Solved Can I make my forum private ?

Post by markt3857 on October 22nd 2010, 1:04 pm

I have opted for new members to my forum to be activated by 'Admin' only.

If I wanted to make it so that once I have the users I want, can i make the forum 'private' so that others cannot try to register ?

Apologies if this is a daft question not really done this before !

Hello,

Yes you can go to A-CP => Users & Groups => Users >> Users options >> Allow new members No and hit save.

Also You need to sit Permissions of the boards by doing that you need to go to

Admin Panel => General => Forum click on Categories and forums then click on Permissions icon witch is this then click on Advanced Mode from there you can sit Permissions who can see the boards and who cannot see.

hope that helps.
