Private forums?

Post by Mindgaps on January 31st 2011, 12:08 pm

How do I create a sub-forum that is only accessible to a specific member?

I am running a forum for a role-playing game campaign I am running with some friends.We post information abut when next session will be and information about the game.
Now I want to create subforums that are only accessible to a specific member of the group, a subforum where only the admin and the specific member can view or post. Is there a way to do this?

Hi,

Simply create a subforum then create a group where you want the members to have a special access to that sub forum, then make sure that the permission is only viewable by that group(Make sure that the box is only checked for that group on the box that says 'view and read' and make it unchecked for other groups so that it will only be viewable by that group on Admin Panel > General > Categories & Forums > Permissions of the subforum)
