Solved Forum catagory

Post by Mystery_Girl on February 22nd 2011, 2:00 am

Good morning -

I wanted to ask if it's possible for me to set up a category on my forum which is visible to mods and myself only. I would like to hold admin/mod discussions there.

Yes it is.
General>Categories and Forums
Click on that forum name
Permissions tab.

Then give permissions to view, reply etc for that forum to moderator & the admin group.

Hi Sanket -

I set up the forum but when I go to permissions, it doesn't give me the option of choosing mods to view that forum. The preset says:

All, Members, Administrators

Am I doing something wrong? I just can't get this to work.

Do you have a moderators group? Is the first problem solved?

In addition to Sanket, please make sure that you are using "advanced mode" of the permission settings. You may also find this topic to be useful, just make sure you make the necessary changes: http://help.forumotion.com/t38399-restricted-forums

Thank you to you both.

Base; that was a very useful explanation. Thank you! It took me a while to work this out but I finally got there. What I found interesting is that even when I chose the mod group to view the forum, it didn't show up in the pre-set list. That was what was confusing me.

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
