  • Creating a Forum for admin and webmaster!

    I know this is a rudimentary question but, I want to create a forum that will only be accessible to the administrators and I do not want it viewable by other Members.

    Please help??

    Edit the permissions of the usergroups that you don't want to view your staff forum and that should be it

      Thanks Omega Prime,

      But how do I not make it viewable.

      For example my admin user group contains admin and webmaster and I only want the forum appearing to them only. I dont want other users to see it. When I activated the forum it showed the forum when I logged out with a "Private" note next to it. I don't want that I want it to completely dissapear or not show for the other members.

        Set the following setting to Yes:

        Admin CP --> vBulletin Options --> Forum Listings Display Options --> Hide Private Forums

        Also make sure that the usergroups who you don't want viewing the forum have Can View Forum set to No in the permissions manager.
