Make a forum that only members of a Usergroups can post in

Post by TMagnum »

I want to have some forum topic areas where members have to join a usergroup before posting. I made the usergroup so that anyone can join. Now I want to restrict 1 forum so only members of that usergroup can read and post.

It is the political forum in my off-topic area. I want everyone to read the usergroup which says it's for mature debating. It is one more step I want my members to do before posting in that one area.

Is there any way to make a topic area for members of a usergroup only? I want everyone else to see the topic area is there, I just don't want them posting until they join the usergroup.

IN case you have not come across it,
This and many other things are explained very well in the
User Guide.
I am not sure why it is not a part of the download.

I was looking for a quick solution without reading a huge manual. But thanks for the link, I guess I'll look it up.

the quick solution is always to read the instruction manual.

in the time you spend trying to find some shortcut to reading, you could already have read it and found the solution.

luck,
