Really basic permissions question

Post by jefmcg »

I've got a members only forum, it's available to all registered users. I'd like to make one of the subforums invisible to newly registered users, but I can't seem to get the permission right.

I know this is basic stuff, so can someone point me to instructions, or talk me through it?

Thanks!

Configure permission roles for the user groups in question. If newly registered users (which are members of registered users, too!) don't have access to something: set permission in their role to NEVER. Never breaks all other permissions.

My 2 cents: Whether an extension is in the CDB says nothing about its quality. It is more important to read the support topics for it. Better to avoid authors who do not answer support questions themselves, who do not update their stuff, and who do not fix bugs for years.
