  • How DO I Set Up A Few Forums Only Viewable by Me?

    I wanna add a couple of forums right now..But they aren't ready to be viewed by everyone on the site yet...So for now i just want them to be viewable by myself..

    Can someone let me know how I do that?

    Thanks

    Edit the forum permissions for every user group except Admin and set 'Can view forum' to 'No' for that forum. This assumes you are the only Admin of course. If not, then this requires hacking and you'll need to ask over at vbulletin.org.

      Im still able to see this forum as a regular member or guest...But it won't let me in the forum...I would like these forums to be completely invisible to everyone except for myself.

      How do i do that? thank you,

        Set 'Hide Private Forums' to 'Yes' in the vBulletin Options.

            I'm afraid doing this requires hacking. You can try asking over at vbulletin.org.
