I have 5 groups for my forum:

Super Moderators
Clan Admins
Moderators
Banned
Retired

I have a section of my forum for clan discussions, and I want to make that visible only to registered members, but I don't want any members in the Banned or Retired groups to be able to access it.

I tried changing the forum permissions, but everytime I select it so that Members can view that forum, it automatically checks it for all the groups including Banned and Retired... But I don't want that. How can I make it so that all registered members can view it except for banned members and retired members?

Okay you'll want to go to the forum for your clan discussions, and click "Permissions". Then go to advanced permissions, and you'll see under the "Groups" heading, all of the groups.

Once you're in advanced options, simply go through and uncheck everything for Members, so now the normal members can't view or read the topics. Then, that will automatically clear the guest category. Then, simply select the clans that you want to be able to view the category. Simple

Let me know if you have any more questions!

Well, I actually want the normal members to be able to view the forum, but I want to change it so that the members in the Banned and Retired groups can't view it.

I know I could just make a new group and put all the registered members in that and change the permissions there, but it would be a hassle to add members like that...

Is there anyway to do this or no?

There isn't anyway to untick any groups without unticking the default members permissions.
