Private forum member access

Post by Segaholic2 »

Is there a mod that would let me restrict access to a forum only to members of a certain user group, without making the entire group moderators? Like, create a different level of user that is allowed to see a private forum.

Kind of like what they have at the Area51 dev board. http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/

Set the permissions for that forum to private, and then add a group that has permission to view the forum (or just change the permissions on an existing group).

Am I supposed to have more options under group permissions? Because all I'm seeing is "Moderator" or "Not Moderator" for all forums; no options to allow them to just view a forum.

under forum permissions set the forum to private. Then under the group permissions grant a group access to the forum
