Create Private Forum

I've tried searching all over the site but can't find any positive hits for this.

I need my forum to be completely inaccessible to the general public and ONLY registered users being able to see the forums and posts.

Is this possible/

Thanks

Re: Create Private Forum

I'm searching for an option similar to phpBB in which when one navigates to the forum index they are automatically prompted to login before they can access any forums or posts.  As a result, only individuals with username(s) and pwd will have any access to the forum.

Please help!  I can't find anything online.  I tried the Miniportal and it didnt work for me.

thanks,

zach

Re: Create Private Forum

That functionality is already built-into Punbb 1.2.*.

Simply do not allow Guest users to read your forums.

Make the setting here:

Administration > Forums > Edit Forums > [Select a specific forum] > Edit group permissions for this forum

                    Read forum    Post replies    Post topics
Moderators              
Guest              
Members

Anyone from the general public will see no forums if you unselect 'Read Forum' for the Guest user group for that specific forum.
