    Not currently, although several hacks have been discussed. Using user permissions, you can more safely restrict access to certain forums since members won't be able to guess the password and get in. In your CP, scroll down and find the User Permissions area. You can change the settings for each forum and each user group (regular members, moderators, administrators, etc.). Good luck!

        Got to the cp and go to the options got to
        User and registration options ->Enable Access Masks? -> yes

        now go to Users--> Find --> find the user you want --> edit access masks

        their you can specify the forums That user can acces
