    Oh geez. I totally didn't realize that "User groups" functionality was on the nav links themselves. Awesome!

    Just edit the permissions on the link in Site Builder so that Admins can see it. When you edit a navigation or sub-navigation link, you can change the permissions.

    Just be aware it will show in "New Topics" and similar search modules.

    You could set up a channel with permission for admins (or some usergroups) only. Then give the permission to create events.
    Or you could look at this one: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...t-day-of-month

    This is how you see events... and there you could also start an event.

    Yes you can't hide it completely....if you want to do that it is best to set up a private test mirror of the board and test on there.

    That's what I thought but the OP asked to make them hidden while he tested it and Mark's answer to prevent members creating events wouldn't do that so I thought I'd misunderstood how it worked.

    So if they can't create an event they cannot see them either?

    Would you be willing to add a test even or two to your demo site so I can understand them better?

Like Mark.B said ...As long as you have the permission everybody see the event.
    Okay, I think I am getting it. So the event has a thread and people can post on the event "page"? If so, that's actually really cool.

    If they know the URL they could still get to it, but most won't.
    Okay, that's perfect actually.

    Okay, maybe I misunderstand what the Event system is. I was thinking that was sort of a global calendar of events of some sort? We have a sports related site and I was thinking about adding all the games into the Event system and then it would have Google maps for all the away games. And all the users would see the same set of events. But if users can create events, does that mean they have their own private event system and there isn't a global one?

    The reason I ask is, based on your reply, you can disallow user groups from adding events, but I don't see how you can stop them from seeing a menu link to it, but still have it available to other usergroups.
