    I want to be able to make a forum for registered users only but still allow non registered user to view the list of threads and the forum itself. Is this possible? So far I can only make the forum vanish completely or be open to view.

    Just set the appropriate usergroup permissions to view the forum and threads, but not post.

      I don't want them to be able to read the threads, just see the titles.

        That is not a built-in feature. It may be possible to write template conditionals to do this but I'm not certain how to do that.

          That's a shame, and I hate to say it but phpbb allows you to do this

                I have done what you have suggested but it shows the first post and then at the end it adds the message.

                I am wanting to set this per forum so I have had to create new styles for each forum.

                I have tried setting the permissions to view forum everything else no, but still no luck
