  • Private Forum Permissions (password)


    I created a category on my board. Under it I want to create subforums that are private and password protected. The idea is to give interested members each a private space of their own. I set one up as a test and it failed. I assume that if I password protect a forum that VB will prompt for the password to that forum? It didn't happen. In the test I ran, either I was completely locked out and got a message saying I didn't have privs or I was allowed in unimpeded. I tried variations on a theme and it simply wouldn't work. Yes, I did specify the password in the forum manager and tried the switches for 'can be a password' in the on and off positions.

    Any ideas? Thanks. -Rod-

    Admins and mods are not required to enter a password. Try it with a regular test user.
