Solved I want guests 2 c forum, but not be able read posts until become member.

Post by snickers2u on May 16th 2014, 8:47 am

Hi, I am using phpBB2 (subsilver) theme. I have 3 forums, 2 open to public. The 3rd forum (Journals) I want to be for members only. But, i want the public to see the 3rd forum (entice them to want to join), just not be able to enter the forum an read posts untill they become members. 


right now they see the forum an can read posts, but cant reply. I don't want them to read posts till they agree to certain rules before becoming a member.

Thanku, but if I set it to members where it says see and read, then when guests look at my forum, the forum journals, the 3rd forum doesn't exist They cant see it (I want them to see it, not open the link to read posts though. but when i log  in as a member I see the 3rd forum.

Hello

There are many permissions to setup:

If you select only the first one, your guests will be able to view and read the content of the forum (For example "Jounal"). They cannot just see the title of the forum and not the content.

If you also select the second one, guest will be also able to write a topic and reply to other topics.
