  • Can I make forums private?

    Is it possible to create several forums (ForumA, ForumB, ForumC, ForumZ) and allow certain groups access to only one of those forums? For example, groupA will have access to only ForumA for 1 month. ForumA will then shut down and groupA will be able to access ForumZ for some undetermined period of time.

    Also, I should have no problems creating sub forums in ForumA (Introduction, ProjectA, ProjectB)? Can I also limit access to a sub forum?

    In your AdminCP go to Channels -> Channel Permissions. Find ForumA and remove the access permissions for those groups that shouldn't be able to see it. Sub-forums will inherit their parent's permissions..
