    Yes. They were and are set correctly.

    Check the Forum Permissions for that forum and the Admin group. You will see it if these permissions are set correctly.

    I did it again and it's still not visible for me. What other action do I need to do?

    I added the usergroup, gave them permissions, made the forums private for the rest of them and I still can't see it as admin. Is it meant to be right under the regular forums as another parent forum?

    Then I must've done something wrong.

    I'll try to do it again, and hope I get it right...

    Oh, if only I wasn't a newbie!

    If you set the forum permissions correctly as per my instructions, the people allowed to see this forum will see it.

    Thanks. Done

    Now how do I make the forum viewable to moderators and admins?

    How do I make it accessable to other members?

    Sorry, that should be a 'Yes'.

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Forum Listings Display Options -> Hide Private Forums -> No
    I do NO, or yes?

    If you want people to be able to sign up for these forums, you need to set up a Publicly Joinable Usergroup and Usergroup Leader.

    Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Add New Usergroup

    Then set the appropriate Forum Permissions per Usergroup:

    Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Permissions

    Then hide your private forums:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Forum Listings Display Options -> Hide Private Forums -> No

    Set up another parent forum that...

    Hope I can explain my question well enough.

    I set up a second parent forum and will probably have 2 categories under that. However, I don't want that forum to be visible from the regular forum's home page. I also don't want everyone to just have access to it. I want people to sign up seperately to use those forums.

    How do I go about setting it up?

    If you need clarification (which I totally would understand), please ask me.

    Thanks
