  • [Forum] Allow guests to see forums, but not access them


    I'm trying to set up some forums that can be seen by guests, but they can't access to view the contents.

    I've been following these instructions in the hope they'll work:

    Unfortunately whatever I do, the guests can click into the forum and find 0 posts. I'd rather they had a message appear that they don't have permission to access the forum in the 1st place.

    Can anybody help?
