set correctly.

Does it look pretty much like this? (NOTE: I added the yellow highlighting manually. )


Nothing on the guests row is checked?

Edit: Whoops, probably should have resized that image before posting it Razz

Ah, didn't see that. Anyway, in simple mode, all you have to do is uncheck everything on the guests row. Advanced mode makes it a little more complicated.

EDIT: Actually, click on the board from ACP, then click on the permissions tab at the top and change it from there. It should be much easier from there.

Hello,

So you want members not to view any content of the forum but see a welcome page? Can you provide a link to your forum?

If the permissions are set correctly, then you shouldn't worry. If a guest tries to view something which they don't have permission for, then they will be presented with a log in screen.

Sometimes it just displays that they're viewing a certain area on the forum when in fact it's a log in screen that they've hit. Rest assured, your forum permissions are working properly. Smile
