Private Categories and Forums

Post by Nerox9 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 6:01 pm

Hello!

I want to ask how can I make private categories and forums that are only visible to staff ?
I totally forgot it...

Thanks!

Make the forum you want.
Make a group and put the people in it that you want to be able to see that forum (or you can use the admin or global mod groups if it's those people)

permissions
group forum permissions
choose the group who can see it
choose the forum
standard access

permissions
group forum permissions
registered users (and repeat for guests and bots)
choose the forum
No Access

Now no one can see it except the people in the group you designate.
