Uncheck Guest from all of your forums, in each category. You need to do this for each of your forums, one at a time. Click Save after each action. This should be done in Advanced mode.

Guests will then be unable to see your forum or its topics.

Depending on how many forums you have within your categories, it will, most likely be quite a laborious task as each forum must be dealt with individually. I have done it & it is easier once you have done the first few forums.

Go to Admin Panel>General>Forum>Categories & forums>click on to x/tick (permissions), over on the right, for each forum in turn. Using Advanced mode untick all Guest permissions>Click Save. Repeat this for every forum you have on your message board.
