  • Password Protect Forum?

    I am trying to password protect a private forum. I put the password in and everything, but it doesnt seem to work? I am still on gamma and I couldnt find this listed in the bugs? Any help.

    This was not a reported bug in Gamma. Nonetheless you should upgrade to RC2 anyway.

      OK, I am doing it right now. Is there something else I should be doing to get this to work? Maybe I missed a step or something?

        Admins, super mods, and mods of the forum in question never need to enter the password.

          BINGO! Thats what I needed to hear!!! So, assuming that the forum is private (the mod board) and can only be seen by mods, the mods would never have to answer the password then, right?

          But if a glitch happens, and people happen to be able to see the hidden forum, then they would have to use the password, correct?
