    Click the Forum, then a form appears where you can enter a password.

    Furthermore you can restrict access to every forum through usergroup permisssions:
    ACP / Forums & Moderators / Forum Permissions

      You also have to set up the usergroup for that forum.

      I have about 7 private forums and you have to set the user group as well as the forum itself. Liz

          Mine don't use passwords to get in, I don't try to hamper them with that step.

          Check the Access Mask permissions of the each user to make sure that you have them set right and also make sure that each user is in a secondary usergroup of that usergroup. Liz

            i had a similar problem <br>
            i discovered that i didn't enable the permission inheritance in the user groups<br>
            <br>
            make sure you enable that <br>
