Solved I need to have a secret forum section for a group

Post by stix on March 1st 2014, 9:18 pm

Upon my forum www.kentcoastal.com i need to make one forum that can only be seen by a group, and only those in the group can see and use it.

Is this possible or is there another way

You don't have to change those; leave them the way they are.

Oh, in that case you need to change them to members. You want your members to see the images and links in the forum, right?

Well, only members who are in the group can access the forum. Even if the permissions are set so that members can view images and links, members who are not in the group won't be able to see them.
