In progress How to Topic/Forum Password

Post by CrystalsSnow on March 28th 2013, 2:39 pm

How do you password a topic or forum on your forums so that only people with the password can enter and read that topic/forum ?
I have been looking around and i haven't found anything.

That is neat. But it doesn't tell you how to get in to the HTML coding to add it .... Also the links in that post are dead.

There is no way to pass protect forums on forumotion at this time. The tutorial above if for pass protecting html pages but is a little older tutorial and also has some security holes, the best thing you can do is create groups and set the permissions for the group and forum for what you want to allow, then put the members you wish to be authorized in that group.
