Private Forums and Allowing users access.

Post by TheVirginMary »

Okay, if I give forums the Private (Hidden) permissions, and I want to give a large-er quantity of my registered users access to the forums, but I want the general public to not even see the forums, how do I go about that without going through the advanced permissions panel for each user and clicking allow access for view, post, and the other categories?

I don't want to allow the users to delete posts or be able to post stickys, but I want them to have all other privelages aside from moderator ones. What's the most efficient way of doing this?

Thanks,
-TVM

Put all the ones you want in a usergroup?

How do you give permissions to a usergroup?

I can't set people's status at Private to give them permission to private forums. =/
