    Yea if that way is fine then i would prefer to set a username and password than disable my forums through admin cp.

    Because i have quite a few staff on my team and i want them and others e.g. my friends to see the forums and help me test the new mods and templates and it is much easier having a global username and password rather than giving everyone admin cp rights..

    They told to use the "Disable Forums" feature in the adminCP.

    Then, your forum won't be visible to anyone unless you login from your AdminCP. So, go directly to the URL of your AdminCP and then you'll be able to go back to your forums and view them same as if they would be enabled!

    Have fun!
    I have often wondered myself if that would be acceptable because to me it would be much easier to just leave the forums disabled in the admincp. I would think that would be ok considering they won’t be accessible by the public if they were disabled that way.

    If you have access to a cpanel, you should have a function there to do that.

    Password protect testvb dir..

    I read in the license agreement that after making the testvb directory so that i can test vb mods and templates i need to password protect the folder so that it is not accessible for public viewing...
    How do i do this?

    Thanks
