Description of problem


Whenever i try to set my forum In-construction mode, I find that normal users still have the ability to login and access the forum, they shouldn't have access to login right? I checked that myself using a normal account, and forum was In construction mode, but i could access..
Is that normal? or i can select users who can get the access when the forum is in construction?

Yes users will be able to login while a forum is in construction mode, however, if they are not an administrator, after they are logged in they won't be able to do much of anything else because they will see your construction mode message no matter what they click. This is normal, they can psychially login, but they won't be able to do anything else really.
