Show members-only forums to non-members

Post by cangor » Mon Oct 23, 2017 2:55 pm

Hello,

I have some forums which should only be visible to members. But - to make registering more tempting - I want to show the names of these forums in the forums-list for guests as well. But the guests should not be able to read the posts, if you click on a forum as a guest you should be redirected to the login/register page. So just setting the rights to read-only is not the solution I'd like to have.

How is it done?

Regards

Great, thanks a lot for the fast reply. Just migrated from 3.0.14 to 3.2.1, not sure why this wasn't migrated (did work in 3.0.14, but I didn't know anymore how I did it there :oops: ).
