Help with issue

Post by emtohio »

OK. On my company board we have private section for only supervisors and government administrators.

Here is my issue.

As I said there are private section on the forum that regular users / employees can not see/read.

However there when you click on a person that has access to these sections you can see their recent posts in their profile and when you click that you can see the whole post.

Is there a way to remove this from the profile?

Hello,

Did you create new groups to allow them access to the private forums?
or
Did you allow user permission for every single user allowed into the private forums?

Thanks

When I created the categories and then the forums under them I changed each groups permissions and only the moderator groups can see and write in that topic. I made all other groups (guest, regular uders, new users, ect) as no access.

I apparently posted this in the wrong place. I misread the topic. Can a moderator move to the proper place?
