Solved I don't want non-members to see the forum

Post by Kdreml on October 26th 2015, 2:28 pm

How can I make the forum not visible until you register?

The login pop up blocks some of the site but not all of it. I want it not to show any of the content until you register.

Hello and good Afternoon to you Kdreml

Yes you can do that but please take this word of warning on this matter
If you Hide all your Forums so no one other then members can see it then Goolge will not be looking for your Site as it needs to look for parts of your forum to read to list you inGoolge, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines

If you still want to go with what your asking you will need to do the following step to all your forum's

ACP >> General Tab >> Forum >> Categories and forums next to all your Forum names you will see this little icon >> Perms Click it then you will see a screen a little like this

UN-check The one marked as Guest and then save
You will have to do this to all your forums in the list and Don't forget to save each one

Hope that helps

APE

I went through to each topic and made members only. It seems Google bot is still getting info so that is a good thing.

It will still look on your forum and keep the old data until it finds nothing and there servers get cleared that data Google is using now will go in the end as it can not see hid forum's
I know this as it has been posted before and Buttercup Confirmed this was true. I just can't find the post from way back.

what i would say is to make sure you have say 2 or 3 open like a Introduce Yourself & Welcomes
forum and or General topics just so Google can see it and keep your forum open to your new members
