looking for specific permission settings

Post by hanzi » Mon Apr 06, 2009 11:18 am


I have a forum where anybody can join but I want a kind of exclusive board for a certain group on the forum, now what I would like is for the one board to be invisible to the rest of the users but visible to one group, but I don't want to give them any permissions other than what they had or need to post like normal.

Can this be done?

groups forum permissions
registered users
the forum
no acccess

Then make a new group
set their groups forum permissions to standard access
Put the people you want to see it in to the new group.

Their permission of the new group will override the 'no access' of the registered users.
