Solved Making individual Forum's Private for select users

Post by HaVoK on October 22nd 2010, 11:14 pm

I operate a training group, I want to be able to have the general forum's that anybody can access, but I also want user's that have actually taken the training courses to have a separate section that they can discuss the stuff in the training and ask questions that we dont want the general public to have access too.. is this possible?

You can make a group like "special guest" andd then you make a forum and go to permissions on that forum and choose the option only viewable for specal guest group

That's how I thought it would work but even after creating a group called Trainees - it still only gives the options for All, Members, Admins. in the permissions fields.

Untick Guest & Members permissions for each of those forums you wish whichever members' groups to have special permissions to view. Check (tick) the permissions you wish them to have.
