Post by just a little mad on February 2nd 2012, 2:36 am

First and foremost, can anybody tell me how to password protect a specific forum and not the entire board?
And second, can anybody tell me how to disable the bots on my forum? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Use this for password protection;
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
var password = "The password you want";
var string = prompt("please enter the password", "");
if(string!=password) {
alert("Wrong Password!");
go to your category you want locked and paste code above to +html box and change the "The password you want" to ur password and save simple as that

for the bots their guest to ur forum that gather information just restrict your forum to guest can see slight of a little of your forum or none at all or members can only see ur whole forum and bots wont enter your forum
Thanks -Prophecy

Regarding your protected forum question, you can do something similar by using groups instead of a password. Here's a tutorial on how to create restricted forums:

I have a quick question, why do you want to disable bots? I don't find a reason why, unless you are trying to own a private forum, that way search engines won't index and find you. I find no reason to do that, but I hope you can reply with a reason? Wink
