Description of problem

Hello,

As part of my group (The ACG) we are looking into hosting a new forum on a more modern website. As part of this we want our forum to be private and only for members of our organisation, what measures can I take to ensure that only members of my organisation can join my forum?

You can also set your forum so only admin's have the right to activate any new account's.

Please note that if your forum is linked to any bot sites or google then you may still get people from all over the world wanting to join the site but you have the right to say no to them.

My advice is to keep your topic's closed to non members and have them set to seen by members only.

Only problem you may have is if you need help with your forum from us will must have your URL and the forum must be open for us to help you or you must have a test account we can use to log in to your forum to see any problems you may be reporting or the look of the forum.
