How do you set a private forum on an otherwise open board. Like a moderators forum only.

Re: Private


for Mods and Admins only you must make it invite only and further nothing.
If you want more ppl to get in, you must add them in the members list.

how to make the changes:

control panel->manage board->securtiy settings->advanced securtiy settings->fine-tune the forum you like and make it invite only, members only, members only.

this makes it that only the forum members can see it and can post in it.

Control Panel> manage (board)>security settings>advanced security management > fine tune (forum name)

make read & write require membership. you can make the membership gaining method any number of things. if you only want mods and admins, i would make the forum 'no membership can be gained'

Yesterday, I noticed on the Random Board feature a 'Friendship Club'. Tried to access it to see if I'd like to join but couldn't without a password.

Why make a whole board private if you still want members? Why not leave at least one introductory forum accessible to explain what it's about?

Not very friendly at all! emoticon

I agree. Not very friendly at all. However, the feature is there so it's each to his own I suppose.
