Prevent threads from one category from showing on index

Post by ycc » Mon Nov 01, 2010 11:52 pm

Hello.

In the forum I am a member of, we have the following problem:

The moderators sometimes post threads (under the board "information from the administration") containing information only suitable for logged in members. (Who was banned etc.)

We do not wish this information to appear on the index-page of the forum for not-logged in visitors under "most recent post" for each category.

At the same time we want threads from all other boards to have the possibility to appear on the index-page for everyone (logged in or not) to see. We absolutely wish to keep information about current topics and their authors on the index-page for everyone to see.

is it therefore possible to make threads from one category (only) NOT to appear on the index-page (as "most recent post") for not logged in members? (Or for both logged in and not logged in visitors)

Thanks.

You can set permissions so that guests can not read the forum. If the latest topic is showing up on the index, you have a MOD that is providing this functionality and should ask the MOD author.
