Solved Private forum

Post by Equus101 on May 17th 2013, 9:58 pm

From what I gathered so far, as Admin, I can make various topics 'invisible,' (wrong word).

Is there any way to make the whole forum 'private unviewable' to the public?

Not doing anything illegal or wrong. But we're discussing marketing strategies that I don't want competitors knowing about.

Thanks again, ever so much

Yes it all about permissions.

ACP --> General --> Categories and Forums --> Next to the forum you want to be made non view-able by regular members click this Perms and then under the "view and read" part of the permissions un-tick members and all the other groups you don't want to see the forum, then click save.

What exactly do you want to make only visible to members?
