Forum with limited access

Post by pondrocket » Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:26 pm

I have a forum which i use to talk to my moderators which they only have access. Issue i'm having is when anyone of them post in this area all can view post in the quick links area under new post and unread post?? How do i completely lock this forum to only who i give permission to and no one else??

Firstly, how are you checking the users can see this? You can only genuinely tell by creating a new account and looking at the site like your users do, not through the option to view the site with someone elses permissions.

group forum permissions
registered users
select the forum
No Access

Make sure the bots and guests groups are set the same.

Give standard access to the groups you do want to be able to see it.

That is enough.
