  • making private forums and having links

    hey all, I have to questions to ask you guys.

    1. How do I make a private forum?
    a. Only people approved by the moderator of them forum should
    be able to approve people to access it.

    2. How do I make a one of the links in the front page a link to
    a HTML page that I'll make?
    a. Like let's say you if you had section called "pictures" it would
    take you to HTML page with pictures instead of a forum.

    my web site is

    if you visit there, you can see a section called "Enter Private Forums"
    I want to be able to click on that and get a list of private forums.
    And if you are NOT approved by a mod of those private forums
    listed, you won't be able to go on....that's what i want in part 1

    in part 2, Let's say I clicked on "Driver Hangout", instead of going
    to a forum where people can post, it goes to a web site, let's
    say "".

    If someone could give me some guidance, it would be appreciated.

    hi joe

    after you create the forum , you select if you want it private ,, then once its private you use the access masks of each member to allow specific members access to that particular forum ,,

    sorry my old memory isnt allowing me to remember if you can also limit what your moderators can access in the admin control panel,,

    im still new to all of this ,, and probably there is an easier way , not sure ,, but thats how i do it

      For your second question... all you have to do, is place the html link code in the forumhome template.
