Hello,

Anyway back to the problem was wondering if it is possible to make it so that before any user including admins must first log in before even seeing any part of the forum because i need it to be completly locked like this fourm

I don't think you can lock out the admins unless you would change their passwords.

The Admins Are Less Important But I Defiantly Need The Normal Users!

You can do so, but after one day it will reopen.

Administration Panel --> General --> Forum --> Configuration --> Forum in construction --> Yes.

You may also hit the button Customize to change the default text.

I have never seen a way to make mandatory sign in. Maybe someone else knows if there is . . . never seen it. IF there is, then I would proceed below.

I think first, you need to set up either the portal OR an HTML Page that would become your enter page:

Modules>Portal>Show the Portal=YES
Don't add widgets to the portal
Then go to:
Display>Generalities>Your forum direct to=Portal
** You see the option for HTML Page there too. You'd need to make an HTML page first . . .
Modules>HTML Page Management

Hope this helps:-)

Yes, through the templates.

Also, not trying to act like staff, but your going to get in big trouble if you keep double posting.
