  • Private Forums question

    Hi guys,

    Let's just say that I've just created a private forum that is only viewable for the admin (not even the moderators get to view it). If I create sub-forums where its parent forum is the one I just mentioned, must I also make it private to prevent moderators and visitors from seeing it or is it automatically private and unseen?


    XXX forum (.... this is only viewable for admin)
    -YYY forum (must I set this to private or is it private already because of the fact that its parent is private)
    -ZZZ forum (--------)

    Well, each forum inherits the permissions from it's parent, so you don't have to change anything to keep everybody out

    By the way, to keep out moderators you'll have to specifically deny permissions on the forum parent!

      i should really do this on my board.. it is growing and i will have to add more mods soon.. i think that a separate forum would help keep things organized...
