Solved How to set up a private forum?

Post by Panther42 on September 28th 2010, 10:47 am

I got some answers yet I'm quite puzzled at finding a solution as how to set up a private forum... just joined as a newbie yesterday so it's quite a challenge for me. ah lol

Just want a private forum where no public quest could see any forum lists shown except the login page shown on the front.

Is there a manual guide or something so I could use it in order to set it up properly?

With my pleasure, thanks!

General>Categories and forums
click on a forum name
Permissions tab
Then for guests, uncheck all the options & that should be it. Smile

Okay, is it possible to set it up even before any new members coming in?

(sorry - re-edited to correct my question)
