Solved Want my forum to be closed, private, and to approve new members after they register

Post by Mike64 on March 13th 2014, 11:39 am

Hi everyone,

I'm new to forum administration, I'd like my forum to be private, and to choose who would participate, after registering.

How can I do that?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Mike64,

First you must change the viewing permissions of each forum :
Administration panel > general > forum > categories and forums > edit the permissions of each forum Perms

Remove all the permissions for guests and save :


Then navigate to :
Users and groups > special rights

Change all the rights to members and save.


To change the registration :
Users and groups > Users > user options

Change new accounts activation to admin and save.
