  • private forums permissions??

    How can i set up a couple of private forums for diffrent users.

    Admins forums -- only for admins to view and post
    Team Leader forums -- Only for Team Leaders to view and post

    I only want to set certain registered users to each forums and for them not to see each other forums

    so how can i set the users to certain forums only??

    Admin CP -> Options -> vBulletin Options -> [Forums Home Page Options] -> Hide private forum -> Yes

    if you have a lot of users that will need to access these private forums then you should create a new user group for them to make it easier on yourself. to create a new user group go to:

    Admin CP -> User Groups -> Add

    to change a user's user group:

    Admin CP -> Users -> Find. find their name and click the [edit] link.

    then you need to edit your forum-level group permissions:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Permissions. this part should be self explanatory. just edit the groups that don't have access to the forum by selecting "Use custom settings" and setting everything "no."
