    Channels -> Channel Permissions.

    All your forums/channels will be listed as well as all your usergroups. You can edit the usergroups to edit their permissions to access those forums/channels. This is exactly the same as it was in vBulletin 3 and 4.

    Setting up various types of forum access?

    I'd like to use vBulletin for online courses. I have some questions about allowing access to particular forums, which I know vBulletin can do but I'm not sure to what extent. Each course will be segregated from any other course. A student can only see forums for his course and nothing else. For example, say I have course A and B with the forums below. 'Graduates' is visible only for students that have completed the course. Each course has 15 students.

    (Course A)
    - General Discussion
    - Support
    - Team 1
    - Team 2
    - Team 3

    (Course B)
    - General Discussion
    - Support
    - Team 1
    - Team 2
    - Team 3

    - Graduates

    All students of Course A can see 'General Discussion' and 'Support'. There are 15 students total in Course A. Teams are divided into 5. Students in Team 1 can see Course A 'Team 1' forum but cannot see the forums for Teams 2/3 in in any course and so on for other teams. No one in Course A can see anything in course B and vice versa. Once students complete their course, they have access to 'Graduates' and no longer have access to their course content. Is this type of access possible?

    I will setup new forums for each course so that new students do not see any postings to start. Course A and B, for say Oct 2012, will get archived once completed. No student can see those forums anymore. But I'd like to keep the content around for records. Is there a way to archive these forums off somewhere? I don't want them taking up space that instructors have to see these old courses mixed in with new courses every time they are in the main forum.

    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....
