Solved specific member only forum (or category)

Post by arc anjil January 20th 2011, 8:39 pm

I created another member type (at least I think I did) called Club Member.

I want to allow someone with this setting to be able to access a "Club Members Only" forum. I could make it a Category if it needs to be that.
Regular members (people who register) may post in all the other forums. I'd like to allow for free-wheeling discussions on a lot of topics without the fear of getting dissed or banned but I need to set aside an area for club members.

How do I do that?

Thank you.

You will need to create groups and give the categories/forums permissions for the groups.

So if I go into Users and Groups, select a member, and change his Rank Title to "club member", assign the forum for "club members to see, read and post, that will do it?

Regular registered members won't be able to see, read or post to that forum?

If the above is not true, please be more specific.

Thank you.

If you remove the check marks from members to read/view then yes.

Yeah. Thanks. Looks like it works. Some forums anyone happening onto the site can post to (like the Information forum), and registered members can see and read and post to all except the Members Only, and the Club Member forum is invisible to everyone but, well, club members.

Works great. Thanks for your help!!
