create certain members only room

Post by pdray on February 8th 2011, 12:02 am

I want to create a room/forum where only a select few can view, I tried setting up one oin "groups" but tonce done, there was nowhere for the group to discuss issues... so really, it needs to be a hidden room where we can discuss in total privacy apart from other members....

How does one do that, coz the permission link only has three categories "all... members....admin"...

ACP -> Users & Groups -> Group Administration -> Create New Group

Then when you go to the forum you want for that group you will see a new row with permissions

I think ye missunderstand what I'm trying to achieve, because ye can only PM people in there, not open a topic, like ye do in other rooms/forums/threads etc.....

It has to be a room/forum where select members of the forum can post new topics and threads without select members of the forum not being able to view...

Then put a private chat box in the new forum that only some have privileges to enter eg. http://xat.com/web_gear/?cb Smile

I don't want a chat box also, I want a room where a certain select few can go and post topics, view topics but "normal" forum members can't...

I've created a group, and that group I've marked as in the certain "room", let's call it "frost" for now, and I have added only certain members of the forum on there, but all forum members can view, I'm trying to achieve a room, in this case "frost" where no normal forum members can either view or go to etc...Only a certain named group of people...so, i created a "room" and clicked as closed group, named the members, but STILL all forum members can view....Does this make sense now?

So, how does one create a place where only a certain few can view, post topics, view topics etc?
