Solved Forum control... Guest Views

Post by awmiller on November 2nd 2010, 4:35 pm

currently we have our forum set such that when you go to our site, all you see is the login window. we used to have it set to where a guest would be able to see all the categories, forums and messages.

what I would like to know is this.... can I set the forum to where once someone comes to the site, but has not logged in yet, that they still see the forum layout (e.g. be able to see all the various categories and forums) but NOT be able to click on a forum and see the messages? What I'm wanting to accomplish is give the visitor a glimpse of what we have to offer but when they want to go in and see the different messages, that we force them to log in just so that they can browse through the messages.

The main goal here is to force the members of our community to log in and get up-to-date with what's been going on and not do so by lurking as a "guest".

thanks!!!

Hello,

You need to set Permissions of the forums by doing that you need to go to

Admin Panel => General => Forum >> Categories and forums then click on Permissions icon witch is this click Advanced Mode from there you can set Permissions who can see the forum and who can read the topic.

Do that for all the forums.

hope that helps.
