Restricted Forums

In this tutorial I will explain how to create restricted forums for specific members. I will be using the Advanced Mode of the Administration Panel in this tutorial.

Creating the group

First of all, create a group that you wish to grant special access to certain forums. You can do that by going to:

1) Administration Panel
2) Users & Groups Tab
Restricted Forums Usersandgroupstab
3) Group Administration (on the left, under Groups)
Restricted Forums Groupadministration
4) Create new group button
Restricted Forums Createnewgroup
5) Fill in fields as necessary, but make sure it's either an opened or closed group
6) Hit Save

Creating the restricted forum

Now we're going to create the restricted forum for the special group that you've created. To do so, go to:

1) Administration Panel
2) General Tab
Restricted Forums Generaltab-1
3) Categories and forums (on the left, under Forum)
Restricted Forums Categoriesandforums
4) Create a new forum by clicking on the create button
Restricted Forums Ajouter
5) Fill in the fields as necessary
6) Now to set the permissions, uncheck 'View the forum' and 'Read the topics' for every other group except for the special group you created (administrators cannot be restricted):
Restricted Forums Forumpermissions

The rest of the permissions are completely up to you, but you must have the above permissions if you wish to keep that forum restricted.
