Making a Board Password Protected/Blocking Guests From Viewing Certain Boards

Post by .:Phantom:. on June 4th 2013, 10:03 pm

How can I fix my forum so that I can add a password on my boards? I have had some issues with a troll coming on my forum and cussing, spamming, harassing members, etc. Every time I do an IP ban, he changes his address. I blocked his area and he still is trolling greatly by using a proxy.

I firstly need to know how to keep him out and away from spamming me. I cannot get rid of him. He will use multiple emails/usernames/IPs. I need to put a common password on all the boards to keep him away. Please help with this. I've had to promote another member to admin to ban him everyday he comes back.

Edit -

I've found that all I want to do is to make it so guests cannot READ the topics in the boards. Not so they are invisible to a guest who wants to see what boards I have.

So do you still need help, the only thing i can say to do is close registration, for a week or so so no one can register.

You can't pass protect forums on forumotion forums.
You have to set groups and forum permissions acorddenly for what you want to allow to the groups.
